looking great! such talent!
I have decided not to use an underglaze for the lettering. I will do this after it has fired. I am not going to take a chance on something I could not fix if I slipped. I have a tangerine mason stain on the vest, and have used more iron oxide to even out the coat. So I will be putting Sandy in the kiln tomorrow. Cross your fingers, almost done. Sorry it is taking so long.
I had it penciled in, but didn't like it and erased. I will use lettering brushes after this firing. AFter that I will get it in the mail. Will post a final.
cameras are so distorting on small sculptures...shoot they are distorting on large and I don't know why.
Sandy's looking great!!! Can't wait to see the final look!
Sending good kiln vibes. I love her!
Thanks to Elly Biggerstaff from the clay guild for sharing her orange mason stain and her knowledge that a third firing would fix the iron oxide issue. All I have left is the lettering and Sandy will be on her way to Texas. If I ever get on top of things I want to do this again, there are many things I would do differently but I think Sandy is going to be a successful sculpture. Fingers crossed for a smooth shipping.
Ah, I LOVE her Jess and JaNa will be beside themselves.
I LOVE it! It looks so gorgeous!
oh I just love the look on Sandy--a very pleased pup!
Oh, smkie, she's beautiful!!! I can't wait to see her in person! Thank you again. You've done a wonderful job with her!
sorry it is taking so long. DO you want me to ship during the Christmas rush or wait until right after?
Amazing! Beautiful! You're incredibly artistic. I'd have a hard time parting with that fella.
