The claybody custom Clyde (#15 in the "Marshall" series) is finally done and happily home with his new owner!
You saw him in-process in this post in late August. He took a bit longer to finish than I had hoped, thankfully his owner was very patient with me! Though not dramatically different in the final look than previous work, he is the first piece in which I relied on overglaze enamels to layer colors over an underglaze base color. Many thanks to Karen Gerhardt for her inspiration and help in adding overglazes to my tool kit.
Here's another project in which underglazes and overglazes were used. This is #9 in the "Tuesday" series:
Just about every technique I've learned through the years came into play with this piece: airbrushed underglaze, hand painted underglaze, air eraser, typewriter eraser, hand etching hair-by-hair, overglaze... pretty crazy! This wild child already has a great new home. :-) I'm looking forward to pushing the limits of these techniques even more with new projects this winter!
