Fairwell, Chicken Wing.

Goodbye, chicken wing mold #01. After multiple tries of casting, experimenting with different time of leaving the slip in the mold... it still would not easily come out as one piece.

Time to admit defeat.

After some not so serious CSI of the mold and the ripped pieces of clay chicken wing. We labeled the fragile points and where slight undercut exists. see image below.

undercuts + fragile points = fail.

This will not be our last attempt. We learned a lot and will definitely try different things soon... perhaps a drumstick?
