Clay Faces!

That's me with the go-t...hangin' out with my students!! My 4th graders made clay self portraits a couple weeks ago. They were so excited this past week to get them back to paint!! If you aren't a person in the know about takes a few days for the clay to air dry....then you have to fire it in the kiln(which takes about 7 hrs or so). I didn't want to fire the kiln till all my 4th grade classes had completed the there was a delay in the painting of the faces. You could use a glaze & refire them, but I opted to have my students use acrylic paint.
