Listen up clay bae!
We've got some important tips, tricks & next steps we gotta share with you...
Make your 2 cups each
Let them dry for 10 days
Fire them at a Kiln
When sticking functional and funky bits onto your clay, you're gonna use a technique called 'scoring'.
1) Simply make little cross hatches and scratches on both bits that are going to stick together.
2) Add a drop of water to each scored areas
3) Roll a tiny skinny sausage (aka coil) and wrap it around the base of what you've added on.
4) Smooth and blend the coil into the mug.
Use this technique to add anything! Even boobies.
Boobies, willies, camel toes... okay maybe not camel toes.
But scoring & coiling is essentially how you add any additional bits of clay.
You want to make sure your cups are incredibly smooth. Smooth out any lumps, bumps and cracks

errythang about firing
Firstly, no you can't fire clay in your house oven. Our clay (which is Mid Fire 33) needs to be fired at 1,000 degrees.
Your local public kiln will bisque fire your pieces first. This just gets all the nasties out so nothing bubbles up inside when you glaze.
Then, you'll glaze your pieces (we recommend using white glaze). Once glazed they will go for their final firing.
Now your creations are fully food safe!
