Making Brushes

My advanced class of students had a lot of fun today making some very simple natural bristle paint brushes.  It was a primer on how to do it - now thay can go hog wild with other matierials. 

I supplied- bristle, bamboo, glue and cord. My little hack saw came from the hardware store. We also made some sponge on a stick tools.

You always need a little Chemistry- How's your Glaze

Here's a little quick video about measuring your glaze thickness.  It's not so much about which way you measure, but more about being consistent. I want my blue to be the same blue I know and love. It's sensitive to being too thick or thin so I am always on top of my Specific Gravity.
