Glazing

8 Jul

I finally got around to bisque firing some items and painting them with glaze. I’m using very pale peach and red hues for the faces, and most of the frosty white powder glaze will melt into clear glass, hopefully. I’m starting to really like using mid-fire stoneware clay, then using low heat like cone 04 for the second firing. I know it’s sort of like cheating, but it opens up a whole world of low-fire glazes. And since it’s just decorative stuff, who cares?
