You know I'm thinking what you're thinking so I don't even have to type it do I?

Let me know if you want some help glazin'. Oh, think of the possibilities when you put your "heads" together.

WOW Go Tiki! I want one of those FOM mugs! Those are WAY cool!

Thanks for the encouragement everybody. Much like carving, I really don't know what I'm doing here, but it's FUN!

Here are the Moai Generals leading their respective divisions to the final fiery glaze of glory. I know it's all just chemistry (and old hat to those who've done this before), but it's interesting to me how the pre-fire glazes look SO different from what they'll look like after firing,

Left to right is: Royal Purple, Teal Tweed, Caramel, and Sand Bar. Keep your fingers crossed that these colors are what I actually get!

Love this stuff, great test color choices. Really want to see what they look like after the burn. They never come out exactly like the little test chips - it depends on heat, bumpiness and how thick you put it on. (We still can't find a bright red that works.)

Excellent job, you get A++++++.

Great color choices! I'm so glad you are doing a couple different ones.

I look forward to seeing how they look done.

Well, it's been a while and a lot has happened with these guys. Long story short, it's been determined that they were not fired hot enough or long enough in the first (bisque) firing to get all the moisture out. As a result, steam and moisture erupts the glaze as it's melting causing glaze-craters and burst bubbles. Highly unattractive! All were affected, to greater or lesser degrees. We tried a second glaze firing to see if it would settle out; some improved, some got worse. I'm very disappointed with the results, but may try again before long. I've been considering buying my own kiln so I'll have only myself to blame for mistakes like this in the future. Just don't know if this is really something I have the time and money for.
