Yes I can't wait to get playing with my clay but things keep cropping up, Marci you are right it's about total expression, and as you know i want to break boundaries or at the least combine different media, I have been thinking about clay and silver a lot while packing those boxes.

Marci . . . those pieces are lovely. So unique and shiny and quite beautiful.
So when you put the lustre on the glazed porcelain, you leave tiny gaps between the colours? That's what it looks like on the pic. And the lustre looks as though it has been thinned down a bit so it is soft and it all blends together. Is that right?

HI Kaye,
yes .
I put on areas of luster leaving a lot of white porcelain showing. ( If you put the colors too close together at this stage, it doesnt leave you any room for the colors to mingle and make secondary colors . If the colors are all jammed together when you paint them on, you will get muddy color )

I then drip dispersing fluid all over the piece while tipping, tilting and blowing on the piece to move th e luster around.. I do this till IM happy with the light/ dark patterns.You wont know what the colors look like till after firing.. but you will be able to see light and dark patterns...

You can add more luster or more dispersing fluid as needed...

and yes, because i leave a lot of white showing when I apply the luster in the first place, it leaves white areas in the pattern... If you dont like that look, you can always do a 2nd solid coat of luster over the whole thing ..

I've only today stumbled on this - I look at the site almost on a daily basis for all the wonderful inspiration from around the world! Christine kindly posts stuff for me - she usually emails me the link! She is amazing ...
Thank you for your comments on my unfinished painting! To put the record straight - it is in a acrylic at this stage - I like to used to media to enable me to add bits to the canvas - eg beads, torn paper, etc. Later, I may add oil paints - I tend to sort of use oil at the latter stages of work. I used the image as a source to produce the painting which is about the stormy conditions in Portugal in early March - I have substituted the palm trees for buildings on the beach ... the painting is darker to represent the devastating news items about Madiera and the coast of Portugal while we were there.
Simply love the work Jill and Marci have produced - longing to see how Marci forms her wonderful shapes!
'nuff said. Regards, Elizabeth

I had not been keeping track of PPIO stuff for several months and got back to it about a month ago - everything about this challenges amazes me: the photos and the work that the artists' have done, all AMAZING and so beautiful! Beautiful work Jill, Marci and Elizabeth - sure wish I could see them in person!

That's beautiful! Is it oil? Acrylic? Mixed media? ;bravo;

Thank you all for showing interest. Kerri, just to say it is all the above! Mixed media in that I have used acrylic, torn paper, beads, ground coffee, and developed the image and then worked over everything in oil paint. I began this method of working whilst I was in the final year of my degree and it has become my preferred way of making a painting. Regards, Elizabeth
