Sig and Stain
Test tiles are out of the bisque, I have put some black iron oxide wash on them and they will go back in for an 04 firing. They are chrome oxide, red iron oxide, cobalt carbonate, copper carbonate and rutile colored terra sigs and washes. I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible so I don't end up spending a ton of $$ on colors I may not use. Once I figure all of these colors out I may move on to a mason stain, but really I have all the color I could possibly need right now here with these.
I may add more stains to these like the test below, but first I want to see how this one comes out. It was a little house that wasn't very well built so I used it for a test tile. I sort of like the two above just simple, but we'll see.....
My friend Charlotte suggested I make some house pendants, so I did.....great for test tiles too!
Gerry has been shooting Nascar all weekend and Wes has had band rehearsal so I got a lot done around here. Firing an 04 tomorrow, happy week everyone!
