If you are in ceramics and or like this kind of stuff, it’s extremely fun! My idea came from being aggravated at my cups for taking sooo long to make so I took an easier route and decided to experiment with glazes. Glazes are a special kind of paint that when fired at hot temperatures, seal and protect the clay to be used ( in this case, the cups can have liquids in them and you won’t get poisoned!
On to the cups! If you have a pre-made cup, good for you! If you don’t, then you take a slab and blend it into a cylinder and add a bottom to it and blend that on and then a handle! If I could, I would take pictures but it’s awkward to do that at school!
After you fire the clay, You put on a base coat of whatever color you want (I used Mardi Gras which is a white with pebbles of blue that explode to get a splatter like effect) and after, you take a bunch of different colored glazes and dip a paintbrush in water and then in the glaze and splatter it all over the cup! ( In some cases, you need to flick the paintbrush with your finger).
You then fire it again to get to this amazing product!
The colors are much brighter in person but i am extremely proud of these!
I love being creative and this is just me sharing one idea to you all!
