Raku Success!

The stoneware clay worked wonderfully.  I'm quite pleased with the results but I do think I'll try a run with only 2 coats of glaze. Some of the colors were supposed to be matte but came off with very glossy surface, still very pretty.  Going to try to fire more birds tonight and hope they will survive. This hedgehog has been glazed with Mayco  matte copper. I glazed the face with a clear so you can see the pretty stoneware clay beneath. I also went with newspaper and was happier with the results because there is less matter burned onto the surface of the beads.
I'm still working things out but I'm much closer to where I'd like to be!
