If you've been following my blog you know I've gone a bit ga ga over slip.

On Thursday I took out my unused jar of Sky Blue Mason Stain and mixed it with the bottom of two days' worth of throwing sludge (otherwise known as "slip"). Some of the result now sits on mugs that have been sgraffitoed or had dragon's eye sprigs scattered over the painted slip band.

They now sit on the bisque firing shelf for the first stage of their transformation into functional pieces. I promise to post photos of them when they're done.

For now, I'll post a photo of my first dragon's eye mug (which I'm affectionately dubbing the "nipple mug").

I've been trying mason stains recently too. Anxious to see how yours turn out, love the sgraffito, that's next on my list.
