Too bad we can't get together and give each other lessons!

I had to snap a glow stick to see how the effect was gonna look, I like it

Mad Dog, you are a creative genius! Now all we need is a recipe for a neon green drink to go in it!

I've been enjoying all the updates and terrific alien art pieces. My clay design didn't work out. When I finished it Dan and Tiki Hula announced that I'd made a snail needing to be named Slow Poke. So I'm going to start over and this year I'll do a painting.
Once I start I'll post my updates.

This has turned into a really fun swap. I like seeing all the outer space ideas. MadDogMike and Tiki Ano your ceramics look great.

I'll have to work hard to come up with a painting to meet the standards shown on this thread.

Good job everyone. Wendy

Wendy, can't wait to see your painting! There's (still) lots of time until the end of July...

Tu, I agree with Mike, I can paint a wall, but that's about it.

Mike, the glow stick looks awesome. Can't wait to see a pic with a little bit of light so we can see the mug after it's glazed WITH the glowing from the stick. Love this idea.

I'm so in awe of all the great art for this swap. Also scared and not of Aliens. Here's what I've done so far.

I saw this perfect photo on Professor G's facebook page. The colors just screamed USE ME!


I started with one color on my canvas.


Next I added the second.


I used a brush to semi blend them.


To add texture to the planets surface I used my finger to tap the paint.


All done.


Now it was time to work on the sky.


Oops, I forgot to turn it over.


One step at a time, Wendy

Love that sky technique Wendy, very cool!

EDIT - Whoops, that's the planet colors. I flipped it for you.

Ready for one of at least two more trips to the kiln


Wonder what color that gray glaze on the Kane will turn into

Wendy, I love where this is going....

Mike, I also love your option/ input as to where Wendy is going...

Mike, your piece looks awesome! I didn't notice the planetary object on the non-Kane side- holy cow! Dig it.

MadDogMike you always go the extra mile. That's so cool.
Tiki Ano you and Mike are the clay artists this time and that makes you two very special.

I'll try to keep up with all the paint artists who are doing such a great job.

This is always such a fun event. Wendy

PS thanks MDM for flipping it,

I chose an antique gold glaze for Alien Kane. Hard to see in the photo but it is a metallic glaze, looks like gold plated. This is Western's Aztec Gold and not a gold overglaze (which contains actual gold), not quite as shiny but gold overglaze is $840/ounce and Aztec gold is less than a buck an ounce Aztec gold fires best at Cone 05 which is a bit of an unusual temp for glaze firing, most lowfire glazes fire at Cone 06

The green that you see is clear glaze covering the chartruese underglaze. I fired the gold first so it will be easy to remove the clear that spilled over trying to glaze all the nooks and crannies behind the Kane
