In the Studio.

This weekend I worked on some Balloon Shells and thought I would take the opportunity to share a little about the process through a couple of pictures. (Thanks to David for taking them) They give you a good idea how the studio is set up. What a mess! I installed a pully system so I can dip the balloons, hang them on the line and then rotate the line in preperation for the next one. There is a trough to catch the drips so they can easily be reconstituted back into slip.

I thought this one would be a good example of their size. Any questions? I will be glad to answer them.

How many layers of the slip do you put on the balloons?
Can you e-mail me at jsu9729k@jsu.edu?
I'm really interested in this process. I'm wanting the balloon shape for some sagger firings I'm about to do.
