I am a beginning potter and as a result, my creations often get ahead of my experience, especially where glaze is concerned. This past week, I made a tile and on it I placed a tree I formed from twisted pieces of clay. I was very pleased with it until I realized that I had no idea how to glaze it. After much consideration, I decided to glaze the tree with a dark color, rub off most of it (with dark glaze staying in the creases), and then glaze all of it (tree and background) the same lighter color.
However, in the future, were I to want to glaze the sky and tree in two different colors, what would be the best sequence of events and materials to use?
What concerned me the most was that no matter whether I chose to glaze the tree or the background first, I couldn't see how to avoid contaminating the other space.
Thanks for any and all suggestions and ideas!
