The plaques have just had the lettering outlined so that I can scrape out the clay between the letters to give an engraved appearance of the letters,( rather like the slate plaques you can buy.) I will post some more pictures when I have done this and the plaques have dried a bit.
|I have drawn the hens and pig into the clay with a scratchy tool and built up with relief around the bodies. I will fill the lines with oxide so they stand out more and spray with clear glaze to stop the surface becoming weathered.|
|These foxes are a new project I am working on and I am quite excited about them as they are functional and will be used as hooks and can be mounted on the wall or backs of doors. I have also made use of my print blocks to decorate the backs.|
|I will post more pictures when these have a coat of glaze on them.|
