October Kiln Carving Pattern

Kiln Carving patter with Zombies

October’s kiln carving pattern is sheer fun.  Zombies are always a source of entertainment around here, from the informal competition to tell the WORST zombie joke ever to mock brain eating’s.  I’ve taken it one step further and designed a kiln carving just for Zombie Lovers.

This is a medium difficulty pattern that does take some care with the details.

Step 1

Step 2

Cut a piece of fiber paper large enough to accommodate the entire pattern.  Tack securely through both layers on a razor proof surface (I use a sheet of cardboard).

Step 3

Carefully cut and remove gray areas.  This is best done with a brand new razor or X-acto knife blade.  Fiber paper will dull your blade quickly!

Cut around outer border

Step 5

Cut glass to fit, clean and fire using a full fuse schedule.

If you cut very carefully, you can use the removed gray area to make a reverse kiln carving and have TWO sets of zombies for the same effort.  Zombies aren’t known for working hard, so take advantage of this two-for-one thing!
