|The lighting was a bit strange, so the colors are not true.|
Take a look at the other photos which were taken by a window and have more natural light.
|Our leaves were closer to these colors.|
|I think they will make pretty spoon rests for Thanksgiving. |
|We used lead-free glaze. :)|
|The maroon came out more like a light purple and the orange came out green!|
|Here is our big, bad kiln.|
|This was my first view of the leaves in the kiln this morning.|
|Here are the leaves right after I removed them |
from the kiln. The incandescent lighting
gave them a yellowish tone.
The children will wrap them up and take them home as Thanksgiving gifts for their families.
I ordered the same glazes as last year, yet the leaves turned out so much brighter and the colors turned out to look very different last year:
|Last year the same glazes came out of the kiln as maroon, golden, and orange.|
So, let me know what you think about our autumn spoon rests.
Are you doing any fun projects with your little ones this month?
Please post in the comment section. :)
Tomorrow, I'll post about how to plan a simple, yet fun
Thanksgiving feast to have with your students.
