Brown slip paint, sgrafitto; glaed with Buttercream (inside and handle)
The slip, which I put on in many layers, came out really well. The sgrafitto is pretty successful, too, especially given the tool I was using (and that the cup was bone dry at the time). The glaze was really disappointing. Once again, the buttercream (inside and handle) barely shows at all. I made this for Amy Ariel, though she doesn't know it.
Red and green slip paint, some sgrafitto, plain glaze
The shape of this bowl is very nice, but it's a little heavy. The center of the very bottom of the bowl is quite thin. I do not like how the red, pink, and natural clay color look together. I give the decorating on this bowl a C-.
The BC was very disappointing here, doing little more than adding a slight shine to the brown of the clay. I also poured some AB into the center, and tried to give it an uneven shape around the bottom of the bowl. It looks really nice in there and the AB over the BC on the outside is sparkly and looks great.
The buttercream in this case came out disappointingly thin. Not the effect I was hoping for. Also, I tried to glaze just the handle with AB, but accidentally got a bunch on the side of the mug as well. At first, I was very disappointed in how the glaze came out, but it's kinda growing on me.
