It did indeed. Never a color combo I would have come up with, but couldn't think of a better one seeing ti all together :D

Thanks :) Me neither!
The colour combination was an accidental discovery on another frog that was supposed to be speckled lighter green with darker green patches. However, the reaction between the colours in the firing gave this happy accident - so I tried it again to see if it was consistent... I like a lot (and so do my customers) :D

I do agree it came out wonderfully. What glazes did you use because it looks more like you have added a thin paint to the clay afterwards.

It is a semi-matt green mottled glaze on top of another colour that it reacts with. The matt grey/brown/blackish patches are the result of the reaction. The first time I did it I wasn't expecting that result but it was a nice surprise :)

At the moment I can't afford to trade him but I like some of your work so maybe in the future we could trade something :)

This little froggy costs 60 euros.
