Day 18 Glass Powder Sgraffito Challenge

A second try at this weekend's challenge of creating light colored items in the negative space.  The subjects for today are two sea shells we found on the beach at Tori Station in Okinawa.  I had quite a bit of trouble shading for texture and shading for 3-d at the same time, but I'm working on it. I used light peach glass and black powder.  Tools used were my larger sifter, a business card, a scraper from a scrathboard kit, a wax carver's pointy tool and a q-tip.
