Product Details

Further Detail
We will start this project by experimenting with small samples to learn the powder and crackle technique and experiment with colour combinations. We will use the microwave to create these sample pieces to give us instant results. Once familiar with the techniques involved we will create a larger piece which will go through two firing processes in a kiln. If you wish you can experiment further by using stencils and powder printing on your crackled effect.

You will leave with small samples that can be used for jewellery pieces and a lovely bowl or platter with a very unique and unusual quality. Please note that the larger pieces will be taken away to be fired in a kiln and returned for collection.
