Copper Red

Easy answer for a stupid question....

Who the hell would be so stupid as to start mixing a copper red without first checking that there was any copper in their studio?

Hi Keith
Greetings from England. It's so easy to forget the most fundamental things when there are so many other things to try and remember.
Good to find you.
Cheers
Doug

First off...Doug, Thanks for checking in over here. I've enjoyed following your blog and it's nice to see you over here.

Lucky for me, my friend Dave Robinson is another potter in town and he scored a ton of materials from when he retired from teaching high school. He is, like all potters, reliable in a pinch. All it took was a quick phone call and I was over scooping out some copper into a container to bring home.

Brandon, good thinking on the talc...I hope it works.
