Thanks for popping in. Been playing in the Pottalot Studio pretty much all day. It’s been a learning day. Figuring things out, so I can decorate the virgin batch which came out of the kin last weekend!
First thing I did was mix up hugs batches of glaze in big buckets. Just whites and clears. They have to sit for a day now, so tomorrow I can crack on with glazing. I did paint some Botz ready mixed glazes on a few, but I want to dip a few, and you need a bucketful to do that!
Decided to work on some tiles too. Used a few of our Stencils. In a word :
B r i l l i a n t ! Look at the detail!!
Here’s another one….
Absolutely perfect. Like cheat’s sgraffito!! Hahahaha! The last time I was called a cheat was when we developed the Groovi System! And the time before that was when I came up a completely transparent stamp!
I’m on a mission now, to refine this tile work. Exciting, innit.
In the meantime, I embedded another little stencil in two other tiles, just to see how it would work like a quasi stamp. Carefully pressed it into the wet tile with a brayer – then lift. Bingo!
Now I am going to investigate oxides, and figure out a way to make this etching pop. There’ll be a simple solution. I think oxides may be the solution. More will be revealed.
So there we have it: 4 experiments….
What a glorious way to spend a day. I get lost in it for hours. Didn’t go near the wheel – there‘s so much more to pottery than throwing.
Let me show you where these stencils are, just in case you like them:
There are 3 in the set, but you can get them separately too. I used the Doodleology Square Waves Stencil:
Here are the floral flourish frameless stencils. They come large and small.
The above stencils work brilliantly in our papercraft world too. Especially with the brushes or the Gelpress plates. Splendid.
Hope your day has gone well too.
Time to go in and cuddle a couple of kittens x
