Art teachers are always looking for the next best way to sort our assortment of clay supplies. Yes, I get a little giddy when things are neatly organized, and it brings me great pride when students mention how these organizational tidbits work well and make everyone’s life in the art room that much easier.
I got the idea because when it came time to glaze, no one ever knew what “Firecracker” or “Amber” would actually look like. Glaze tiles solve this problem. In addition, if you attach the glaze tiles directly to the glaze containers, it makes everything even easier!
Voila! No more glaze color confusion! Students will know exactly what the finished glaze color will look like, and so will you.
I buy the glaze color in both pint and gallon sizes. I use the pint-sized jars with students and refill them with the glaze from the gallon jugs when needed. It saves a little extra money to order in bulk sizes.
Creating glaze tiles is a great way to help students choose the right colors for their project and a great way to help you organize stay organized!
How do you label glazes for students to use in the art room?
