>Here is another bowl in my series of experiments with color. This time, I decided that I would attempt to replicate the look of a salt glaze pottery piece. Didn't quite get there, but I don't think it's as bad (actually, the first one has grown on me...go figure!) as the first one.
I'm using Mixol with DNA as a thinning agent. I love this stuff, and I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy more at Totally Turning. The colorant is some kind of pigment that can be mixed with anything to make your medium. The bowl was just a plain maple bowl, which is much better suited for the coloring than the siberian elm in the first one. I mixed it much thicker this time, and the color is opaque.
