detail of glaze merging...


More fun in drawing with glaze pencil, then waxing the dragon and dipping in shiny green glaze. Charles (BMCA clay teacher) thought I should have wiped the glaze off the dragon completely (though he was painted with clear glaze to make it food safe.  What do you think?

  1. Personally I have had some very unhappy results with glaze on wax resist. The wax seems to make the glaze move in unexpected ways. Of course, I work at ^04 so you may have different results.

    Toes crossed for success.

    1. Nope, same problems at cone 6. Charles says it's because the wax melts at 100 or so degrees, thus making the glaze flow with gravity at that point. I don't mind using resist as long as I can get all the glaze off the surface of it so there isn't that flow thing happening. Thanks for toes crossed! I can use all the help I can get!
