The forms are wood so to make them last for thousands of uses make sure you let them dry in between each use. The timing of making them and removing the form from the slab is very similar to plaster. If left on too long your clay will crack, the wood will mold or start to get soft. Mold can easily be washed off with dish soap and if edges get rough you can use sand paper to smooth them.
What are the forms made of?
The forms are made from fiber board. This is a type of wood that makes them last for thousands of uses, but make sure you let them dry in between each use. The timing of making them and removing the slab from the form is very similar to plaster. If left on too long your clay will crack, and the wood will mold or start to get soft. Mold can easily be washed off with dish soap and if edges get rough you can use sand paper to smooth them.
The cut and beveled fiberboard makes them durable and economical. Easy to use over and over again, giving you a tool to create your personalized shallow objects. The forms are designed to be shallow so they are more versatile.

MKM Pottery Tools, LLC was established in 2003 by Rick McKinney. The initial set of tools sold by MKM, such as the MKM Decorating Disk, the MKM Throwing Tools, and the various types of ribs, were tools that Rick had developed in his studio for his own personal use, and were not available for sale elsewhere. But it was the Decorating Disk (a sort of universal pottery template) that really launched the business. Rick thought it was a good idea, but didn’t have the ability to screenprint or work with acrylic sheets. So he had a bunch made up thinking he would sell what he didn’t need. Ten years later, Rick is still selling his Decorating Disk, and many other tools, as well.
