Step 4--The Kiln Lid

Using the marker, trace around the edge of the garbage can lid and cut out with the utillity knife. Turn the lid upside down and carefully tuck the fiber round into the bottom side of the lid

The fiber will be held in place by either handmade ceramic buttons with High Temperature kiln wire or by buttons cut out of insulating fiber board. I choose the fiber board because I had heard that the ceramic buttons tend to break after repeated firings.

A picture of my fiber buttons will be posted in the next step.
