Sigh..... Black Clay Results


I did a post last month about  working with black clay the picture above is from some pieces in the bisque stage. Below  are the results after the glaze firing.  Will let the pictures do the talking.  What do you think?  I think they look prettier in the bisque stage..... darn!  Luckily I only glazed half so I will play with the other half and other glazes, but will not expect much.  Have a great Friday!





This little heart was listed on my etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/73550966

your textures are lovely..you might experiment with bisking then rubbing in underglazes that are mixed with a tiny bit of wide range clear glaze..just a little spoonful of underglaze and a drop or two of glaze to vitrify..if the glaze can handle it underfire just a bit will give a more brown tone than the strong black..

I actually like them quite a bit! If I wasn't already working with three clay bodies I would love to try that one.
