Holiday Creations Art Elements Blog Hop
About the time I figured out the topic for this month’s Artwork Features blog site hop: Holiday break Creations, I was preparing to make a established of kitty cat themed ornaments for a tree for our aging cat. We have a new glassed in entrance porch and believed it would be a best way to decorate it for the Holiday seasons. And for ceramic ornaments, it would be protected from the factors.
For the previous couple several years we have been possessing an outdoor tree as an alternative on one particular within. We have it out on the deck and beautify it with brightly coloured netted chicken treats. It is so enjoyment observing the birds flutter all over the tree and peck at these “dwelling baked” goodies of birdseed and peanut butter. So this 12 months we have 2 Christmas trees.
For our kitty cat tree, I used cat formed cutters to slice out the decorations.
They seemed quite huge at 1st but my clay shrinks about 11 % so they seemed a great deal much better as soon as they have been bisque fired.
I utilised two strategies to provide my cat decorations to lifetime. For some I silk screened on cat drawings (Mayco silkscreens) bisqued them and then extra colour
and for some others I did some drawing into the clay. They dried definitely immediately so by the time I received to them to scratch in some strains, the incisions have been not incredibly deep. To increase them I used a black underglaze and then wiped it off, bisque fired them
and then hand painted on glazes and fired those people to cone 5 ( previously mentioned 2100 levels F)
Eventually I decorated the tree.
