Potter technique: Casting bodies

Casting bodies are liquid ceramic bodies which are made of powder body with water and deflocculant added. The liquid body is described as slip.

The slip is casted in plaster moulds. A distinction is drawn between hollow casting and solid casting processes. In both cases the porous, water-absorbent plaster mould absorbs water from the slip forming a solid layer.

The use of casting body and plaster moulds enables the potter and ceramists to “mass produce” on a small scale

Convenient for the immediate use, ready-to-use liquid casting body in pails.

Plaster moulds are available in well-assorted ceramic specialist shops.
