In Topic: How Do You "mark" Your Pot?

Today, 08:21 AM

I made a bisque stamp of my signature. signed a block of plaster, pushed clay into the carving and bisque the clay. Make several, one will work better than the others.  Do the carving of the plaster with dental tools .  You can try the carving out as you work on it, just keep tweeking until it gives a clean line.  works great.  I did this outside the studio, to keep plaster dust from creeping into other things.

In Topic: Selling Your Items To Stores

Do they want the items to have their logo on them?  If so, has to be wholesale, bought outright, because you can't do anything else with them if they don't sell.

Also, design needs to be agreed on BEFORE you make them unless it's an item you already sell somewhere else.  You don't want to make 2 dozen of something and take it in and have the store want to purchase 8 of their favorites and leave you holding the rest.

Yes, I do.  I use Mid South's Opulence enviro-colors because I don't have a recipe that gives their great satin feel. 

Also Amaco's Fake ash series, Pompeian, I think they call it.
