I've been doing a lot of glaze decoration this week. These are tests of a new batch of glaze that I used to use a lot. Kona-F4 is no longer being mined; Minspar 200 seems to be an acceptable and successful substitutions. We'll see, grasshopper.....we'll see. Oh, the glaze is named Andrea Gill's WOM; I got it from Walter Ostrom when I did a workshop with him many years ago. I size the glaze with super strength hair spray. It makes the glaze hard enough to work on but I can get the glaze itself to move if I want it to. The designs are some of the standard ones I use. When I'm testing a glaze I like to keep the stuff I know as consistent as possible.
It will be interesting to see how these turn out. I plan on keeping them for our own use. They're an oval sandwich size which I find useful for more than sandwiches.
Next I start testing Linda Arbuckles's Majolica.
A first for me: I am posting this at Mud Colony and Artists in Blogland. Thanks to Linda for her links which led me there.
It's a sunny low humidity day.....hope everyone else can find a way to enjoy the day .
Thanks for stopping by..............*s*
