Today, I thought I would share another fantastic layered surface technique from Erin Furimsky’s Layered Surfaces DVD. In this one, she takes ordinary foam craft stamps and puts her own twist on them. Then she combines that look with sgraffito (see finished glazed and fired piece below video!). Gorgeous, as usual. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

A few weeks ago, the lovely and talented Erin Furimsky spent a few days here filming a DVD on layered ceramic surfaces, which will be out in July. I was so excited by the techniques that Erin demonstrated, that it was actually a little bit torturous to be behind the camera. I just wanted to race to the studio and start experimenting! Today I am sharing an excerpt from Erin’s DVD in which she combines a shellac-resist technique with stamped-on underglaze imagery. Have a look and then race to your studio to try it out!
