MARLO – If you read the blog post, it will tell you that the letters are made out of pasta. Most grocery stores carry it, as well as some dollar stores. We press it in when the pot is still a damp leatherhard. You can carefully pull them out, or we frequently just leave the pasta letters in the clay and let them burn out during the bisque firing.
