Kevin Gen. 2 got too hot too fast. I candled him for 24 hours, but he still wasn’t dry enough. Here are the remains. I have to figure out a way to install him in the 840 show anyway on Wednesday. Pictures of that will be posted as well. This is highly disappointing.
I’m finally finished building!!!!
In theses pictures you can see where I’ve carved away to get ready to inlay the underglaze. Please ignore that giant lump of clay holding the tail up, it’s just there for support until the clay stiffens up, so all of that will just be negative space when all is finished.
I’ve also started applying the black underglaze. It looks a mess because I still have to finish scraping the edges of the inlayed areas. Toward the bottom you can kind of see where I’ve scraped some of it away (the lines are thinner and cleaner). But eventually all of the lines will be that quality.
