Whenever I want to do some straightforward illustrating I dig out one of the tiles I keep on hand. They are glazed with who-knows-what, probably Spectrum #799 Majolica White.
I use Mason stains, mostly mixed with frit #3124, sometimes with gerstley borate added to give a denser color. I will fire at ^05.
I have been looking at a lot of Mucha lately, so you don’t have to look far for the inspiration.
This is not quite finished but I wanted to get a photo before I loaded the kiln. Yes I am going to do a firing soon.
Toes crossed that all my northern hemisphere friends are enjoying a terrific summer. I am enjoying tea by the fish pond in the mornings. It is such a relief to not have caterpillars crunching and crapping everything in sight.
As always, thanks for stopping by.......*s*
