The artful eye of @kleinreid -ceramic design duo James Klein and David Reid- captures the unexpected beauty of their glazing process in this repost. Having respect for every part of the ceramic process, even if it’s not your favorite part, always shows in the finished piece. Glazing: love it or hate it? - @btothebth
What are the biggest problems you have when painting? Today as I oil painted my way through another ellipse (Day twelve), another issue came to light.
It's the use of paper towel to clean brushes and palette knife. I'm aiming to reduce my carbon footprint and limit my use of plastics and chemicals. I'll write more on that if your interested, later... 🤔 So while I was thinking about the biggest problems when painting, it wasn't about the how to, but the products we use. We have bags of rags ready to out to recycle so my ahha moment today was why not use and reuse this rag instead of paper towel? ✔️ Both products use an enormous amount of water to produce. Instead of a single use disposable paper towel, I'm using cotton rag, again and again untill it's so stiff with paint it's time to select a new peice. 🗑️😊 Maybe this is something you would like to try. 🔔📝 I'm really interested to hear from you about your biggest painting problems. Happy Days Karol
Not all skulls fire equally! I know it's part of the learning curve and I am sure it's something I am doing wrong (possibly heating up to fast) but it's interesting how some of the skulls crack more than others. And on this one the turbinates survive 1800+ degrees and yet the cranium cracked! The cracks will still be interesting once I put a glaze on it though 😁
