Second Firing…

The second batch came out of the kiln and I am so excited! These came out better than I thought they would, and they’re going up in Etsy tonight. πŸ™‚ Or tomorrow morning. I’m kinda tired.

Here’s a comparison of what went in to what came out:

There’s a few I didn’t keep track of and can’t find. I’m going to see if there’s a lost and found and hope nobody made off with them. The moral of the story is to initial everything with that neat little pain pen. πŸ™‚

I’m having a blast seeing how things fire and how the colors turn in the kiln. A few prefires I posted in the last entry aren’t up here because they turned into lifeless blobs, and I have decided I dislike the looks of the hard-fused pieces intensely. I don’t like how they lose their shape. So…I’m going to stick mainly to soft-tack firings.

I have some new colors and textures of glass I bought today, as well as another sheet of silver foil, so I’m going to include those in the next batch. πŸ™‚

I’ve taken a bit of a different approach to new pieces and am starting to incorporate lace and ribbon into a new set of chokers. I will be posting my results later in the week. I’m steering towards a lolita look, which I’ve wanted to do for a long time. πŸ™‚ Stay tuned!
