A few weeks ago I took a one day workshop on printing on clay, I've got to say I really enjoyed it but was far to frazzled from work to get the most of it.I've never really had a chance to play with clay before but have always fancied slinging some around and seeing what happens! We used porcelain paper clay because you can roll it very thin, I wasn't very good at the rolling flat part so quite a few of my attempts had to be scrapped due to not really having rolled the clay flat enough.We used powdered stains which all had lovely names and were named after birds... I wish I could remember them all I remember is Plover Brown! We mixed them with linseed oil and printing medium (seriously I have no idea what I am talking about!) it did however smell lovely and we inked up lino cuts and leaves to make impressions in the clay.
My efforts aren't amazing... my little pot is a tad wonky and I really wish I had trimmed my plaques into nice shapes but I have lots of ideas and can't wait to have another go! Hopefully soon!
