A "rock" with SCM and friends. No air compressor needed.

This is ^10R SCMO with Silicon Carbide 0.75%, Spotted Black, Hanna's Fake Ash, and Watercolor Green on Laguna Half and Half. There were two, but the other one was sold before I got a picture. It looked even better than this one.

The SCM was applied one layer with a sponge. The rest were sprayed on with a mouth sprayer like this:

This really makes it practical to do one or two pots at a time. If you use the compressor, booth and sprayer, the setup and cleanup takes so long you really need to do a bunch of pots to make it worth your while. I plan to make a few more of these with the ^6 glazes...

SCM Cool and Hanna's Blue Ash over Coyote Clay Aqua over black underglaze

Not crazy about this one. Probably didn't put enough SCM and Hanna's Blue Ash on it. This is on Continental mid-fire white stoneware.

SCM Cool and Hanna's Blue Ash over Water Blue (Revision 1 from Pottery Making Illustrated) over black underglaze

The best of the lot. This is on Continental Super White.

This one is also pretty good. Also on Continental Super White.

This one had quite a few pinholes and craters inside and out. It's on Continental Mid-fire White Stoneware I'll probably try to re-fire.

Another kind of yellow.

This is from layering a white glaze over an iron saturate with bone ash (Ohata). I was not expecting this color at all but I kind of like it.

SCM Cool cups

SCM Cool, Water Color Blue, Hanna's Blue Ash, Jenn's Juicy Fruit on Continental Clay Super White.

SCM Cool craters

This is what happens to me a lot when using SCM over white stoneware (Continental mid-fire white in this case). The poured Mayco Green Tea was just as bad on these cups. Maybe someday I'll learn my lesson.
