Wet Sanding

Wet sanding this morning and this afternoon!  The wet sanding process takes time.  I use a damp sponge and wipe off all the rough edges, sharp spots, even up borders if possible, mainly just beautify the piece before it is glazed and fired.  This is done in the greenware stage, before the bisque fire.

I use to bisque fire everything, but anymore I do the glaze fire after the wet sanding process.  The pieces are thin and it seems to be working just fine.  There are a few other potters that skip the bisque stage as well and their work turns out beautifully.

Hopefully will begin glazing this evening.

The weather today is beautiful, sunny but cool, my favorite!
