This three hour workshop will give you first-hand knowledge on how to successfully use underglazes as you are guided with step-by-step instructions on a variety of application techniques as well as carving techniques ranging from simple to intricate using Diamondcore Tools.

By the end of this workshop, you will cover the following:

  • UG consistency: the importance of sieving

  • Application

  • Troubleshooting

  • When you can and cannot apply UG

  • Washes and wiping back with texture

  • Gradient

  • Paper resist

  • Diamondcore tools

  • Mishima

  • Sgraffito

  • Layering sgraffito and underglaze

  • Watercolour effect 

  • Squeeze bottle application

Supplies you should have for the workshop if you want to work along with demonstrations:

  1. Underglazes (any colours you want in addition to black and white).  

  2. Small brushes (Tuck shop set - includes fine detail sgraffito tool).

  3. Henna plastic squeeze bottles (purchased from guild Tuck Shop, Amazon, dollar store).

  4. Your pieces could be small flat pieces such as coasters (set of 8 would be best).  Some techniques can be combined on to one piece. Four leather hard pieces smoothed with sponge ready for underglaze application (such as a mug, small vase, trivet, small rice bowl, small plate).

  5. One bisque piece (with texture of your choice).   

  6. Tucker’s wax resist if you would like to try Mishima.  Another brand is Mr. Marks’s Wax ON (carried by Sounding Stone); PSH wax does not work for this.

  7. Turntable, banding wheel, lazy Susan, decorating wheel, or microwave turntable.

  8. Palette for mixing your underglazes.
