Making a Popcorn Bowl with Is part 2

By |May 25th, 2020|Categories: Creative Catalyst|Tags: , , , , , , |

Now that Is’ giant popcorn bowl has been fired in the kiln, she’s ready to add some colour.

First, Is shows us how to apply a wash of black underglaze to bring to life the delicate impressions left by the leaves and gumnuts used as decoration in Part 1. This wash will seep into all the tiny cracks and indents. Is also uses underglaze to decorate the bottom of her bowl with a pattern that complements the natural design on the inside.

What kind of patterns can you create using the same theme?

Finally, Is adds a layer of blue glaze before returning the bowl to the kiln. When it comes back it will be lovely and shiny, and ready to be filled with popcorn!

Rai’s Musical Moments: Learning the Guitar

Have you got an old guitar lying around at home that is covered in dust? Have you ever wanted to lead a campfire singalong? Rai has the tutorial for you!

Just as with the Ukelele, learning the guitar is simply a matter of learning how to pin down the strings to the frets with one hand while strumming with the other. Rai shows us a few regularly used chords and takes us through some folk tunes to practice.
