Posted 23 May 2013mart, very cool!
well, its just a shaving bowl, so there will only be water in it for a short amount of time, probably every day or so.
i guess im not really worried about it being water PROOF, i just didnt want it to fall apart on him years from now.
he wants the outside rough and sandy like so hell have a good grip on it. i havent really tested unglazed ceramic material with water to see what happens.
im thinking of what chris said about using a clay wash and attaching (probably raw grog) to the outside.
hopefully thatll fire and hold steady without flaking off too much.
if it works and is solid, i guess i can just underglaze the whole thing, then clear glaze the inside.
Posted 23 May 2013ive used crayons before. its not a solid line, but weird little scribbles come out kinda neet!
Posted 23 May 2013i definitely do. i like being able to see the profile as it spins.
i feel like i can see the clay better. id definitely suggest it!
Posted 14 May 2013actually, a matte clear. is that even possible? or necessary?
Posted 14 May 2013chris, that will totally work!
thank you so much!
and, ive never worked with a matte glaze.
the inside of the shaving bowl needs to be shiny glazed for water protection, and the outside is to be matte. but is a matte glaze waterproof too?
