I have this idea, I do not know it is possible, to use the stones or the
colored "stones" they put in the bottom of the aquariums, perhaps one day
when I will go to Beer Sheva,and remember I shall buy minimum amount and
will try ,to fire it. I hope that these are not plastics.

Subject: foam glaze cone 5/6
I have been looking at suggestions for glaze recipes and at Ababi's web site
for a solution to creating a foamy looking tile like a wave on a beach.
This morning I had an idea to put sand in a plastic box and press marbles,
beads, and small styrofoam balls into the sand more than half-way to look
like bubbles. I mixed a batch of plaster of paris and poured it over the
top carefully to make a mold. Aren't I brilliant! Oh yes! UNTIL the
styrofoam and plastic beads all popped up to float on the top! I can't
believe how stupid I was not to think that through.
Any suggestions to where to find 4-5 different sizes of non-floating
