Qxd Caren A. Goodrich, “Grizzly Bear #1,” 6" x 6". Modeled in plasteline, then cast in plaster. White clay body with commercial glazes. Loading the Kiln for Bisque Firing You will be able to fit a lot more tile in the kiln during a bisque firing than during a glaze firing because there’s no danger of unglazed tiles fusing together. There are different ways to load the kiln based on the kiln size, shape, and what you’re firing. If you are loading field tiles, you can stack two to three on top of each other at one end of the shelf, almost like a bookend.

Setting and Releasing the Mold Immediately take care of the excess plaster before it sets up by pouring the excess plaster in a throw-away container to harden so you can dispose of it later. Immediately pour clean water in the plaster bucket to dilute any residue. Pour 48 this also in the waste container and allow the water to evaporate. Warning: Avoid contact with your bare skin during the crystallization phase or when the plaster is setting up. During these processes, the plaster will reach a temperature of over 95ºF.

Adding water to powdered plaster will start the crystallization process, and within minutes will cause it to harden. Always use fresh plaster to make molds. Old plaster has had time to absorb moisture from the atmosphere, so it already has a head start on the crystallization process. This means you will have less time to mix and pour. Important things to consider before you mix plaster are water purity, water temperature, soaking time, and mixing technique. All of these things will have an effect on the pouring time, mold strength, and mold drying time.
