Even Scarier After Raku!

My new set of 3 Japanese themed demon masks. This was how they turned out after today's raku firing, Cone 06.

I used a clear crackle glaze on all three pieces. Some areas have more crackling than others. The darkening around the eyes make them look even scarier. I decided not to clean them up too much.

They should scare away evil spirits, maybe, even unwanted solicitors from your house. I don't think I want to meet any of them in a dark alley!

HI Dallas,
Glad you are enjoying them. Yes, they do look kind of metallic, esp. around the eyes and nose.
Hope you are doing well.
