experimental text

I tried out my rubber stamp alphabet set this week..

The 'Y' needed some help and I found the clay needs to be firming up before they work well.

See you over on Sunday Ceramics or on Facebook.

You make me want to dig out my stamps!

where did you get the stamps Anna? I have been using cake decorating letters but they are so fiddly. I have ink pad ones but they dont work very well in the clay. Yours look to be a good size.

Hi Smartcat stamps are fun :)

Hi Kim I found these at a stationery store called TYPO. They have nice long timber bases that make them easier to handle. Fairly small but good enough. The store had another version of the alphabet stamps too. (different font).

cool, will you use underglaze to highlight the letters?

Hi Linda I'm not sure just where this is headed. I haven't got back to trim the pot.. :/ Maybe I will cut it up, maybe I will bisque it and use iron oxide to highlight the letters?
