In Topic: Slip Transfer Help For Leather Hard Work

16 August 2013 - 12:28 PM

I learned a technique from Ro Mead where you apply the slip to fabric, wait for it to set up just right ... then gently press it onto the surface. The success depends on waiting for the right moment ... Too soon you just get squished messes ... Too late it cracks. We used old cotton bed sheets which tend to wick off excess moisture at an even rate. We drew our patterns on the reverse ... they showed up through the fabric so we could easily apply slip. Just wash and reuse.

Chris,

I wonder if a similar technique could have been used with glaze on bisque in the Calico Glazed Mystery I posted a few days back?

Good that you kept a stock of clean bed sheets for new work, or for attending KKK meetings.

What if the four glazes were poured, brushed, and commingled into abstract pattern on waxed paper and then the pot slowly rolled through?  Would that not be quicker and easier to manage than using resist on vertical surfaces?  I've not tried it, but only throwing the idea out to the group to kibitz.  The photo gives a rough idea of how it could be done.

Oh yes, Wayne Higby.

 I forgot about his work, with his wonderful landscapes.

There is some resemblance:

The poured suggestions with brushed fill-in sounds about right, but there has to be a trick yet to be discovered.

When holding the pice in hand Chris' suggestion of skill and lots of experience ring true.

Thank you very much guys for the comments.

Pugaboo,

The suggestions on my thread are leaning hard on waxing over the poured glazes?

I think you would get more ideas if you could share the imagery you have in your head for your piece with a drawing.

Just lay the sketch down and shoot it with you digicam , or phone.

Good luck.
