If you recall, a couple of weeks ago I was working on whiskey bottles for a show. Sadly they didn’t get glaze-fired in time to get into the show. Happily, though, they both came out of the firing looking great.
Bottle # 1
The bottle came out exactly as I wanted. I do wish I had put one more coat of glaze on, but even with the relatively thin glaze, I like it. the design you see on there was penciled in and then meticulously colored in with a small brush. Glazing the set took me about 3 hours.
Glazes used: Mayco Burnished Steel and Duncan Clear+Mayco Copper Adventurine mix.
I used a giffin grip to glaze this bottle. As you can see, there is a nice clean edge between the green and black, and it’s easiest to accomplish this kind of thing with a giffin grip.
Glazes used: Mayco Tidal Pool and Duncan Outer Space
