About the time I uncovered the theme for this month’s Artwork Things weblog hop: Getaway Creations, I was organizing to make a set of kitty cat themed ornaments for a tree for our ageing cat. We have a new glassed in front porch and imagined it would be a excellent way to beautify it for the Vacations. And for ceramic ornaments, it would be safe and sound from the features.
For the final few several years we have been owning an outside tree instead on a single inside of. We have it out on the deck and adorn it with brightly colored netted fowl treats. It is so enjoyment viewing the birds flutter all-around the tree and peck at these “house baked” goodies of birdseed and peanut butter. So this 12 months we have 2 Xmas trees.
For our kitty cat tree, I employed cat formed cutters to reduce out the decorations.
They seemed rather significant at very first but my clay shrinks about 11 % so they seemed a great deal better as soon as they were bisque fired.
I employed two strategies to provide my cat decorations to lifetime. For some I silk screened on cat drawings (Mayco silkscreens) bisqued them and then added colour
and for many others I did some drawing into the clay. They dried seriously promptly so by the time I acquired to them to scratch in some strains, the incisions ended up not very deep. To enhance them I employed a black underglaze and then wiped it off, bisque fired them
and then hand painted on glazes and fired these to cone 5 ( previously mentioned 2100 levels F)
Eventually I decorated the tree.
