Terra Sig Mutant
The sugary terra sig glaze experiment can't just sit in the studio going hard. I've given it a new job and things are working out really well. The scraffitti leptospermums used to work in a loose variant of mishima with pure terra sig, but with the sugary glaze/terra mutant the line seems cleaner. I think it is because of the addition of the clear glaze, the pigment is gathered up when the glaze melts and settles into the scraffitto line. this enhances the clarity and scratchy qualities of the lines and the slight shine the glaze gives the inlay attracts the eye making the drawing stronger and more coherent.
