NEW DAY WITH RAKU WORKSHOP

August 5th, 2018, 9:00 am
ACAI Studios, Fair Oaks

Infused Mica Techniques Workshop: This one-day workshop will introduce participants to techniques for using mica powders as coloring agents for raku pieces. Cosmetic grade mica powders can be added to terra sigillata or sodium silicate to give a raku piece a unique and colorful look. Raku techniques that can use mica include; sodium silicate, naked raku, horsehair raku, post fire reduction, and foil saggar raku. In this workshop, participants will be able to fire mica infused terra sigillata pots using horsehair, post fire reduction, and foil saggar techniques.

Sodium silicate and naked raku techniques will be demonstrated.

Cost is only $150.00 for non-ACAI Studio members.

HORSEHAIR

Raku

This is one of the techniques that I want to master. Being a horsewoman, the thought of having a memorial vessel using horsehair from my beloved horse is a blessing and a treasure.
