Loving my bird tiles

Before I use new glazes, I have to make the test tiles because whatever you do it is almost impossible to fix. It took me about a month between firing the bisque, documenting the color, applying, firing for the second time and finally having them available as a reference for painting.
I used a combination of different textures, opacity and colors, the only thing they have in common is the firing temperature. Maybe in the future I'll play with an additional firing with metallic glazes. For now I'm very happy with my birdie tiles, and as always showing the beautiful color and texture of the terracotta.
And mini tiles for my Etsy store
