Smoking a horse

It was exciting to put my first ceramic horse into the flames.  I had put shoe polish, some ochre acrylic paint, and Johnson's paste wax on the bisqued piece.  It needed something, and I remembered reading that heat would set the colors.  So onto the grill it went.  Then more wax and a good buffing.

I'm liking this finish.
