Hearts and leaves and a Dipsy dragon for mother’s day!

I’ve used Amaco Potter’s choice glazes on my oak leaves and hearts and on a new Dipsy Dragon. The clay is briar buff earth/stoneware B106 from Potterycrafts.

The leaves have a Dark green base coat (3 coats) with plain Dark green on the underside. I’ve used Art Deco Green, Oatmeal, Arctic Blue, Seaweed and Ironstone as top coats.

They have Deep firebrick on the underside and around the edge with Arctic blue as a base coat inside (3 coats) and Chun plum over. 3 star bowls and one heart bowl had oxide on the edges. These are now painted all over blue rutile and chun plum over with extra chum plum around the edge on the inside.

4 heart bowls were previosly glazed with the terracotta stoneware glazes over oxide on the edges and spotted. I have painted over these with blue rutile and one of Oatmeal, Arctic blue, Indigo float or Iron Lustre over.
