This week I mixed some new ceramic water colors for my palette. The actual stains what I used are from 1926‘s, from good old Stoke-On-Trent, England. Can you imagine this? These colors are true vintage! Even the packages were tiny brown paper bags with a very delicate handwriting on a side.
I really wish that these colors will work. From ‘Dragon red’, ‘Butterfly orange’, ‘Apple green’ and ‘Italian yellow’ I have so high hopes ! Also I have at least 12 different shades of blue here too. One I named ‘?Mystery Blue?’ cause it wasn’t labelled.
This is quite an amazing piece of information to add part of my newest ceramic project’s tale, don’t you think?
I am so ready to test this color palette! Today I filled a kiln with my mid-range test tiles (1220°C). Next week I will fire earthenware tests (1060-1080 °C).
