This was a difficult piece to make. The red background is just 2030 over copper and fired at 1500 degrees for 45 seconds. The scale adhered nicely. I used a paper mask cut in the cats shape as a mask over the red. I sifted orange into the cat voids in the mask and fired for the second time. Over that I silk screened the cat forms which wasn't a very good screen so I over glazed the black to enhance the screen image, added the yellow eyes and fired at 1350 degrees for one minute.
