Cassie Stephens: Clay Mugs for Kids!

Hi, close friends! My college students are wrapping up a person of the clay projects they developed and I believed I would share. Final year, my first by means of fourth produced clay mugs and it was easily everyone’s beloved clay undertaking. When I shared that we were being operating with clay all over again, a couple of weeks back, their to start with question was “are we earning mugs once more?!” I had currently prepared on it…so they were being excited to listen to the response. After mugs are comprehensive, we rejoice by ingesting incredibly hot chocolate out of them…so it is really a total great deal of entertaining. 

This calendar year, I produced a online video to share with them. Since I have 30 minute art courses, I only showed the pinch pot part and a little bit of coil earning for the very first course. The 2nd course, we did a quick coil earning reminder and then watched the portion about developing a take care of. The video served them difficulty shoot and get their mugs concluded in just two 30 minute classes!

This 7 days, we started glazing! They were informed they could use any two colors of glaze, 1 for the inside of and just one for the outdoors. They have been to do at minimum three coats of their chosen colours and not to glaze the base. As soon as full, they could be a part of me at the splatter glaze station!


When my college students had been completed glazing, they could assistance a buddy or operate on the massive banners I produced to announce our future artwork display! 


We employed Prang’s Creative imagination Road Tempera Sticks to color these with.

The glaze we made use of are from two corporations and I like them the two: Mayco’s Stroke and Coat and Amaco’s Teacher’s Palette. Each are food risk-free and fire to cone 06.
