Yes, have tried it on both low and mid fire pieces.
Very nice effects, from dark, metallic to copper green blush where the wire =
melted and fused with the glaze, esp. white glaze.
Make a ridge in the clay, place the wire into ridge, wrap around pot, twist=
fasten ends together.
Let 'er rip.
Should be nice.
May drip, depending on the gage of wire used, but nice, anyway.
Let us all know what happens.
Pam, in raining like mad Seattle. Almost all the gorgeous leaves are =
down, my husband is thrilled to have his daily raking and blowing assignment
(self imposed) almost at an end.
