As you can see, it is obvious why I call them "pie crust mugs"! The forming technique is: Roll out the slab. Stretch plastic wrap over it. Press the cookie-cutter down onto it (I press it down with a wooden bat to get even pressure). Remove the extra, place tissues under the wings (so they will fall freely) and invert the plaster form in the center. Flip the board and glue the overlaps using slip and pressure.
