Music Notes(2)

The pieces for my minimurals are very thin.That is no problem because I add them to a plate of plywood or blue foam,when fired.Only there is a problem when the pieces are bone dry.To avoid breaking ,I place them when they are leatherhard on a kiln shelf.
I also glaze the piece raw on the kiln shelf;that is a precision job and any excess glaze on the kiln shelf must be removed with a wet brush and a tissue.I use a glaze glue(or wallpaper glue) to make the glaze an easy to brush on glaze.When dry, I place the piece with the kiln shelf into the kiln,so I don't have to touch the fragile piece anymore.
