I've been painting ceramics for approx 20 years. Some of my favorite pieces are roosters and large decorative steins. Painting details in greenwear is my favorite.
Anyone have the same hobby?

I am sorry ....slip is a mixture you buy to make ceramics with. It is already ready to be mixed up and pour into the molds of what you are making. It settles a little and if it is old you may have to add a little water. It sets in the mold usually overnight and you remove it and let it dry for at least three days and then you clean it and fire it to the proper temperature to get to the bisque stage. Then you clean it. (take all the rough edges off and smooth it and wipe down to remove dust particles). Then you decide dry brush or glaze. I like dry brush. My friends liked glaze. Then you paint it with the proper paints . If you chose glaze it has to be fired again. If you dry brush you just apply paints in dry brush style and you are finished. Spray it with sealer and wa la. you are totally done and have a piece made from slip to paint. yeah. tmi more than you wanted to know lol.shirleyt

LOL It's great Shirley!! Thanks

My son did a lot of ceramics in high school. His teacher said he was the best she had seen in a very long time. I should show you some of his stuff sometime.

Okay, so on your profile page, in the box for "Signature appearing below your posts", type in the following:

[ url=http://cubits.org/wannabeanartistbad/]visit me at Beginners At Art.[ /url]

BUT leave out the space after the brackets ( the '[' character).

To do this: Use your mouse to highlight the three lines I typed above. Right-click, and choose copy from the menu that pops up. Then go to your profile edit page, and remove anything that is already in your "Signature appearing below your posts" box. Then right click (with your mouse) in the now empty box, and select Paste from the menu that pops up. Remove the two extra spaces from the third line (the 2nd character and the 76th character) and save your new profile.

Where are the pictures of the roosters. We all want to see your work. It is fun to see what everyone is doing. Maybe we would get inspired to do something again too. shirley
