Testing Test Tiles

First attempt to use brush-on glazes! To become familiar with the glazes, their combos, the running, as well as the processing in the studio kiln, I need to test the glaze on test tiles. So I made some.  Well I gave it a try, rolled out some clay, texturized the slab, positioned the slab to dry… but I dried it too long so cutting the slab into little ‘test tiles’ became a chore. Anyhow I saved what I could I bisqued them, and wha-lah!  LOL  (the studio has an extruder and I was given the green light to use it – yeehaw!… I’ll document that experience in a later post after it happens).

The glazes I’m testing are Amaco’s Potter’s Choice: Ancient Jasper and Blue Rutile. After doing a lil research I LOVED results of using these two glazes that folks were posting.
