Nikki Mizak – Watercolor Style Underglaze Illustrations

Hi, I’m Nikki Mizak, and in this workshop I will be showing you how I create these wonderful underglaze illustrations.

We will go over everything from what kind of underglazes to use, what kind of brushes, how to make sure your brush work is fine enough, and then how to illustrate a chicken.

For this workshop, I will be using:

  • A Bisqued mug – Porcelain – but you can use any clay.
  • Underglazes – I use Amaco – but you can use any underglaze.
  • Brushes – I use a variety of brush shapes and sizes.

    • The workshop and the Q&A are recorded, and you will have lifetime access to it. You can watch it online, or download it to your device to watch offline at any time

About Nikki Mizak

I create functional pottery that I hope brings happiness, beauty, and something special to everyday life. I enjoy those quiet moments in the morning before the kids are awake and the world starts to stir. I like to make pottery that fills those moments with discovery and a little touch of luxury, whether it’s running my fingers over the slip-trailed lines on a detailed mug or admiring the strokes on a hand-painted pitcher for pouring syrup on French toast.

Although on the surface it may seem like I feature animals because they are “cute”, I feature them in order to honor them. Farm animals like chickens are a large portion of my work because I want to showcase a side of them that many people don’t see. Chicken trucks packed from top to bottom with dirty, white birds drive past my house every day, and the sadness lingers longer than the odor. I want to show that animals like these chickens are more than ingredients tightly packed in plastic and polystyrene foam. I enjoy trying to capture their personalities, their curious yet judgmental eyes, and the way their beautiful feathers beg to be painted.

Shows the complete process

The instructor did a great job demonstrating the process of layering the underglaze to build up the figure without getting the paint too thick. I would love to see the list of underglaze colors she used in the demo listed specifically under the materials for the class.

Great Class

I enjoyed learning how to paint and use underglaze with watercolors. I loved watching her paint the chicken.
