Thankyou girls, Georgie, have fun with it my flower but be patient with the glazing......I have no patience hence why the last of the beads ;D

 ;D I wasn't blessed with loads of patience, but I don't like things to beat me either ::) ;)

Tan I'm a slapper when it comes to glazes, why do you need patience ?

Gorgeous work - love the top bowl especially Jille, Caroline those beads are delicious and Tan I think you should make more of these - I really like the red pair they remind me of some kind of pod or nuts. x :)

Thanks for the lovely comments girls.

I don't mind glazing Jill its just glazing beads and buttons, all those teeny fiddly holes to clean out so they dont' stick to everything, it drives me mad

do you do them on satay sticks Tan? I do know what you mean , some of my best beads have come off chipped because they stuck. You can always not glaze and paint with overglaze enamels, I've done that and they came out fine.

I do them on kebab skewers, it seems a double edged sword, lots of fiddly coats if I do it by hand and minimal cleaning, or dip them which is faster but then lots of fiddly cleaning.

I have thought about going with another surface decoration path but if I am honest I made these beads about five years ago in a fit of excitement, fired to bisque and after glazing the first batch fell completely and  utterly out of love. Because my kiln is so big I have to glaze dozens just to make it worth firing

Don't be silly Tan... they're gorgeous, I love your glazes, your stuff always looks really juicy!
Handy tip, coz I can't be bothered cleaning out holes either... put them on pipe cleaners, it stops anything going in the holes and they clean themselves as you pull them out :D yay :D
