Well here I am back again and in the studio after a few family happenings and then a long awaited holiday.
I'll post more about the holiday soon...
the formula I used is one I was given while in college:
Shrinkage Percentage of clay = 100 - shrinkage % = X/100 = Y
Finished size required divided by shrinkage allowance = size to make
example: if the clay has 8% shrinkage then 100 minus 8 = 92
92 divided by 100 = .92
if finished size required is 12cm then the size to make now is 12 divided by .92 = 13.04
So I drew up a new template to the new size and they are now drying!
Thanks for stopping by... more posts soon I promise :^)
