I guess it's called mono-printing on clay.  Well, however you refer to it, I've been spending a lot of time experimenting.   I made a Youtube video.  It's 7 minutes, kind of long and I say "um" a lot.   Hope you enjoy.
Making Underglaze and Colored Slip Newsprint Transfers - Monoprinting on Clay - YouTube

One of the things I love about pottery is that there is always something to learn.   New techniques are inspiring and can bring freshness to the making  process. My latest inspiration has been mono printing on clay.  I adore the big reveal. Peeling back the news print revealing The reverse designed image.  It’s pretty cool.  I had a lot of fun figuring it all out.

I pulled the finished pieces from the kiln this morning.  The underglaze colors changed quite a bit.  The bright colors were darker and the pinks faded and tinged toward brown.  They weren’t terrible, but it's well known that most underglaze and mason stains do best at low fire temps.  This technique is most often used with low-fire brown or red clay.   Regardless, I'm rock'n it with my mid-fire porcelain blend.
I hope all of you bloggers and blog readers are happy and well.  Love to all.
