also horribly inspired by robotarsonist's gorgeous work seen here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284893.0

i took my longtime love of ants and spiders and my complete dysfunction with actually making a ceramic plate and voila...i used plates from goodwill and the fantastic ceramic pen, Porcelain 150 to make my very own ant and spider plates.  this is my first time using a ceramic pen so be gentle.
here they are:



















i hope you dig them like i do...

That looks great! I got a porcelaine marker a while ago and just now found the opportunity to use it but the flow is very uneven! Did you have that same problem? Your images look so smooth and fluid...gah wish I knew what was going wrong. Great job though!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Love the ant plates.  Hate the spider plates, but that's just because I hate spiders.  Beyond my hate of spiders, you did a great job on them.

Love the Pebeo glass and ceramic paints.  I only recent started using the pens; have used the paint pots for years, but love love love the precision of the paint pens.

thanks for all of the comments!

sheepblue: yep, they clog pretty consistently if you stop drawing at all. i had to keep wiping the tip and pushing down firmly on some paper towels to unclog them. i think it might just be an occupational hazard with these pens!
