Experimenting with pre-made ceramics

This past few weeks we have been doing a bit of experimenting with re-glazing ceramic objects we’ve found at dollar stores and thrift stores. This is mosly the hus-monkey’s project and doing… but thrifting is fun so I’ve been helping choose items and will hopefully paint a few.

We’re trying things that are both just plain white and some stuff that has a design already on it. We’re curious to see if the design already there will burn off or not… and what exactly will happen to the old and new glaze. I think though if things just straight up don’t explode I’ll count this as a success!

The kiln ran last night and it’s cooling right now but soon I’ll have pictures of the finished pieces to post here.
