Sgraffito

I have always admired people who have the patience to make sgraffito pieces. It's a whole different sport and I decided to give it a try with a small plate. As you can see I didn't end up "scraffiting" my initial drawing, that will go on something else. Also  the plate became a bit more oval. But I'm quite happy with how my lemons turned out. Yes, it's a lemon tree branch on the plate...

And I must say this technique where you literally dig the image out of the colour is oddly addicting. It's somehow very zen... I haven't yet decided if I REALLY like this technique or if it will remain just an occasional therapy session.
