What the world needs now is color and fun, well at least I do. So I've been using my markers and pencils and drawing and coloring mod plates. I think I can easily adapt the drawings to cups and bowls.
Last post I mentioned I ordered some mason stains. While I'm waiting for them I'm drawing rough sketches and coloring them in to see how they will look before I mix up the stains to use. Some of them will have a background color, but I didn't want to take the time to color them in.
I think a few of the designs are too busy and some need to be edited. I might switch some of the colors, but I think they live up to being cheerful and it's fun to color them. Now I have to see if I can create them in clay. Perhaps I could make a stencil for the designs and paint the stains that way. Wonder if that has been done before. What do you think?
