“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!!
And 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.
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.
