How do I fire lace figurines?

Holes in lace or fabric which appear after firing

Holes in lace or fabric which appear after firing, can be avoided by first washing fabric thoroughly before dipping into slip. Apply enough slip to the fabric so the clay will be strong enough to hold its own weight. The fabric must burn out before the clay matures, leaving only the clay shell.
