How to Properly Wrap a Foam Cone with Clay

In our last post, we featured a video from Haydee Miranda demonstrating her method for wrapping a Styrofoam ball with cold porcelain. The foam ball is the most common armature used when making cute cold porcelain figures but the Styrofoam CONE is also used often. In the following video, Haydee Miranda demonstrates the proper way to wrap a Styrofoam cone with cold porcelain so you don't end up with cracks or trapped air. Note that the ball of clay she starts with is about equal to the circumference of the shape.

Spanish is the language spoken in this tutorial but I think you can easily follow what's she's doing even if you don't understand what she's saying!

Sorry I had to re-instate the 'word verification'...I'm getting far too much spam in the comment box.
