Bruce – The Supermodel

“Isn’t he lovely…….isn’t he wonderful……

Isn’t he precious….. less than one minute old!”


Words from the great Stevie Wonder, (well almost, apart from ‘he’ was a ‘she’)

But really, only a mother could love him eh!! This is, ‘Bruce’ the stunning Aussie French bulldog.

He’s no oil painting, eh – no, he’s a vitreous enamel fired painting!!

ImageAnd here is how I did it…. First you grind the paint and mix it with vinegar for ages.

Then you apply the ‘line’ and fire in a kiln – that took ages too.Image

Then you apply the ‘matting’. Let this dry… and then ‘scrub’ away to reveal the light and shade. Then fire again.




Great fun – definitely going to do more of this.


Oooh, already have. Well it’s not worth turning the kiln on just for Bruce the Supermodel. So I had a go at painting plumage on a Blackbird and my favourite Curlew too.Image





I am liking these…Image
