A Slow Start

As promised, a few pots that I painted last night. Ila stopped in to glaze her pots before heading home for the holiday. I had another visit from Courtney and John on the way home from Asheville, bearing bags of clay and a fresh gallon of wax from the supplier!!

After setting up the painting station, I sat down to wake up the brushes and get some wax on these pots. The greenish painting is food coloring in my wax so that I can see where I've painted. I've found it easier to paint pattern when I can see what I'm doing and on the RJB (white slip) it's hard to see w/o a little green food coloring.
