Melt Away Winter, Glaze An Oil Diffuser!
Arts & DIY
Melt away the winter by glazing an oil diffuser! Each diffuser is made from ceramic and is ready for color. I will be demonstrating a marbleizing and drip technique to add curiosity and mystery into your project!
The next day I will fire your diffuser in a kiln that reaches 1800 degrees. It will be so exciting to unwrap your shiny, bright original work!
Materials & Supplies:
Ceramic Oil Diffuser with space for a votive candle and a well for oil/wax. 4.25" x 4.5"
Food Safe Gloss Glazes
Paint Brushes and sponges for glaze application, design materials, stencils, pencils, etc.
NO artistic ability required! If you can imagine it, I can help you create it! You may bring photos for inspiration, or use the stencils and materials I have available to create your design. Glazes are a solution of ground up glass mixed with a liquid binder so they can be applied in a "painterly" fashion. They can also be marbleized, splattered, or used for outlining. It's truly an awesome material!
After Firing, the finished product will be shipped to you; this is included in the class fee.
