Here is the start of a teapot in casein. This was part of my mom’s tea set which still has the sugar bowl, but the creamer must have long since been lost or broken.
I had a demo about casein to give to the GCWS at the beginning of August, and decided this would make a good photo to work from – lace and roses and a solid reflective surface!
I enlarged the photo and marked my reference spots onto the board and then drew in the rest. The centers of roses are just sort of squiggles that make them look like roses, and lace is, well, get a few of the open areas dead on and our eyes tell us “look – lace!”

Here is the first wash.

Ooooo, this one will be fun to watch. A reflective surface, AND lace, can't wait to see you work your magic on this one.
