I spent this morning wandering the local dollar stores in search of some low quality plastic dishes. Why? So I could line them with wet newspaper. After the newspaper dries I can begin rolling slabs and extruding coils for the bases and laying them into the plastic dishes. Once those are dry, I can bisque-fire them and have a mold for each shape. Each shape can be decorated differently to be completely unique. I will have molds for plates, platters, bowls, and oven bakers.
