  1. Wondering how to do this brushwork

    I'm surprised no one mentioned china paints.... If the second piece looks like the detail is on top of the glaze, it is probably china paints. They are applied after the glaze is fired and then refired to about cone 016. Check the directions on the china paints if you try it. Here's a website that sells supplies. http://www.marylandchina.com/index.php/china-painting-supplies.html Try searching on YouTube or Google for China Painting techniques... Good Luck!
  2. Pot Decoration Trials On Computer

    Very interersted in how they turn out. Being a computer geek and ceramicist, myself, the only issue I can see is that the outline on the computer is done with a "crayon/chalk" texture that may be difficult to replicate when painting on the ceramic piece. I love the texture though and am curious to see how the lines compare with the digital prototypes. Good luck!
  3. This is an interesting question as ceramics is still changing.... I attended a Mayco Knowledge Workshop last summer where we used underglaze (true underglaze, not their Stroke & Coat) on cone 04 low-fired bisque and then immediately applied their clear glaze on top without firing first. We then fired once to cone 06. The piece came out beautiful with no crazing, shimmering, pealing, cracking, etc. Mayco has reformulated their underglazes to allow it to be applied to bisque and clear glazed over before firing. It's truly amazing in my opinion. Mayco is doing a top notch job at innovating! Keep in mind, this only applies to Mayco underglaze that I know of...

  7. The new year!

    My new years resolution is to revamp my garage which is my workspace. The one car garage has never had a car in it and is a storage disaster! I'm going to purchase new shelving and epoxy the floor with income tax money this year!
  8. I received a portable 16x16 light box with lights and camera stand for photographing my ceramic works! Charged my camera batteries and will be snapping away this weekend.
  9. Input on Combined Class

    Plan the first class well. Make sure you cover wedging and other basics so that is not repeated later in the class or overlooked all together.
  10. I adore Skutt kilns. My opinion is that they have the easiest digital controllers to use and extremely reliable. They also have a computer linq and a next option that will text your cell to let you know when the kiln is finished. Haven't tried it or looked at price, but sounds awesome. Call it my dream kiln..... my two cents worth has been deposited....
  11. Oh dear. I have always liked the +/- buttons, but hitting the right one while reading on my iPad is more challenging than I thought. I meant to plus one your post, but minused instead! I don't see a way to fix it. Eek! Now I think I'm the one that has opened up a new can of worms with this post.... Ruh-Roh... ( thinking about the last post about those buttons. Wasn't pretty....) I'm glad you and Martha like my avatar, it says a bit about me in multiple ways and I like the artistic quality of it.
  12. I didn't mean to do that...just that it is nice to get a sense of who is out there. I always liked your zebras! Marcia No worties, Marcia. Just feeling a little silly and was joking. I think it would be great if everyone would have an avatars/photo.. Mabe it's all the holiday sugar making my ornery? Lol.
  13. I have always liked your zebras avatar.

  14. Ooooh, Marcia, I'm gonna tell! You opened a huge ole can of worms! LOL. Hugs to all!
  15. Can't Find this product

    I ordered and have received a case of the small ones, 6x6. They are just what they look like, nice and flat. I'm looking forward to making some creative wall hangings with them and maybe teaching a class. They are low fire. I'm a huge fan of Mayco products as all of it is very reliable and well tested. Let me know if you have any questions... I plan on doing some Majolica stamping with the Mayco stamps and Stroke & Coat on them and then use their new product, SG-501 Sculpting Medium with a stencil on top to create a modern kind of look. http://www.maycocolors.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1120&Itemid=71 http://www.maycocolors.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=mayco_flypage.tpl&product_id=9468&category_id=73&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=4
