Porcelain Elephant Painted with Sand & Clear Glaze.
I fired the porcelain to cone 6 or 1222 C or 2232 F.
I then mixed low fire ceramic clear glaze with aquarium sand. I didn't wash it.
I made it thin enough to be able to paint 2 coats with a fan brush and fired to .06. (999 C or 1830 F) Then I painted Hanovia's Liquid Bright Palladium and fired to .017. I left the tusks with just the clear glaze and Palladium and got a nice contrast.

Love your elephant and especially like your technique. That technique would look so nice to frame a painting.

Thank you for posting this. I love the effect especially the contrast with the tusks. We spent a few years in Africa so I really enjoy artwork related to elephants.
