More Be Still...

Hello Everyone,

As I mentioned in my previous post, I've been claying, just not posting. And since we're under our second winter storm watch this week, I'm hibernating with clay things. I decided a while back to try and do another "Be Still..." plaque. This first photo is from my first attempt. I was unhappy with the roller marks on the clay. A couple of people wrote me, including Marla Frankenburg, and suggested that I could eliminate the lines by brayering the clay with something.

I tried it this time and it worked beautifully! No roller marks at all. I've still got to varnish this so that the Daniel Smith powder doesn't rub off (or maybe I won't bother with varnish since it's only going to be hanging up somewhere) but I like the result.

Thanks to the clayers for their wonderful suggestions.
