Our Puggle is named Chloe. She's the sweetest dog I've ever had. She follows me around the house and keeps me company till the youngest kid gets home. At 7 she is really slowing down. For exercise she moves from the sofa to the foot of the bed. Her internal clock has her on the porch every afternoon as the kids get home. Every day she makes us laugh. And her best job is keeping my feet warm in the winter.

I would start with the book by John Britt. I will look up some other titles for you soon. Not home now.

I believe there are several youtube videos showing this technique. One thing I remember seeing was the clay was mistted with water before the image was applied.

Old lady,

I think I was the only one to check out the pottery books too. I have bought a huge number of books. It amazes me how poorly some are wtitten, making a difficult topic more confusing. Now I am finding a shortage of more advanced pottery books, not that I need them yet. Hoping in the new year to be able to take a class again.

I didn't create this glaze. It is actually three glazes, two of them I adjusted slightly. If it wasn't so time consuming I would post more photos from this firing. Maybe later in the week.

Thanks for your kind words.

Old lady,

No. I have been using the same wax, out of the same bag, for over a year. I use soy wax. Far as I can tell it has no order when burning. I even heated some up to boiling. Apparently the flags point is 450 degrees and my skillet doesn't get that hot.
