  Finally the urn takes shape. covered with terra sigulata (and black stain) i scratched the crappy swirl into it. brying to be fired now.  It's nice to finally see some colour coming into play, even if it is only black.

terracotta is gods gift
The elephant face is the test of paper clay. we had to roll it over textured surfaces, and then make an animate figure. strange how an elephant came out...  ;)

paperclay sucks.

What's paperclay? Rolled clay, or a type of clay? And what does it suck? I know terracotta sucks milk...

it's clay mixed with paper pulp. it's meant to be better for handforming and building. it's grand cause once it's dry (but before being fired) u can just wet and join another bit on. but it feels nasty and the paper goes all rotty and smells nasty. blerg.

hey YOU! ;)

i know about the shino, this comment ws designed to stir you up. paperclay did nothing for me, and is reflected by the mimimal effort in the elefant construction.

i have to ask, wot's 'porc but' ?
