All you’ll need is clay, a popsicle stick, a fettling knife, and a dull pencil….
Make a sugar skull ceramic planter:
For my sample, I will paint colorful glazes into my designs, wipe off any excess glaze that gets on the surface, and cover the whole thing with a clear glaze for a white skull (since we’re using white clay). If you don’t have a kiln, you can use air dry clay, paint, and Mod Podge to create a similar, colorful effect!
Below are a few pics of our finished projects! You can use the same texturing techniques to make the plate. For glazing, we painted black glaze over the whole thing, then wiped it off with a sponge, so it only remained in the “nooks and crannies”. Then we added colored glazes and painted a clear glaze where we just wanted the white of the clay to show but still be shiny.
