I ordered this from Axner last fall when I was ordering clocks. I have never worked with underglazes but this looked interesting. There are four different thickness tips which self thread onto the plastic bottle tip. The tips are numbered by lines around them. The sizes are fairly obvious upon looking closely.
Below are my first experiments on paper. I smeared the #4 a little which is something to watch out for. The main thing is to shake the bottle well and avoid air bubbles, which cause spitting and smearing. I found that tapping the bottle hard gets rid of any bubbles.
Now I need to make some test pieces so I can experiment on the real stuff
I'm not sure when or where I will use this, but it does raise interesting possibilities!
It's still cold out; the temp is 26 F at 2:00 PM this is about the warmest it will get today. Even though we are in a warm wood heated house the weather seems to beg for things like bread and soups. These are two of the spinach pies I made for supper last night. They were stuffed with spinach, chicken pesto sausage, mushroom, onions and cheddar cheese. I should have take a picture of one after it was cut, but we ate them too quickly!
This is a Friendly sitting in my suitcase when I was unpacking it. She seems to have made up her mind that I am not going anywhere for a while. She normally sleeps on my bed at night. Since I came home she has been following me around. If I move a suitcase or a tote bag, she gives me the kitty-stink-eye! I guess I've learned my place!
Has anyone noticed that the days are getting noticeably longer? I watched the sun go down at 5:00 PM, a far cry from the dark of the solstice!
I hope everyone is staying warm and comfy. It's supposed to go up to 40 F this week end. We'll see, grasshopper..........we'll see.
As always, thanks for stopping by.........*s*
