    I have seen a few Ceramics threads here, but they are all about wheel throwing.. I have a feeling that Pouring molds, (Pouring liquid clay into a "mold" to give it shape, and then pouring the excess off after 15 minutes to an hour depending on size) is dying... so, does anyone still do it?? I'd LOVE To see your artwork (whether they be poured greenware, or finished painted products!!) , and show off some of my own later..

    Here is one of my pieces that i drybrushed... I tend to do a lot of 4 techniques: Underglaze-glaze (or underglaze washing), Glaze, Drybrush, or Stained..

    I bought him fired, but I painted him using Drybrushing, and the colors: Dark Brown, Mississippi Mud, Mink, Light Taupe, Ginger, White (Around Muzzle) BLack (around Muzzle) and Orange Rust in the background.

    I will get more pieces up later.. I just wanted to get him out there... :)
