Look at the amazing pieces that came out of the kiln !
The first Sunday workshop Anitta taught the participants how to make pieces using the slab technique. T his is a technique where one uses a rolling pin - its just like baking. Afterwards the different pieces are cemented together with "glue" and a little bit of work to make sure that they don't come apart. They are left to dry for 2 weeks then fired in the kiln.
The second Sunday the pieces were glazed. Anitta came with recipes for matt and shiny finishes. Everyone could chose how to finish of their piece - and here you can see the results.
A collection of fun birds
The other piece that was made the first Sunday was a square pot. People started from the same patern - but the end results were very different. Some going for a totally matt finish - others opted for a shiny finish - and some for a mix.

2018 we're in the Chinese year of the rooster. The experts say that
"the year of the Rooster will be a powerful one, with no middle of the
road when it comes to moving forward. This year, impressions count.
You’ll want to look your best and be clear on your intentions concerning
love, money, and business. Stick to practical and well-proven paths to
ensure success, rather than risky ventures." In other words - be careful
out there while wearing something smart!
Aquarellistas let themselves be inspired by this proud and beautifully
dressed bird. Have a look at the different styles and note that all
pictures have so much character!! For more watercolours subscribe to the Aquarellistablog
