Of Love & Hate; Hearts at odds.

Alternative surface options.
Whilst processing the manufacture and delivery of transfers, I decided to experiment with some alternative surface options. I decided to apply an old technique used on vases 10 years ago. Sgrafitto, using Amaco under-glaze Velvet colours, incised and fired to vitrified temperatures. The three rats above are painted in brown and black Amaco - the brown rat in the middle already fired (vitrified), whilst the two rats below have been incised, drying to be fired. I will then apply gold transfers to the vitrified surface.

Alternative surfaces - incising through under glaze colours.
