If you were to ask me that question on any day of the week, the answer would be a very definite purple… but not today!
Today my favourite colour is brown, not very exciting, a colour associated with some of the less attractive things in life, but today it’s most definitely brown!
Why? Well scroll down for the answer!
On the second attempt, I’ve managed to grow some crystals in my kiln. They’re not the prettiest, but they’re there!
The first attempt, failed miserably, I think I spotted one or two on the very edge of the test pieces, but you had to look very very closely! This time, I altered the recipe, added a couple of extra bits to see what happened and got the results above.
The designs need refining and the application of the glaze is a little heavy handed, but with some tweaking, I think I can get these looking really good… and with some added ingredients, I’ll hopefully come up with some more desirable colours!
