I compress the rim with a chamois, and give one light pull with no water, using my fingernails rather than fingertips (this step can be skipped if you’re using regular plastic clay). Oops, see last pic in previous post below for the rim compress step.
I shape the rim, then brush some water on the inside and outside, and quickly give a single pull to shape the cup. I use a gyubera on the inside for this step. That’s it, done. Cut off the wheel and trim.
