I am so pleased with them ...I love how they turned out.
Many hours went in to making them.
The glazing itself took around 16 hours plus to apply.
The bird on the roof, the rabbit on the front, the flowers and the ladybugs ...I am so pleased how they all turned out.
I love it plus I have lots of turquoise on my front porch.
Each glaze color has to be applied three times ...so it takes time.
This glaze never lets you down.
I am so happy with how it turned out.
I brushed a white underglaze on it then wiped most of it off with a damp sponge....leaving the glaze in the lines.
I think it is very effective...Don't you ???
And a hole underneath to clean out the house if a bird should nest in it ..
I will put this house in the deep shade so that it doesn't get too hot inside when the sun is beating down.
I can use a gas lighter for lighting a candle and set fire to the nesting material inside.
Then shake the ashes out of the bottom and front hole.
Not as detailed as the first one.
I love the glazed I chose for this one.
And I enjoyed carving on the sides of the house.
I then used a new glaze I have just purchased ...Mayco's Robin's Egg.
It has crystals in it that make difference splashes of color through out the glaze.
It's a matte glaze ...and I just LOVE it ....I used it on the rabbit on the previous house.
I surrounded the hole with a flower.
I think it worked out so well ...I am so in love with it.
The glaze is amazing, again my favorite glaze Mayco's Midnight Rain.
The flower stem I glazed in Mayco's Birch ..another favorite.
It is Mayco's Textured Leopard.
I have used this many times in my pottery creations.
I have never carved like this on a piece before.
I am super excited on how they turned out.
I hand carved them and enjoyed every moment of it.
I think the flower design turned out beautifully.
And the two birds on the opposite side turned out great and are so much fun.
And allowing me to 'show off' my pottery creations.
I also made some interesting necklace pieces.
I will be attaching the necklaces on to my pottery pieces.
And will post them in my Etsy.com shop in the next few days.
Don't forget to visit my Etsy shop sometimes ..clicking on the 'Etsy' button on the top right hand side of this page.
I have sold one and have got great feedback from my customer.
She said that she ' Loves It ' ....so that brought a smile to my face.
Have a wonderful day
