Plaster Bowl for reclaiming throw slurry - Pottery Studio Tip

I have been thinking about making a plaster slurry bowl for a long time and today was the day.  

I used a wide plastic bowl that I bought at Walmart and a hump mold bowl form that I bought at bigceramicstore.com.  I used about 3 gallons of mixed pottery plaster.
Here is the plaster hump mold.  It came out really smooth and nice.
Here is the bottom of the plaster slurry bowl.   The bottom of the molds came out really nice and smooth.
The inside of the bowl came out with quite a few tiny air pits.   I need to figure a way to smooth it out..  Stay tuned!
