Hi Clayarters,
I have just completed a series of pots as a memorial to the"Great
Ice Storm of 1998". Now I am ready to glaze them. In my minds eye I
can see these pots with ice crystals all over the trees, which are in
relief on my pots. How do I do this. Some thoughts-- should I use
Titanium nitrate painted on the trees or luster them in some way? I
want to use my very safe Bristol gaze which is a smooth satin matt. I
use MCS porcelain from Tucker's. Any suggestions or ideas whould be
greatly appreciated. Thankyou in advance. Lynn
