Ceramiques like.


As promised (yes I'm sure you've all been waiting with baited breath) here's a photo of the fun i've been having at home with my mum's underglazes and some scruffy old tiles. Not just idle doodling though, these are tests for a plate project tying in with the old Marie and Pierre book- yes learning must never cease; there is no escape, even while you eat! Ha ha ha ha. I believe the blue and white ones are working best out of this lot, however I've got some more awaiting firing with different colour combos- I was advised to put some colour in for the kids- does anyone have any thoughts on the matter? Eh, eh?

lindsay these are great!!! my favourites are croissant and pierre. i wanted to do some plates! but i don't think i have time left, so perhaps i'll do it after graduation...

you can print onto some ceramic transfer paper that will water slide onto your tiles. i tried something similar onto teapots and cups and whatnot last year. i think the one with the snadwich is very nice indeed. dx.

i think the blue ones work best as tiles but it depends what the plates are like... more traditional ones would look good all blue but the more colourful ones would attract kids i think... it depends who you're aiming at. love them grimey, might have to purchase one myself!

i also think the two blue ones work better as they have the decorative element which frames the drawing.. this is good for ornamental items i think :)
