Has been a busy day!
Here is a lesson using titan buff mixed with the paint palette
Notice how it softens the hue and gives it a grungy effect at the same time
Here is the sign crew...Craig's brother Billy in the plaid and Jack in the blue coat just arrived today
JR is hidden in the middle and his buddy Keaton
Doing a fine job hanging the sign
Here it is hung...it shrank some but it is still visible enough from the road as they pass by...I am standing in the road to take the picture.
Fuse update...everyone arrived at the same time and it was coincidentally the same moments apparently the glass was readiest to sag
I over sag the piece...if the ripple isn't too top heavy it will make an excellent tub
otherwise not so much it will be too tippy a tip jug...we shall see
it has to anneal 5 hours then tomorrow when it is totally cool I can open the kiln
another huge problem with an over sag is the possibility it won't come off the mold...
we shall see...
fingers crossed it isn't too out of proportion and it lifts off the prop...
thanks for dropping by
