Finished up these pendants today and got the houses out of firing number three. All good, no casualties! They are off to their new homes at the NC Craft Gallery and the Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh. I will be sad to see them go, I have grown rather fond of them, they have been around here it seems like forever!
Michael Mahan asked about black oxide at ^04 and here it is, above, brushed on and wiped off below brushed on and very lightly wiped. This is on Campbells brick red. The stain holds up pretty well and I like the look a lot although it should be for decorative only, I think that eventually with a lot of washings the oxide will wear off. The chrome oxide was rubbing off of the tile so I'll just use the chrome terra sig which is really nice and then if Iwant it more aged, I'll put some black oxide over it. I like the looks of the tile below a lot.
