This is a spoon rest….that didn’t turn out how I wanted. The shape is pretty nice, but the coloring just didn’t turn out right. I glazed the bottom in emerade and the top in tobacco (maybe?).
Anyways, the tobacco is a matte finish and it looked pretty bad. Uneven coverage and not smooth. So I glazed it again with another brown. It still didn’t look right, so I glazed it, yet again! This time with robin’s egg.
I did an even coat of robin’s egg all over and then Mrs. Susie (our instructor) helped me to drizzle (I almost said to drool it over. :) heehee) the robin’s egg over the handle slightly. I think it turned out pretty good…acceptable at least. I’m not 100% happy with it, but at this point I’m just glad it’s done.
I know not everybody likes the spoon rest. :P My mom politely informed me that it looked like a ladies’ butt.
