I've created two adjacent square tiles on red clay and covered them with various brush strokes and random splashes of slip in colours of pale blue, pale green and white - even though they appear white at the moment. They have still to be biscuit fired so I hope they don't break when I try to draw into them after cleaning and smoothing the edges. Unfortunately they are a bit too thin for comfort and have curled up slightly - I should have weighted them when they were drying or simply made them thicker.
The plan is to etch a scene into these patterns of colour which will show up as dark red lines and shapes.
Haven't yet decided what the scene will be - maybe some animals or a simple landscape. If the final result warrants it, I may then mount the tiles and frame them.
Here are the tiles at the stage before etching the scene. Of course the true colours will not be obvious until the final glazing.
