In Topic: Dry Glaze

Babs: the one I was talking about was very matt indeed. John thinks that the artist used really dry (powder) glaze and that IMO is a bit dangerous for the lungs!


Irene: thank you muches for the link! The one in your post is passing me to an error page. When I google Simon Fraser I also get an error page. How did you guys get to her Website? I would be very interested in this artist. Thank you once again!


Neil: thank you for all the interesting information. If I try matt glaze/dry glaze, it would be on a non-functional piece!


The artist I saw that piece in Dublin is Gloria Carrasco of Mexico. I converted the picture and I hope you can see it now.


Thanks again for all your help!

Beautiful and stunning results Marcia! Congratulations.


I once used a flour mixture with grain/wheat in it but to no obvious result. Any flour will do! Obvara is great fun!!

Thank you bsiskepottery for the link! Will have a look if this helps.


Neil: I don't know whether it was only matt glaze. It looked a lot like velvet. But it was matt, yes.


Hey John, how are you doing? Yes, beautiful work in the exhibition. Maybe you saw the piece I'am talking about: it was mounted on the last pilaster in the room in direction of the coffee room, to the right. It looks like a big round wavy collar. It is possible that the Lady who did it used the second technique you describe. Awwww, let me find a picture of the piece or else the name of the artist. Will be back soon...


Thank you all for answering!




PS: I couldn't download the picture, so John, I'll send it to you by email. I hope that's ok with you. Thank you!
