Hello all: My school just start this "SMART" program. In case you haven't
heard of it yet, look out it is heading to a school near you. "SMART" stands
for Stimulating Maturity thru Accelerated Readiness Training. Do any of
you have any ideas for closing for the art teachers

>&gt;Greetings Leah,
>&gt;
>&gt;Amaco makes a number of food safe/kid safe glazes. Check your art
>&gt;supply catalogs. All catalogs have them clearly marked.
>&gt;
>&gt;Here is some information about their glazes:
>&gt;http://www.sheffield-pottery.com/Amaco_Glazes_Usage_and_Safety_Information_s/337.htm
>&gt;
>&gt;Here is a complete 47 page pdf file:
>&gt;http://www.amaco.com/pdfs/C5.pdf
>&gt;You can order a free copy:
>&gt;http://www.amaco.com/php/grouphome1.php?catID=63&amp;GROUP_ID=7&amp;CATEGORY_ID=63&amp;TITLE_NAME=Product%20Encyclopedia
>&gt;
>&gt;Some of the LG series are not food safe. All of the F series are safe
>for food.
>&gt;
>&gt;I have had good luck with all F series glazes.
