Texture Slab Molds for Clay


    Creative Paradise Texture Molds for Clay, also known as texture slab molds, are detailed one piece plaster slabs that have the texture (embossed pattern) across the entire face of the mold.

 

    Use is pretty simple.  Hand built or rolled slabs of clay are firmly press against the mold to acquire the details of the texture mold. The absorbent plaster evenly draws moisture from the clay body which limits cracking and sticking as the clay dries to the leather hard stage. Depending upon slab thickness, water content and ambient temperature and humidity, set up time could vary from 10 to 30 minutes.  Upon reaching the leather hard stage, the embossed clay slab is removed for further drying, assembly into works of art or attaching to other clay objects.  For use with moist clays of any firing range, though smooth clays lacking course grogs are preferred to minimize damage and wear to the detail of the mold.  Casting slips are generally not suitable for use.




sample of Texture Molds for Clay


    Texture Slab Molds are essentially maintenance free, just avoid damaging the details of the mold.  Any clay residue can be simple tapped or brushed out of the mold when dry.  Or use a piece of moist clay and dab at the residue.

    Do NOT spray or coat the surface of the mold with any substance.  In order to function properly the plaster must be able to wick (draw) the moisture from the clay.

   The thickness of the texture slab controlled by the user.  There is no specific recommended thickness, though most people with have better success managing and handling 1/8" to 1/4" thick slabs.
