Cornstarch...a powdered miracle worker!
This same process can be used if you are using any sort of rubber or plastic material to make an impression in the clay. Sprinkle a little cornstarch on the clay and then press your design into it...the cornstarch allows the plastic material to release from the clay without ripping it. (It is a lot like adding flour to your dough to keep it from sticking to the rolling pin or board)
Thank you cornstarch...(and now back to cleaning up the pieces I made and getting them in the kiln!)
