Studio Time: Second Glaze-Firing
Got these out of the kiln yesterday morning.
The good news?
-they look less like Kiefer-Schroeder-Host knock-offs post-firing
-I like the crayola colors
-the giant bowl didn't crack
The bad news?
-they're boring as all hell
-I obviously did not put the same number of coats of slip on the Navajo Wheel pieces so they look incongruent and goofy as all hell
-a couple pieces actually did crack
-my Laguna glazes disappeared on the test pieces
So- back to the drawing board, wherever that thing is.
Does anyone have experience firing Laguna mid-range glazes to ^6? I got a couple of matte glazes to try out, but I think taking them to ^6 defeated the matte quality and the color. What do you all think?
Also does anyone have experience with enamels? Like, how do they work exactly?
