Hi
I have a small pottery studio and have a student who wants to decorate their ware using bubbles blown through a straw. I would imagine you would add a little soapy water to a small amount of coloured (very runny) slip - then blow air through it with a straw to agitate the surface and place your bisque over those bubbles -
Has anyone tried this - do you have a link to a site I could follow
or do you have any suggestions?
Regards
Terry

I saw this today and supposed it was for someone who is only interested in decorative ware. Inform your student that ware like this is not to be used for food or drink nor to handled but should be sat upon a shelf away from being handled. It is one of the newer layering choices for Amaco's Potter's Choice Glazes.

Sorry I didn't realize that you meant the 'rings' that the bubbles leave behind, I thought you meant actual bubbles.

Thank you so much
its exactly what my student wanted
I would imagine a flat surface would work best.
Loved both links - thank you.
