Hyn Patty Posted May 2, 2022 Report Share Posted May 2, 2022 So, I do a lot of fine art equine ceramics. As I await the arrival of a few more pieces of equipment and supplies to fire up my mold making and casting of my own sculpture this summer, I am custom glazing some other artist's sculptures as custom orders for clients from all over the world. I thought some of you here might be curious what I do for a living. This first piece is very much in progress so I'll add more photos as he nears completion. This is a small earthenware sculpture called 'Hadrian'. This mini was sculpted as a Dales Pony by Sarah Rose and produced in earthenware bisque by Pour Horse Pottery. Some of the pieces were custom glazed at that pottery, some were produced in an original finish edition, and some were sold unglazed. I got a few of these in unglazed bisque. He stands about 3 inches tall or slightly less. The first photo I am attaching is the bisque with raw underglaze airbrushed on. Here I am using soft tools to remove some of the underglaze to add dappling to the palomino coat pattern. The white markings were masked with latex then removed and cleaned up using an exacto type craft knife. oldlady, LeeU, Rae Reich and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
