(final entry)

 

I am very very happy with the finished result. There are eyes on the back and it was hanging on the wall while still warm!

 
To finish I used an iron oxide wash, sponged off. My shirt was done with a thin cobalt oxide wash.
A clear glaze was poured over the entire piece. Sprinkles of my bowl full of dry glaze scrapes were added around the background.

Apparently I am not yet done with this Hidden Mask Selfie. I've pressed the deliberately broken pieces into a white stoneware and will apply underglazes and fire to bisque before going to the next step, which is going to be some external embellishment.
