Cheese trays - in process

 And no, that doesn't make any processed cheese!
I thought they are rather large for cheese cutting...perhaps some fruit or crackers would also be spread around on these trays.  Here they are bisqued, with just a bit of bend from true flat where handles are.  I was amazed they didn't crack or bend more as large thin slabs are wont to do.

The rather normal shaped one is now waiting to be in a glaze kiln-load.

I just got some shots of my process of painting geraniums on the strange shaped one. I used 3 Stroke & Coat colors, and 3 Designer Liner colors (all by Mayco).

After painting all the color images, I then put a coat of matte clear over them all, and then wax them with a liquid wax.  That way I can next pour any glaze over the whole surface and won't interfere with all that painting.  I'll also wax the edges and back so there won't be glaze on those surfaces either.

I hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. That is absolutely beautiful. looking forward to the glazed edition!

  2. Pretty!
    Thanks for sharing your process.

  3. The "strange shaped" one is my favorite!

  4. wow, those geraniums are wonderful, finger's crossed

  5. I think they are the perfect size. I always serve several different cheeses and fruit as well so I much prefer the larger ones. Beautiful.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
