I am so sorry I have not blogged in a while. I have been so busy with school. I just finished AP Exams and took the SAT last Saturday. I am currently in the week of finals and I have the ACT this upcoming Saturday. I’ve been extremely busy and stressed but i decided to take a break!
I am so excited for this tutorial! My dear friend, Allie (aka allietheunicorn) and I decided that we wanted to buy real rooster feathers as hair extension! They look pretty fabulous!
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!
I want to do so many things with my blog. I want to DIY and do reviews and post pictures and all that jazz but i don’t have a camera!!! My camera broke and i feel like i fail at blogging. 😦
I need to save money to buy one but i already use the money i work to get for school, bills, and i’m trying to save for a car. Money just keeps on slipping away. Maybe i’ll get a car in 5 years at this rate and a camera in 7 😛
