In Topic: Terracotta Clay Is So Messy ----

the difference is in the wrinkles in my skin.  red goes deep and stays there until forced to leave.  the white is there but gives up more easily.  what gets on the surfaces of the studio is much more work if it is red iron oxide based. :angry:

this is intentional crackle where the artist wants it.  if he found a way to do that more power to him. :D

they would be better with drainage.  try some holes that will drain into the slab tray that is a little larger than the boxes.  selling them together will make the whole thing more professional looking.  make sure the tray height will allow some of the water to drain but not run over the edge of the tray.  an inch or so, don't forget shrinkage works vertically, too.

used red iron oxide in a glaze this weekend.  used it last because of the mess.  needed three towels, two after i had washed my hands and arms with Dawn.  the red did not leave until i shampooed my hair.  red brown clay is fun, just messy...............
