stick pots

Yesterday's stick insect sketches made their way onto pots today;


I started with a light sketch in brown underglaze pencil, then one or 2 layers of dark brown underglaze and a bit of shadow with the pencil again. I haven't used either of these products to stoneware before, so I don't know how the colour will fire, especially under a glaze - they may just fade and burn out.

    they're such delicate little designs but with so much character!

  2. If you are using ceramic underglaze pencils it should fire to stoneware OK. I find the blue and black are nice strong colours to S/W but the yellow and red fire out. Great drawings.
