Watercolor Painting on Pottery Platter

Okay, I had to try it. Ever since I saw the pottery watercolor sets in a catalog I have been dying to give it a shot! So, this morning's kiln presented me with my first watercolor (bravely painted on a 14" platter).

The colors were darker after firing, a bit of a surprise...I would have thought they would burn out and fade a bit. I covered the amaco stoneware watercolors with a clear glaze to make it food safe, and give it a glossy finish. What fun!

Now I have to throw some plates and platters just to play with so I can do some detailed painings! A new direction to explore....
