Before and After

Work is being done! The little Dudes above have been bisque fired and then coated with black glaze.  Just so you don't think the magic happens easily, it is very tedious and messy to then scrape it all back off (below) to get the right effect after they are fired once more.

 And sometimes the magic never happens. This Dude (below) got Susan's critical eye: "The hat looks like Dopey's in the Seven Dwarves and the arms are pathetic. And why do his lips look like they got botox?" So the hat is gone (previous version was rejected because it looked like Merlin the Magician) and the face and body are being redone.  Don't you just hate it when you ask someone "What do you think?" and they tell you the truth?

Your trivia question for the day: Name the Seven Dwarves.

Sneezy, Dopey, Doc, Sleepy, Bashful, Grumpy, Happy (had to look him up) probably because I've been "grumpy" lately.

I'm better with Santa's reindeer or the Seven Acre Woods residents.

I could have come up with them :)
Bashful is my favourite!
I don't see a problem with looking like Dopey though.... or Merlin....
