How to use a mould?

A quick how-to on how to work with a mould.
There are numerous ways, I'm just showing you mine... :)
My apologies for the bad quality of the pictures, I was too lazy to get the tripod out... :(
Put some clay between two liners and roll it flat.
Cut the piece in two and press it into the mould. Cut away the edges.Make the edges rough with a spiked spatula.Put some clay pulp on the rough edges and close the mould.After about 20 minutes open the mould and take the feeling out.Smoothen the surfaces and put an airhole in the bottom before firing.Tada: the feeling is now ready to become a REAL feeling.
What will this one be? To be continued...
Feel free to let me know how you feel, it might become one of the 99 feelings...
