The &*^%! wasps are kind enough to leave me a few of these every winter hanging around the eaves, mailbox, etc. One is about 4" across, the other about 2", open honeycomb shape.
I can only fire at cone 5-6. Trying to decide which color/s of slip to use; I've got white porcelain, a BC white type, a groggy dark brown, speckled buff and a black-black cassius. Not sure what they'll be: object d'art, broken up first for jewelry focals, applied to a wall-hung tile or pots?
Any suggestions on how to retain as much detail as possible yet get the slip to fill all the spaces and coat them nicely?
Should I use one thicker coat or multiple coats? Still not sure if I'm leaving them whole or trimming them into jewelry-size pieces. I'd like to do this in future with vegetable things from nature with a papery, burnable quality so it should be an interesting experiment.
