So who would have guessed that selling the majority of your ceramic stash meant that you'd be lacking ceramics for your own miniature food?,. everyone? yes, I know, me included. No regrets though.
Been prepping ceramics which are currently in the kiln for the bisque firing and will be glaze fired tomorrow *yay*. I've chosen to go for a new system; Usually when making ceramics, I'll just use whichever glazes I feel like. A couple of metallic black plates, then a couple of beige etc. This time I'm going to stick with 2 colors for the entire batch. Well, technically 3 - but 2 of them are almost the same shade. I know this means I'll have less options, which means I'll likely have to fire ceramics more frequently - at least until I've built up a decent selection again. The reason why I'm going to try doing it this way though, is for the ease of having similar plates/bowls for each 'project'. eg. if making brownies and I decide that I want to have them arranged on a pink plate, I'd like to avoid the situation of having just 1 pink plate left if I'm planning on making 2, 3 or even 4 similar arrangement. It's kindda difficult to explain because most food can go on different colors of plates and still look awesome, so what's the big deal?. A better way of explaining it, I guess, is to have the right number/color of plates to create what you envisioned. Sometimes you have a scene or a combination in mind, and you don't want to 'ruin' that vision with the wrong color of tableware, right? ^^'
I'm also working on an update for the ceramics tutorial; an additional video which will show swatches of my different glazes including brands and names. I was going to make a PDF but figured a video where I can twist and turn the pieces would be more helpful. I likely won't be talking in the video unless I find that it'll add something important or otherwise helpful to the content. Anyone who has purchased the tutorial will receive an email notification when the update is available - it's a free update, so no need for further action :)
The update should be available at the end of this month, or the first weekend of November.
