Momma Guru’s next project is to make a back splash for her sister’s kitchen. For this project she is considering using a scrafitto style. For those of you that don’t know, scraffito is a technique where one skratches into the surface of a desired medium.
So, since Momma Guru is hoping to permanetly install these tiles in her sister’s kitchen she has decided to do a few test tiles to see what colors her sister likes best.
Since her sister lives in the Colorado mountains she has decided to go with a wildflower humming bird theme. Here are some photos before she began carving.
She first traced the outline, applied 3 layers of underglaze and began taking away the negative space.
After the bisque she is planning on applying more colors to the background. Here is a picture of the kitchen with a projection of what the finished project will look like, although the colors will be different.
Stay tuned to see what happens….
