Making a Popcorn Bowl with Is part 2


Now that Is’ giant popcorn bowl has been fired in the kiln, she’s ready to add some colour.

First, Is shows us how to apply a wash of black underglaze to bring to life the delicate impressions left by the leaves and gumnuts used as decoration in Part 1. This wash will seep into all the tiny cracks and indents. Is also uses underglaze to decorate the bottom of her bowl with a pattern that complements the natural design on the inside.

What kind of patterns can you create using the same theme?

Finally, Is adds a layer of blue glaze before returning the bowl to the kiln. When it comes back it will be lovely and shiny, and ready to be filled with popcorn!
