Like Thomas Edison must have said; "I think I'll try this....", and that's just what we've been doing.
In between tearing down the fall displays and putting up some Christmas decor, I moved my pewter collection to my blue stepback cupboard. It was originally on our fireplace mantle, but I needed to free that up for our stockings display. So, here is my experiment.
The next experiment was mixing up our new glaze carmel, with our robin's egg blue on this mug. Bob doesn't care for it so much, but I kinda like it, and we have a lot of customers that like "dipped" pieces, (meaning using a base glaze and dipping it into another).
I really am loving this new carmel glaze that he made. It is a very nice, matte glaze, so it is more primitive, with barely any shine to it. I can't wait till we get more pieces finished. We did 'experiment' it on some prim stars, and we know it's certainly a keeper!
*It's hard to get a close-up of these stars, but they are a beautiful light carmel color with tons of black specks...quite prim.
*I'm also really loving these napkin rings!
