using marbles when firing clay


Date: Sun Oct 12 2003 - 05:55:22 PDT

I discovered that regular every day colored marbles can be put on clay
in the second firing at cone 06. The marbles melt like glaze but is
thicker and stays in one place. Makes an interesting effect. I was
wondering if any of you had tried this. I did a test firing to see if it
would actually work and it did! I will be using this technique later in
the year to create masks or possibly picture frames. Any ideas?
