5 pounds of clay for about a 12 -14" plate.

how strange that on the day im looking for bats to throw plates on you post this. do you think the p&s system is best? any trouble with the plaster? tried wonderbat? thank you ahead of time!

John Britt said...

I have used Wonderbats and plasi-bats and wood bats and the cement. I like this the best (for plates) because you can make as many as you want. I use the square plastibats for every day stuff.

thank you! i want it for plates only. i use versa bat otherwise and feels it is pretty good. inserts are slightly inconsistent but you get used to this. i think ill go with p&s.

Thanks so much for posting this! I bought the molds for this bat system last year, but still haven't gotten around to making them yet. Now that I see what lovely plates you can make with these, I'm gonna have to get off my butt and try it out!
