Where are they hiding? I found another fish whistle! This one is in a white ^04 clay. I'll be once firing it, using Spectrum Majolica White #799. This is a glaze that works very well on raw clay.
When I am brushing glazes I always put some in a separate container and add food coloring or anything that will burn out. It is much easier to tell where I have brushed glaze if it is contrasting with the previous coat. On bisqued clay I use three layers on green ware I use four.
The lower photo shows the whistle itself. As I've said before, I like the whistle to be a part of the fish or other animal. Next I am going to do ocarinas and flutes.
I find From Mud To Music by Barry Hall an invaluable resource. Has anyone tried water whistles?
My camera is doing some very strange things. I think it's something to do with the shutter. I have a feeling it's going to be an expensive fix.
Finally after days of dull, gray clouds the sun has come out. It still feels cool for July!
Enjoy the day and, as always, thanks for stopping by...............*s*
