Description

Translucent porcelain slip, c/ 10; original low bas-relief illustration carved in damp plaster; when plaster is bone dry, I tape a fence of tape around the rectangle to catch the 1/8" flowing porcelain slip ; once leather hard, I transfer to finish dry on to a plaster bat that has a recessed center to make the rainbow.

Short Statement

I carve a low bas-relief illustration in damp plaster. When the plaster is bone dry, I tape a fence around the rectangle to catch the 1/8" flowing porcelain slip. When slip is leather hard, I remove the porcelain slab onto another plaster slab, with a recessed center to make the rainbow.
