Gotta love that mustache.
We're just finishing up our clay unit at school, and I must admit it's one of my favorites. With each class I demo the process and always end up with some great exemplars.
I use acrylic paint instead of ceramic glazes because I love adding layers of color.
When I'm finished painting the piece it is sprayed with a high gloss fixative.
Today I shared these two characters with the students. Most of the students think I'm crazy and can't understand why I made that guy so Ugly! I tried to tell them that its all about the TEXTURE and they had to admit, the guy has great taste in hats. he he They just shook their heads and laughed, "Mrs. Maggio you're to funny!"
