Hi, buddies! My students are wrapping up just one of the clay jobs they developed and I believed I might share. Past yr, my very first via fourth established clay mugs and it was quickly everyone’s beloved clay project. When I shared that we were working with clay yet again, a several weeks back, their initially query was “are we producing mugs once again?!” I experienced currently planned on it…so they were being fired up to listen to the reply. The moment mugs are total, we celebrate by ingesting sizzling chocolate out of them…so it’s a whole great deal of exciting.
This yr, I made a video clip to share with them. Due to the fact I have 30 minute artwork courses, I only confirmed the pinch pot portion and a bit of coil earning for the to start with class. The 2nd course, we did a quick coil earning reminder and then viewed the portion about making a take care of. The online video helped them trouble shoot and get their mugs finished in just two 30 minute lessons!
This 7 days, we commenced glazing! They had been told they could use any two shades of glaze, one particular for the inside of and 1 for the outside the house. They were being to do at minimum three coats of their picked out colors and not to glaze the bottom. The moment complete, they could be part of me at the splatter glaze station!
When my learners were completed glazing, they could assistance a good friend or work on the big banners I designed to announce our impending art present!
We utilised Prang’s Creative imagination Avenue Tempera Sticks to color these with.
The glaze we utilized are from two companies and I like them both of those: Mayco’s Stroke and Coat and Amaco’s Teacher’s Palette. Equally are food safe and fireplace to cone 06.
