In Topic: Wondering how to do this brushwork

15 April 2013 - 08:49 AM

I'm surprised no one mentioned china paints.... If the second piece looks like the detail is on top of the glaze, it is probably china paints. They are applied after the glaze is fired and then refired to about cone 016. Check the directions on the china paints if you try it. Here's a website that sells supplies. http://www.marylandc...g-supplies.html
Try searching on YouTube or Google for China Painting techniques...

Good Luck!

In Topic: Pot Decoration Trials On Computer

Very interersted in how they turn out. Being a computer geek and ceramicist, myself, the only issue I can see is that the outline on the computer is done with a "crayon/chalk" texture that may be difficult to replicate when painting on the ceramic piece. I love the texture though and am curious to see how the lines compare with the digital prototypes. Good luck!

In Topic: Underglazes should be applied when?

08 March 2013 - 08:18 AM

This is an interesting question as ceramics is still changing.... I attended a Mayco Knowledge Workshop last summer where we used underglaze (true underglaze, not their Stroke & Coat) on cone 04 low-fired bisque and then immediately applied their clear glaze on top without firing first. We then fired once to cone 06. The piece came out beautiful with no crazing, shimmering, pealing, cracking, etc. Mayco has reformulated their underglazes to allow it to be applied to bisque and clear glazed over before firing. It's truly amazing in my opinion. Mayco is doing a top notch job at innovating! Keep in mind, this only applies to Mayco underglaze that I know of...
