Its colored glass tiles fused to a clear glass tile right?  I love the way your "grout"  looks.
You have a larger kiln then?
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: What sort of paint to use? on: September 14, 2013 07:13:08 PM
Since you want your wood and lines to show through, I would use a stain then cover with varnish.  If you use straight acrylics they are not really transparent enough.  I would use watercolors VERY sparingly because it will bleed into the wood.  The best thing (I think) to do would be to outline your skull in a masking fluid.  Then use a transparent medium (you can find this in the paint section) mixed with a teeny bit of acrylic.  Go heavy on the medium...You can always build up acrylics.  The other(more lengthy drying but fabulous) option I might try would be nail polish!  It comes in great colors-including high gloss transparent and is very affordable.  I would try it on your wood first just to see how it reacts (some nail polishes may seem to "bleed" an oily substance around the edge.
I cant wait to see what you've done

I love your extra bling in the drops and the neck chain part. I have yet to make this one but may give it a whirl more that I've seen it.
