colours of tuscan
saturday workshop day and busy again todays blue areas and red of the far end of the table.. layering the colours and working the wash to create depth and contrast within each section of the table, each area is defined by shaped tiles and colour defines the decoration of that area..
I've recut some more pieces to fit the design better and also make more section within large expanses..
It's coming together well and with the drying of the later tiles the deco can be completed.. the tile dryness needs to be consistent to get an even colour application..the tiles at this point are quite white but still contain moisture,..they then flipped again to complete the drying process pre bisque firing..
