The slump mold is a great way to make bowls without using a pottery wheel or using the pinch-pot method. The molds are super super easy to make and well worth the time.

Step 1: Materials neeeded

You will need:
Pottery plaster. It HAS to be ceramic grade, otherwise it will dissolve in water very easily. (please wear a NIOSH mask when working with dry plaster. Avoidance of lung cancer is so very worth it...), 
A non-important bucket,  
The objects you want to make the mold from (must be flexible plastic, unless you want to cut it up to get your mold out),  
A scoop,  
A spray bottle of vinegar (not pictured),  
A scale,  
Something to stir your plaster with.

What do you do with this?<br />
