I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. Things were a bit quiet around here for us this year, but I did finally have a chance to crack the lid and fire some pieces to test the new batch of Coyote cone six glazes I purchased a month or so ago.
VioletI thought these would go nicely with some of my other colors to round out my palette with some similar hues suggested by Pantone for 2012. I tested them on porcelain and stoneware. Yesterday was cloudy, so these photos are not stellar, but here's how the glazes turned out.
Sunset Pink - It's very Coral pink.
Red Orange - It's Really Red Orange, Very similar to the Sunset Pink, only Darker. It will be great for some fall pieces.
Mint - This shade I really like. A nice light color that looks great on both the porcelain and stoneware. An alternative to my favorite ~ turquoise.
Saturated Iron - A very rich, earthy shade. I see lots of nice potential with this one. It looks great in the sunflower centers as well.
Crazed Copper - This one is going to be one of my new favorites I can tell. It's a bit like the Mint, but also reminds me of a lighter Gun Metal green with it's metallic look and the way it moves.
And, last by not least ~ Violet ~ I'm a huge purple fan, and this shade makes the grade. It looks amazing with all of these new colors, and I know I'll be using this one frequently as well.
