Greetings from Colorado! I have a show coming up and need to speed up the drying of my clay sculptures. Please don't laugh (too hard), but can I put them in my oven on low heat? Like 200 degrees for a few hours?
I'm curious, did you put your pieces in the oven to dry? How did work out. I've done that only 2 times and one time it worked out fine and the last time I had a vase crack all the way down the middle.
Intersting idea. I would think it would work just like in the kiln at a pre heat.
I would put them in then turn on the stove so they heat yp gradually
