I loved the colors on this one from the beginning and tried to keep it throughout the process. You may notice some little designs here and there stamped into the paint. I made some stamps to be used in my ceramic pieces based on some clocks I made a few years ago and sized them wrong, but decided to see what would happen here, and I loved it so added the design into many of subsequent pieces.

|Painted, peeled, sanded, painted again.|
|Vinyled, painted, peeled, sanded.|
|Painted, peeled, sanded again.|
At this point I decided I was done with the background and wanted to add the final layer of permanent orzos.
