More slip-dipping

Even though the weight of the slip makes the cloth sag, the pleats stay in

Combining metallic organza with a non-metallic synthetic organza

A few stitches hold the two types of fabric together

Paper helps hold the shape while the slip dries

Centre - fired clay painted with porcelain slip (wonder what will happen...);
front - drinks-cup band punched, folded, sewn (this will be fragile, I think)

Some of the dipped fabrics

... and the rest of the objects

These are fascinating. I am currently considering using painted "stripes" of plaster as a way of stiffening 3D textile pieces.
