Ceramic II

So after giving my vase a shape and engraving some design, i took it to my university and fired it. It took me two days to finish firing the vase and then I used black slip to make my design appear. It looked very messy and ugly because all the teeny tiny scratches that I had on the clay was standing out because of the black slip.

So here is my vase in its 2nd stage.  Those light black lines are made by black slip and the dark thick black lines are made by smooch tap Konfused no i think its called scotch tap or pin tap or something.

Now is the toughest part, painting the vase. Again the paint is a bit different, i have to use slips again to paint it and you can’t exactly tell what colour it is gona turn out until you fire again. So far i have done 2 sides with 1 colour.
