Check out the video at the bottom of this page to learn how to create this project!
- Begin with a properly fired bisque. Use a damp sponge to remove any dust.
- Using the tape, build a wall around the canvas to trap the paints from pouring off the side.
- Fill pouring cup with SC-15 Tuxedo, SC-16 Cotton Tail, SC-11 Blue Yoder, SC-26 Green Thumb, and SC-6 Sunkissed.
- Begin pouring the glazes over the canvas and move the pouring cup around to fill the canvas.
- Using the mister bottle, mist the areas that are empty of glazes then tilt to fill all the way to the edge of the canvas.
- Remove one side of tape and mist the edge to help the glaze fall as you tilt to cover the edge with glaze. You can use a Xiem brush to help full in the edges. Continue with the same technique on the other edges pulling the tape off one edge at a time.
- Fire to cone 05.
- You can use Stroke & Coat or Foundations
- You have to thin Stroke & Coat by 15% (15 mL – 100 mL)
- Foundations is already thin enough to produce nearly identically results
- Can use small plastic cups and layer glaze inside the cup instead of using pre-made pouring cups
- If you are using hand built pieces, you will need to leave space for gases to escape
- You can glaze the piece before you pour so there is glaze already there incase you miss a spot
- Higher firing temperatures tend to burn out the colors
- Spraying the sides while the tape is still intact helps with flowing glaze over the side
- The longer you stay in one area pouring glaze the finer the lines you’ll get
- If you have small empty gaps you can mist them or use a brush and dab the glaze to fill the spot
- This technique can be done on greenware to shorten the firing process
- Choosing monochromatic, analogous or other compatible color combinations will keep from creating muddy neutrals in your pour
- It takes just under 4 ounces of glaze to cover an 8″x10” clay canvas (use this when deciding how much glaze you will need)
- Do not force dry. It will cause cracks
- You can twice fire pieces to correct issues if necessary
