I'm in the process of testing some new underglazes for Hallowe'en use on some mugs I made a couple of weeks ago. This underglaze is suitable for greenware (clay that's been dried out but not fired) which will help keep the edges of my designs from looking smudged from doing both color and clear coat in the same step. I just have to be very, very careful about handling anything in this state, as greenware is super-fragile at that stage. One wrong bump and it's crumble city! I'm also looking to see how the orange turns out, as I've never used this one before. It may well turn out to be too bright, in which case, I need to search for another one I can apply to greenware. I'm not ready to start making my own quite yet, as that involves testing the glaze for stability and other things, which is a time-consuming process. Maybe this winter I can get to that! I like making cups. The problem is actually selling cups, as one of the things I hear from customers over and over again is, "Oh, I have plenty of cups!" or "I have way too many cups!" I'm hoping that thematic cups like this may change their minds. Any thoughts, peeps?
Born in the wilds of Los Angeles, The Mistress of Mayhem/ShellHawk was later educated at Miskatonic University, where she double-majored in Home Economics and Spell-Casting/Potions. She is currently enjoying a quiet life with her vulture, Ralph, and her third husband, who seems to have a strong resistance to iocaine powder, unlike the last two. She is thought by many to be nearly human.
