I got a glaze kiln loaded with all the tests and experiments my classes and I did this week. I'm excited to see the results of this firing on Tuesday. I'm hoping my owl rattle and underglaze bowl turn out.
I tested some of those free underglazes on a little bird sculpture from a class demo. It has like 20 different colors on it! I'm really pleased with the range of colors in that set, though. I was worried that they were too old and dried out, but a little water and stirring and they were just fine.
I don't know what I'm doing with that little closed form house. It has more copper stain on it, but I haven't fired it yet. Debating whether to paint it now with underglazes, or wait and just glaze it. Hmmm. I think I was daydreaming of having a house of our own some day when I doodled on it. What I wouldn't give for a little cottage home and corner of space to work in!
