The moulds worked!!

Thankfully all the moulds were successful!!!  Here they are being filled with porcelain slip.  I am having a few problems with the spoon cast because the stem of the spoon is so thin and it clogs before enough slip can fill the mould.   However after much thought and scratching of heads, the solution came in the form of one of my kids plastic medicine syringes... injection moulding at its basic level.  Now I can fill the moulds I've just got to get the unpacking of the spoon right, I've broken them all so far!!  Why do I love spoons so much?!  There is always tomorrow..........
