  2. Interesting how the medium directs your technique. I like the semi abstract aspect of the pictures. Have you tried un-glazed tiles? Almost every city has a craftshop that sells ceramic in biscuit form for decoration prior to glazing. Could be an interesting progression. Tony

    • That’s a good idea Tony! Although it was difficult, the glazed surface did allow the paint to pool in a way that it wouldn’t have on bisque-ware… which really helped create the look of wet watercolor. It would still be a worthwhile experiment though! I had planned on trying something similar when I was a ceramics student, but never got the chance. I’ll look next time I’m at a craft store. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Silly me – you already know about ceramics, probably better than I! I had a phase of painting onto denim directly (old jeans) and found the oil-based paint ran in the fibres, so wet the fabric first and found it stopped the paint running. I wonder if experimenting with something similar, perhaps with fine oil on the absorbent unglazed ceramic might make a difference. I shall watch your future posts with interest! Tony.

    • That’s really interesting that you wet the denim and that prevented running! Man, it’s so great to experiment and discover unexpected things. I will keep this in mind for sure…. Thanks for keeping in touch! ~Lisa
