In a nutshell:
- Put one color of glaze on each table
- Match the glaze color to your table color if possible
- Put brushes directly into the glaze (genius!!!)
- Keep a piece of paper under your pot at all times – even when switching tables. This keeps your hands cleaner.
- Carry pot from table to table to change colors
- Brushes stay at their tables
In addition to the brushes, I put skewers directly into the glaze bottles. The students used the skewers to dot eyes or spots onto their animal pots. Skewers allow more control than my brushes. I have also used the skewers to scratch lines into the glaze.
- Easy set up – no water! No little cups of glaze.
- Easy clean up – wipe the glaze bottle rims and recap.
- No color contamination (note – I was anxious and kept a sharp eye on the white glaze. It stayed clean through three classes!)
- No waste!!!!
