I decided not to use wax resist on the birds because I was afraid I'd drop some on the pot below, which would resist the glaze. I poured glaze on the interior and let it run out on the opposite side of the birds. This worked quite well. After glazing these handled baskets I carefully hand brushed a different glaze on the birds with a very small brush and used an even smaller brush for their eyes. At one point Gary came in the garage and said I needed to put some bird droppings on the pots. Gary has a strange sense of humor.
