For about a dollar a bat!

The Quick-release Plaster Mold System allows you to make your own plaster bats easily and economically. With these unique molds you can make both flat and domed plaster bats, each keyed for fast, secure, and perfectly centered wheelhead mounting.

The smaller Quick-release disk is attached to your wheelhead with your bat pins. The larger half is used to cast the triangular impression in the back of your bats. The resulting keyed bat simply drops onto this disk for a centered bat that doesn't wear and doesn't wobble. Use the flat bats to throw any form. The domed bats provide a smart, time-saving way to throw bowls, lids and plates complete. The foot ring or lid knob is formed at the same time - trimming is eliminated, cutting your work time in half! Finally, a cost-effective and hassle-free way to create uniform dinner sets.

Available in 9 popular shapes and a variety of sizes, each plastic form features tapered walls which allow you to vary the depth of your mold simply by adding more or less plaster.

Each form is reversible and will create both a slump and a hump mold depending on which side of the form you fill.

These are easy to use drape molds that are indispensable to the potter interested in producing consistent, professional slab forms.
