Unique gifts for the New Year - souvenirs made of ceramics of your authorship. This time I made a dragon and a vase. But you can think of and shape - perhaps something special, cause certain memories or associations from the person to whom you are going to present a hand-made gift. As for the process, the novice potter thing - to find nearby muffle kiln. And everything else was not so bad: a little more difficult than to sculpt out of clay! Stick to the basic rules - important good peremyat clay before work and not let it dry out during molding. Bake clay and glazed articles should be at the temperature indicated on the package.

For the first experiments modeling is better to take grog - a ceramic mass with small particles already baked clay. It is more stable and forgiving to beginners flaws. Sculpt figures can be in one piece or joining different fragments. For this purpose, the parts to be glued together, make incisions. They both should be wetted. Fluff can be diluted to their creamy state clay - slip. Then the elements maximally tightly pressed against each other and smooth down the joint line, so that it was not visible.

At the time of firing the product should be completely dry, or by heating in steam ovens tear it from the inside. After the first firing your work zaglazurovat can again burn at a high temperature (as was done with vase). And it is possible (as I did with the dragon) soaked in milk and ignited in the oven, it will give the surface a little aged look. The higher the temperature in the oven, the darker will be the result.

First glazuruem inner surface of the vase. Outside the base cover dark glaze. Then, from the top down we pass a light glaze. Apply a few shades smoothly diverging spots overlapping each other, the color was more complex and deeper. For the final glaze layer may be used with the addition of granules or crystals, which after calcination have the effect of small spots or specks.
