I have been experimenting with trailing glaze in squeeze bottles and painting on with fine paintbrushes. I feel like there has got to be a better way to do what I am attempting to do. With the small brush I literally have to dab it on and re apply to the brush as the glaze dries on the bristles too fast. The squeeze bottle is almost too large of a hole for the glaze, I feel like i don't have that much control.
I have seen some people used needle tip bottles- do these work well?
What kind of brushes do you use for small/delicate designs?
Any other advice?
The vulture pot is done using a trail squeeze bottle- as you can see it pooled up in some places. I had to work very fast. I used wax resist over the design and then brushed on the tenmoku.
The Poppy Utensil holder is applied using a paint brush.. it was a pain in the ass to do. I just brushed clear glaze over the design. It was one of the last pieces I plan to make in white stoneware clay body.
Maybe describe how you would have gone about creating these designs? Thank you!!
