My instructor at our local Community College uses brushes that are used for painting onto nails. You know, the nail art craze? She is a phenomenal artist but her lines are so--o thin and even. These brushes are embarrassing affordable .

Hola Folks,


Been Making bonsai pots for a decade. I make mostly unglazed, stoneware brown, electric fired stuff, I guess youd say utilitarian pots.


I have been admiring the very decorative porcelian pots coming out of Japan.


So I have been trying brushwork, on bisque. Looks like amateur hour. The best Ive done is in my avatar.





Any ideas as to how this work below is accomplished ?


And where do you get those amazing brushes that do such a fine line?

A friend and I just made a trip to Highwater Clay in Asheville, NC and she purchased a liner brush that has a reservoir to hold the colorant so it can do a lot before running out. Much more than just a liner brush. She does a lot of very fine-line decoration on her pieces. When she tried it out, she said it was the best brush she had ever used for this purpose. http://www.highwater...upright_145.jpg
