Mayco Foundations in Action...

 I made these test tiles on 20G Earthenware Clay using
Mayco Stroke 'n Coat with their Foundations.

I first put on 3 coats of the green glaze colors allowing
each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next coat...

Then I use a fine tipped bottle to apply the black lines
using Mayco Foundations black on top of the green glazes.

Wild Grape Vines & Leaves Plate

When I formed this 9" round shallow stoneware dish, 
I placed stringing holes around the top edge
so I could attach found objects to the rim... 

After it was bisque fired, I used black wax resist and glazes
to draw in these random leaves...

Once glaze fired I brought it home from the studio
and within days, received a package from Florida
containing these wild grape vines...

The rest, as they say, is history!
