Today I wanted to send out a reminder that our July DVD sale is nearing a close. July 31, 2012 is the last day to save $10 on three of our popular DVD titles, including the one from which today’s bonus Wednesday video is excerpted: Expanding Your Creative Palette with Colored Clay.
In this clip, Curt Benzle gives tips on making colored clays from scratch. Glaze isn’t the only tool for adding color to your ceramic work. Mixing the color right into the clay is a really cool alternative. I have to admit, I haven’t dabbled much in this technique because it seemed like an such an effort to make the colored clay. But, as Curt explains, it is really not that bad, especially if you set yourself up with a segmented plaster drying bat. Easy Peasy! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
