For me ,Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.

In Topic: Wipe-Away Black Staining

Great ideas mentioned above.But whenever i  choose to apply Mishima during the leather hard state(greenware).

 

Also once you have painted the piece with one coat of the underglazeor slip,let it air dry back to a dry leather hard state before moving on to the other step of wiping your surface.If you wipe your pot too soon after applying the underglaze there will be lot of streaking of underglaze .Also double check that your H2O is clean,if not change the water and try wiping,again.

 

If there is still streaking once you have wiped your piece and you are concerned,let the piece be bone dry.Then sand the surface gently with a green kitchen scrub such as "Scotch Brite pad".(Be safe and wear a dust mask).

In Topic: Qotw: Is Your Artistic Practice A Product Of Genetics Or The Environment?

Cant imagine anyone in my family took to arts ,farfar away none into art world..coming from family of engineers,doctors, art seemed beyond expectations...still took to my stride.

 

I suppose the imaginative words inculcated during childhood(Schooldays)dived me into artistic world....
