Amaco Chalks?

03 February 2015 - 05:45 AM

Hi all,



I hope someone can help with this. I came across  some work by a potter who said she used chalks over slip to draw on bisque. I can't remember her name but her work was beautiful. Im trying o find these chalks myself, does anyone have any experience of using them and any other info about them. I have tried the crayons which were useless as was the pencils. I cant find them in my usual supplier (Ireland) or the UK. Thanks Julia

Mason Stains As A Wash

15 September 2014 - 02:24 AM

Hi, I'm looking for some advice I want to add a bit more texture/ depth to my work. I wanted to pick out detail in a blue wash and wonder can I use mason stains to do this? I usually colour with slips, can I use these over the stain or will they obscure the stain. Thanks so much , Julia
