The eyes are watching, always watchinhg....



Here are the eye bottles finished. I am liking the color, the crackles, the eyes.....but the shininess is a little too shiny? Is that possible? Too shiny......it seems almost like saying too much icing...As IF!
But I am saying it. Too Shiny.
Too much like candy. It makes the bottles look commercially made.
I would like to tone it down just a little.



Now the glaze on the eye box is one that I am in love with. I think it gives the eye design more depth and more creep...that is a creepy feel.

The glaze on the box is wonderful and just that single eye and the detail, really really NICE.

The eye box is awesome! Lots of creepy character. The long bottles are cool too. You can decide on the "shininess".

Personally, I like the shine. I don't get the feeling of the glaze being too commercial-looking.

Cool eye box!

Love you!

Love creepy eye box and it's unusual glaze...er, gaze.
Don't mind the shine on the tall quirky bottles but you know what is best for your work. Can you do anything about it?

Your tall "eye's are watching" are really cool, so different and must have been incredibly fun to make. (I don't think they are too shiny...) and I love the little box. Have a beautiful weekend! Roxanne

Oh Leanne, I think all of these pieces look fabulous! I love them all!

I know what you mean about being shiny - not that I think these bottles are too shiny, but sometimes I prefer a more matte finish on pieces too.

Thanks Ms. Jafa. This glaze just trips my trigger.

Thank you Bindu. Loving making eye boxes.

Hey Sister T. You rock! Miss you.

Robyn.
I can add clay...maybe Kaolin to help with the shininess. I am going to try it. I love the shiny on other things though...just not this shape.

Hey Roxanne. They were so much fun to make but really can creep me out sometimes. They do sort of watch you as you go about the day.

Thanks Un D!
I miss talking to you. We need to skype soon.
Maybe we can talk with Miss Haley.
Can you send your address to me again. I have some surprises for you.

They are all beautiful! I love candy. And these pieces are all eye-candy. I love the shiny. But I think they will be pretty anyway you decide to glaze them.

It's so neat how the little eye box gives you chills just by looking at it.

Love you and miss you!
