WP? Who is the WP?

WP, that's me. I do these colored pots now myself.

Wow,great! How did you do it? Do you have kiln to firing the glaze?

Walter Pall said...

No, I take pots which have a good shape but otherwise a dull color which makes them just training pots and paint them carefully with acrylic colors. They are hardy. I have some pots which are outside all year also in very cold weather and the color is still perfect. If on some points the color should break I just paint over it again and one does not notice the repair. This is just in the beginning stage for me but it opens a whole new area.

I know perfectly well that potters frown at folks who PAINT pots instead of creating proper glazing. But that's their problem, not mine. A very long time ago I wanted to become painter like ma grandfather. Well, and now I am. :-) Somehow. Well, anyway, a bit more artistic than painting the fence.

The pot seems fine to me at first sight. Why not paint them?! Especially for projects in early stages... better than rotten wood-boxes (which many of us use).

Regarding the tree itselt: Finally a project you worked on which is not very interesting... at least until now.
But somehow you will manage to surprise us with it in the future... I´m sure.
