  1. I adore these stands…. they each have their own personalities and for me I like to think of them as dessert stands too… I can’t wait until next week… I have 10 I want to make before the beach trip.

    Have you had the cupcake stands at any of your shows yet? I have to believe that these would do well.

    Are you using under glazes on these as well?

    • I love the idea of dessert stands – all desserts should be served on pedestals!

      The black lines on the lime stand and the dots on the pink stand were done with underglaze. Underglazes are excellent for embellishment.

  2. Did you put the underglaze on top of the glaze or underneath? If underneath, do you put wax on it? I hope you guys are doing well!

    • Thanks for asking. The underglaze is applied to pots that are leather-hard or bone dry. Then the pots are bisque-fired. This way the underglaze doesn’t smear. This process works best with a clear or translucent glaze. If the glaze is dark or opaque, just wax the underglazed areas prior to glazing.
