Not sure I can find dragons in those colors, anyway. But I will keep that in mind.

My latest piece pre-firing

It's been in my head for a while, But i'm amazed that only two sessions of 1-2 hours and it's committed to the kiln.... fingers crossed....

So now you let it dry, and then you glaze it, right? And then you fire it?

What colors are you going to do?

No it's fired before glazing (the bisque fire) then you glaze it and it gets fired again (the glaze fire).

I have no idea on colors yet. that's the really hard part. sometimes it takes me years to get round to glazing a piece because I can't decide what to do with it -like the very first piece in this thread.

Blues and greens would look cool and maybe a splash of red in the eyes or something like that...

wait, now that I look at it again...yellow orange brownish in the snakes...use a dark brown for the crevices of the snakes...then use the blues and greens for the background. That's my idea

Thanks, but I'm one of those weirdos who likes to work it out for themselves

Still haven't glazed Medusa, meanwhile here's what started out as (and still sort of is) an Udu drum which I finally glazed. I hate making glazing choices, it's so ...final But I'm very happy with this
