Here's how the copper carbonate stain came out on the ornaments, dark brown/black and not so appealing. I mixed copper carbonate with frit. I didn't get a very even coverage either. Any ideas about that? I glazed them anyway, we shall see how they turn out with glaze over the top.
All is not lost however, because I think this stain would much better on a different piece of pottery like one of my stacked towers. It has an ancient sepia tone look to it.
The other day I drove past a yard sale and stopped and picked up two cookie presses. I hope to use them as a clay extruder. Four dollars for both, not bad. The glaze load is almost ready to unload so stay tuned for some photos real soon. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
