White rabbit to you all. I am greeted this morning with snow. Just a lite dusting so far. We stocked up on supplies so we'll stay home till it melts. I have plenty to do around here.
Everything in the bisque turned out fine, so I'll be glazing the next few days. I can't believe the thin strips of clay on the tall cat sculpture didn't fall off. I'd like to spray glaze the cat since I don't have enough glaze to dip the whole piece and I don't want to hand brush all those crevices. I didn't sand the rooster bank before the bisque because I was afraid I'd break it. What do you use to sand greenware, a dremmel tool? I also have the rooster and dog headed jars I fired separately and am wondering again the best way to deal with those.
Rather than pen and ink, I decided to work with the acrylic paints I already have. A bit incongruous to see a sunflower this time of year but the bright colors do cheer up ones attitude. I'm practicing on something called canvas paper in an eight by ten inch size. The colors are flat but I'm reading about painting with acrylic paint in several books I've checked out of the library. This morning I can see I have more shading to do to bring out more details. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
