Today I have been using up the last of some terracotta that I’ve had for ages. I’ve made some great figures for mounting on wood and brick. Also I made more tiles for firing for the canvas piece I’m working on, as I didnt think I had enough for the whole frame. I enjoyed using up the terracotta as I dont use it very often, but you can certainly work slower as it dosnt dry out as quickly as porcelain. The figures will need to dry properly, so I will try to fire them on the weekend, so I can get on with glazing (YUK!!!!!) all the tiles. It will take forever to glaze and then to put them in the kiln one by one. I wish there was an easier way to fire them as I dont have alot of shelves, so it will have to be done in batches. If you can come up with a better idea, please email me and tell me PLEASE…
