Daaaang! Those are really striking! I'd totally make earrings out of the small skull ones...

If you get a cheapie plastic generic mask (like they sell at Halloween) and use a bit of PAM (cooking spray) on it, you can use that as a slump or hump-type mold to build on. Or, you can plug up the eyes with some clay, pour plaster into the plastic mask and have a more resilient kind of mold. You can also use plaster bandages to make a mask of your own face and build on that (though it won't be too strong and probably won't last long). Remember, keep plaster out of your clay though!

I like it! It has a very '70's vibe to it. (I grew up in the '70's--yes I'm OLD Smiley--and had an owl pin very similar to this!)

Man, coiling is an advanced technique, I think! Good job!
26  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Day of the Dead Style Pottery on: February 05, 2010 07:20:59 PM

Here's some of my new carved work from the electric kiln. Any comments or critiques are welcome! TIA!

This is a bowl, probably 10 inches in diameter (?), carved and glazed. The white glaze went a bit transparent in spots over red clay, so I'm going to try painting with a white underglaze before using a white glaze on top.

This is a plate, about the size of a small dinner plate, also carved and glazed. I was experimenting with layering glazes on the skull. Not sure how I like the effect. This one is kinda creepy in person!

This last bowl is not Day of the Dead, but a bowhead whale.

I used a cone six transparent glaze that went a bit milky.

I'm still experimenting with glazes, especially commercial glazes, so if you have any glaze suggestions, I'd be thrilled to hear them! I'd be happy to provide you with the names of the glazes (they're all commercial glazes) if anyone's interested!

Hi, Hippie9! Thanks for your comment! For now, it's just kinda sitting around. I wasn't thinking about installing it anywhere when I made it, I was just playing around with some clay... Smiley
