Week 3 at Glazed Creations took us to looking at masking areas out. The project this week was an owl plate. The photographs below show the steps we took to complete the project.
Pip gave us a cute owl to cut out.
We stuck it in place ready for the first coat of glaze.
In between waiting for each coat of glaze to dry I added wording to the rim of the plate.
I removed the owl template using a pin and took care not to chip the glaze.
The next step was painting the rim of the plate on the wheel. This was a scary step as it was the first time I had tried this.
Once this was dry I painted in the details of the owl using various brushes for different effects and removed the lettering.
This is the finished result ready for firing.
