You can make a clay slumping mold. Just fire the clay as high as you can or at least 1500. This will be higher than your slumping temp. The clay wont be as hard as it could become at a high temp. firing but it should last you a while. Just try not to bang it around on things.

Graphite tools are used in flame working glass. I know they don’t like being stuck directly in the flame and will crack. I haven’t heard anything about using it in a kiln. Could be some new high-tech thing.

I don’t know about the microwave kilns but I’m assuming you use kiln wash. Smooth the dry kiln wash with some old panty hose.

There was a tutorial on this at the Dick Blick web site but I don’t if it is still there some where under teaching. I wasn’t too successful with it. My plant would turn out part white part black. The trick is not to do a full fuse. If you fuse it too much you will end up with a really big air bubble.
