video silkscreening logo1

The above video  might be helpful for those who want to use silkscreens on their pottery.  Actually, this commission piece enabled me to use almost all of the techniques I have learned, The plate itself was made from a lowfire white clay slab, impressed with a foam texture  that I made using my Silhouette Cameo.  Click here to see original posting showing finished plate. 

In the linked posting, you can see the foam cut I made to create the shape and decoration of the plate
One thing I didn't mention in that entry was that I did all the glazing and decorating on greenware "and" single fired the whole thing at cone 04.  I wanted the front of the plate to be whiter than the clay body, so used white underglaze on the font of the plate, then silkscreened the spanish sentiment on top of the white underglaze, then used clear glaze over the whole thing.  
I have made hundreds of foam cuts on my Silhouette Cameo to use with my clay and in other hobbies,
