New Technique with Pine Ash
I have been experimenting with a stain "Matsubai," which is pure pine ash. After a few trials on test tiles, the ash was sprayed on these vessels and fired in a smoky oxygen-deprived environment. As I am pleased with the results, I intend to try the stains on my new figurines.

Congratulations. How fun and interesting to come up with something new and different — and find out it works! And is really cool.

Sorry for this late reply. Yes, new experiments are fun. I'm already giving thoughts how to improve the result. That's what's fun about this medium.

Thank you for your comment. My experiment with wood ash is still at a toddler's stage. In the next experiment, I'm going to give a tiny amount of oxygen, hoping it will enhance the color of iron. Thanks again.
