Making Bleuette Part 4 - Cleaning and Firing


Cleaning greenware is a slow and boring process and mistakes happen. Always cut the eyes first, if the eye cuts are not right it is garbage, period. So take your time do it right.

This head is bad, there is nothing that can be done, you could try, but by the time you get something the eyes will be huge, too huge, toss it


...and start over like this.


These are still in the cleaning process.


The kiln is being loaded slowly there is still room for some of the ones I am still working on.


This should be loaded and fired by the end of the week and we can move onto china painting and firing!

I am looking foreword to being done with cleaning for a while.
