I did another dog plate- and this time got paid! haha. I never got to see the plate finished- my coworker took a picture of it with her phone when she opened the kiln, and then my friend I did it for came and picked it up that day (for her mom's birthday. Deadlines deadlines!). So, sorry (to you and me both!) that I don't have a better (and straight-on) picture of it- it's just that phone pic.
This one took me quite a bit longer. There was more pressure- maybe that's why. The other one took maybe an hour and this one probably took 5.
