[teacherartexchange] Finishes for clay


Date: Fri Apr 20 2007 - 07:15:59 PDT

I was hoping for a few ideas. My kiddos have fallen in love with clay this
year - to the point that they're even recycling it themselves. The
projects just keep getting better and better. Unfortunately, my supply of
glaze is just about gone, and I have NO money (I'm totally broke - no $ in
either the school account or my own personal bank account) to buy
additional glaze this year. It's a shame to me that these last few
projects - the best ones yet - aren't going to get glazed.

I've had a couple of kids try painting them w/ acrylic paints, but they
wind up looking uber-cheesy.

Suggestions for good ways to finish off these projects? Most aren't
food/water vessels, so anything could be used. (I've reserved the
last little bits of glaze for the food vessel projects.)

I know this has been discussed previously, but I didn't pay attention to
the suggestions because I wasn't doing clay at the time. (Shame on me!!)
