Well I obviously have no problem announcing my identity ^^^ see upper left corner, but now I've read about all the bad things that can happen on the interweb if someone uses their real identity, I will be going by Jane Doh from now on :)  and as far as the challenge goes, well I'm hard at work on a life size sculpture of Superman. Hopefully I won't have a problem with shrinkage ;)

In Topic: Purple Haze, Opps No Glaze

nobody will get an answer since the title is not spelled correctly for a future search.  i think the intention was 'Purple Glaze" and so nobody will know to look for purple haze.

Actually Purple Haze was a play on words.  Perhaps you remember Jimmy Hendrix  Anyways, yes I did find a commercial glaze (bought it in dry form) and will be using it next week to finish up the project.  I would like to thank all those that took the time to respond here and point me in the direction of commercial glazes.  I will let you all know how things turn out.

I believe David Orser is a master of this form.  I have three of his pieces that I absolutely covet.  I use two for salt and pepper cellars, and one for jewelry.  I went out to a studio sale at his home a few years ago and struggled to choose the few I could afford from the myriad of choices he had in stock at the time.  He was generous with his time and showed us through his studios and explained his work in process.  When this shape is done well it is ah-mazing!

Apply 3 coats of glaze with a brush.



No, seriously!  I can't dip it or spray it???

Thank you all.  It had actually not occurred to me to use a commercial glaze.  I've never used on before but for this one project it is most likely the very best solution.  Also, thanks for the link, the grape should work out great.




Have  you looked at commercial glazes, I had a similar request for orange cups oxidation C6 food safe.  I found 3 different ones, picked my favorite they came out perfect.    Denice




A friend gave me some of this and, on white clay, its . . . well, purple.
