That is a nice red. Can we see what the red looks like with glaze over it ? Do you have a test tile ? then we can tell you what we think you should do.
Ahhh..no test tile Helen. Admittedly, I am a little lazy about making them, first because at the moment, I'm too impatient to wait for the bisque firing and glaze firing when I have pots to decorate and secondly because it seems I choose to fly by the seat of my pants in hopes that everything turns out fine!...so far so good...or at the very least, nothing too horrid has come of this method. One day, I will make test tiles. I did however see the test tile of this red when I purchased it and from what I remember, it stays a lovely bright red even at cone 6!! So..here's hoping!
Also, like we never do gauge swatches when we're knitting.
We are very very bad people Snowy!
I really like the red even without the second firing. Can't wait to see them complete.
HI Brenda:These are great. I think a clear glaze will be good for the "food" areas...but not necessarily needed on the handles...does your clay stay this bright white when glaze fired? These are really stunning!Barb at Alchemy of clay
Thanks for the nice compliments! I am considering that Barb. Not sure how much they'll be used anyway but IF they will be, then of course I'll want them to be food safe.
I like the idea of glazing the inside too...I like them so much. I think I want one in which to serve olives!
The spoons or the scoop?
These look so fun, I love them Brenda,
Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment! :)
