Now that wintertime has basically established in–we are in the center of  a snow storm as I type– and the vacations are generally about, I find that I have time in my studio for trying out new factors and tips.  I have been playing close to with oxides and have created quite a few experiments to see what will materialize.
My picture higher than is in advance of I fired them.

Right here is what I did, beginning at the leading–heading from left to correct
1. Brown daisies stained with iron oxide
2. Spherical cabochon stained with  cobalt and coverd with crystal clear glaze ( remaining side of plate)
3. Daisy cabochon stained with iron oxide and then lightly colored with a crimson glaze on the petals and a blue glaze on the middle and lightly distinct glazed
4. 2  hole pendant stained with iron oxide and evenly colored with quite a few glazes and then a mild obvious glaze extra
5.adhere pendant stained and then partialy painted with a crimson glaze and a light-weight coat of clear
6. snail formed pendant lightly colored and clear glazed–incredibly rustic and fosil like beforehand
7. little stained tab piece–from a damaged pendant
8.  fan of daisy petals stained and then lightly glazed with red and a crystal clear glaze–no color on daisy head
9.Donut with flippantly color glazed little leaves and some other areas.  No apparent glaze.
Most of the pieces ended up fired very first with just the iron oxide glaze–following they ended up bisqued so when I fire these parts it will be for the 3rd time.

I will post the results tomorrow.
Thanks for halting by!!
