Craquele glaze? Glaze for sculptures? Do you wanna make it your self and deepen your ceramichobby?
Making glazes is full of possibilities.
Do you wanna learn how to make your own high fire glazes, and to understand better how the ceramic color surface is formed? At this course we are learning how to make glazes in practice and also how to tint the glaze base with non-ferrous metal oxide. During the course we try a couple different glaze bases, that the group can select together from different options. During the day we also get to know patina and how use under glazes. We also go through with course participants their problems with glazing and try to consider some solutions to it.
