Last time I told you about this form of Ted's I'm going to "embellish".
Sometimes I like to actually plan things ahead of time before I plunge right in. So I ended up thinking of a grade school project I really enjoyed.
Remember when you colored a piece of paper with all different, random colors, then covered it in black, and scratched a picture through it? I loved that project.
So here I'm going to do it, only a bit more controlled. My first step is to cover the piece in underglaze (three coats of each color). That's what I did yesterday. Today I'll paint a black pattern over it, letting the color come through in an interesting pattern.
I'm going to call this "Rainbow Roll" when I'm finished. And I think you'll see why when I'm done.
Occasionally you should step outside your comfort zone. It can lead you in new and interesting directions. I'll send another picture tomorrow.
