Technique Tips

Keep a Notebook--Lonette Pope is known among the members of our Ceramics Club as having a meticulous eye for detail in her designs. One of her favorites is her elegant tray. “The key, for me, to painting any detailed design is my notebook,” Lonette said. She cites this tip as something she learned about in her first ceramics classes six years ago. She has a notebook devoted to ceramics. She makes a copy of her design and uses it as she is painting, noting the color number and the number of coats that have been applied.
