i made this mug for a craft swap.
i admired cinnamon teal's sgraffito goldfish bowls and wanted to play around with the technique as its not one i have really used much. i layered white then blue then black glazes then scraped the design using a sgraffito tool and a craft knife





close up of the coaster showing the blue glaze



really pleased with how this turned out Smiley

Maxxev, I hope you realize that if I was anywhere near you, I would probably right now be sitting in front of your, staring adoringly at you as I bask in your brilliance (or trying to sneak out your latest creation under my jacket).  I saw this and knew even before looking at the topic that you made it, and I love it.  BTW, I look at my beautiful Death plate everyday, as it is hung right across from my work table.  Pinning this to the many other pins I have of your stuff.

Those are beautiful! I had to look up what sgraffito was, but I think I get it. And I think birches are an excellent subject for that style, well done.

Wow - those are gorgeous! What perfect birch trees! The technique looks a little bit like using etching paper, yes?
Could you link a project of Cinnamon Teal, please? I'm not familiar with her work.

yes, or scratch board though you can layer more than two colours.
her goldfish bowls are one of my favourites: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426925.0#ixzz2dGhv44LQ&i

Thanks so much for the link. Cheesy She is an amazing potter. She does such beautiful shapes.

And you are right about her goldfish bowls - they are stunning. But your birch trees are still my favourite!

(Sorry I didn't comment earlier. I had technical issues for a while, then life happened, and I couldn't get it resolved until last night. It was a wonderful surprise to come back and see your gorgeous mug and coaster!)
