Tiles & Tribulations #6

Tiles & Tribulations #6
Progress is being made on the long, slow, winding road to making my own Delft tiles. Here my take on a traditional design, a triton or merman a-blowing on his horn. The contrast between line-work and wash could have been greater, but over all I'm pretty content with the results.
The tile as painted…

...and after firing and ageing, showing the beginnings of some pleasing surface craquelure (desired).
