I will be honest. Since our school doesn't have a kiln on campus, I haven't done glazing till this year. I drive clay projects to the high school to get fired, and there is so much labor and accidents driving to and from the schools that I have given myself a pass on glazing. Until now. This year I ordered glazes in our school supply order and I wanted to see how they would turn out. The students from previous classes had used acrylic before to paint their ceramics so they were super thrilled with the shiny results.
They all turned out wonderfully (no explosions!!) but I especially love the student on the bottom rights creativity naming his gnome, Sylvester Stagnome... seriously amazing.
What about you, do you have a kiln at your school? What are your favorite glazes to use?
