two magi…

Well, the two Magi that I created out of clay before the holidays didn't make it through the kiln unscathed as I suspected they wouldn't. The larger one was off kilter and leaning towards the back a bit. He is balanced but just barely and his beard had a crack in it and the little one lost his beard altogether during the firing. Sooo… I filled in the crack of the big guy's beard with gesso and let it dry and affixed a piece of foam to the back of him to give him better balance. And then I painted both of them with acrylic paints. They won't receive the second firing they would have gotten had they been glazed with colors normally but I am very happy with the way they turned out and hope to create a third Magi one of these days when I have the time and inspiration to do so! 100_0729
