Home Truths: Under-Glaze Painting

This process was a much more freer and expressive one. As we applied it on to biscuit fired tiles and was able to just really experiment with what kind of effects we could achieve with the paints, and also under-glazed pencil that gave the sense of charcoal pencil and produced really nice sensitive marks. I decided to use both pencil and paint to create different textures and depth. And although the under-glaze paints don’t behave like your average paint being a bit less malleable, the colours still become much more vivid once glazed and fired.  The finished result to this piece was a pleasant surprise.
