Turtle Tiles Continued



OK. Remember this guy?

The plaster has dried enough to use the mold.
So, the first thing I do is press clay into the mold.


After I'm sure that I have the clay pressed into
all the crevices of the mold, I slice off the excess. 


I groove the back of the tile to assist in adhering it to the wall.


And when the clay starts to pull away from the plaster mold,
I flip the mold and let the tile drop into my hand.


Next step, drying and firing.

Stay tuned!
