In Topic: Terra Sigillata Flaking Off

Today, 08:18 PM

Thanks for the help…..after reading the comments, I think I may have applied it too thick, layer-wise.  I put the terra sig on bone dry pieces and recently someone told me to just keep adding layers until the terra sig took a while to soak in, then buff it.  This last firing was the first time I had applied it that way….I usually apply only two or three coats, then buff.  Will go back to my old way of doing it.  

 

No one mentioned putting terra sig on bisque pieces ….. has anyone tried it?

If you do decide to use a stamp, I've ordered stamps from Endless Mountain Clay Tools…..I ordered stock stamps, not custom made, although she does them also.  Great customer service.  The stamps I received were wonderful.

Amazing how being in my studio lets me put everything else aside for a while.  As does working in my flower beds, and, like Amy, fishing.  Those three activities have a very therapeutic calming effect.  Several years ago, when my husband was battling cancer (a battle he lost), he could tell when I needed a break and he'd say "go outside and pull weeds"…….the furthest thing from my mind.  But, I'd go, and after pulling weeds with gusto, I could come back inside with a whole different outlook.  I don't know how folks without those kind of escapes cope.


In Topic: My Angelbun's Urn

I think making an urn for your sweet bunnie is wonderful.  One of my pastimes is walking through cemeteries and taking pictures of unusual stones.  I came across this one several years ago.  What about finishing your sculpture using bronze powder?  I have done several sculptures, bisqued them, then used the bronze powder method of finishing them.  It is actual bronze so the finished result looks like a bronze sculpture.  Takes a bit of elbow grease to polish, but the result is worth it.

I have ordered wooden stamps and Tyvek stencils from Endless Mountain Clay Tools and was pleased with them.  I haven't made a custom order yet, but plan to.  http://endlessmounta...s.bigcartel.com
