How long do I leave the slip in the mold?

Pouring Molds

Leave slip in the mold until the side wall shows a thickness between a quarter and a nickle. Depending on the size of the doll parts, any thinner may cause collapse. The larger pieces need to be a little thicker. Here in New England it takes about 5 minutes, in Florida it was more like 10 minutes. The larger pieces need to be a little thicher.
