|We'll smooth over the hole at the left...|
Today, we made our sale item for the Holiday Fair. We're going to sell these little pots with succulents planted in them. We also made an extra one for each student, so that they can give it as a present. The students really liked working with the Navajo Wheel clay, they commented on how easy it was to mold. It is pretty soft and pliable, that's why it's my clay of choice. The only trouble with this clay body, is that it stains clothes. I have many a shirt to prove it. And, some pants, too… But, the kids did a pretty good job of keeping it contained.
Our next step, after the bisque firing, is to try using some wax resist. I'm wondering if using crayon to make stripes and polka dots would work. I bought some matte green and red glaze to decorate the exteriors of the pots, when the time comes.
|Uh oh, not enough tubs to carry them home...|
|Packing them up in the trunk...|
|Safe in the garage, soon to be covered with plastic...|
