Spraying Glazes

Spraying Glazes

After recovering from our trip to Europe, I’ve been busy, busy making pots and getting ready to do another glaze firing.

I’ve made lots of “new things” for me! Seems traveling does open ones creative senses!!

I want my glazes to be more exciting!  I love this pic that seems very “octopusy” to me.  I would like my pots to look a bit like this!

These pots below represent the “type” of glazes that I would like to achieve!

I’ve decided that to get the glazes I want, I’ve got to upgrade my spraying set-up. I currently have a Little Beaver system that looks like a little vacuum cleaner.  So I bought a new gravity-fed sprayer ($49 bucks at Bunnings!).

and a small pasch air brush from Brad at Picasso Ceramics.  Brad is AWESOME!!! He showed my husband how to set up the compressor, gauge, and hookups.



My husband, Ronnie, then built a board that holds all the pieces to my new spraying stuff!  WOW!!

    Looking good Marian, I’m sure we will soon see Octopusi type glazes. Ellen Appleby of Based in Noosa has a little air brush and does wonderful glazing highlights with that so I’m sure you’ll be happy with your new setup. Nice to have a hubby Tech :^)
