Combining Stamped Underglaze Decoration with Shellac Resist to Create Gorgeous Layered Surfaces

 Create serious depth with stamped underglaze decoration with shellac resist

shellac resist-620There are so many ways to decorate pottery surfaces beyond simply glazing. And when you combine decorative techniques in layers, the potential for creativity expands exponentially.


When we filmed Erin Furimsky’s DVD on layered ceramic surfaces, 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! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
