If you flip through your Sax or Dick Blick catalog, you will find over 12 pages filled with a variety of different glazes made by different companies. You can find over 30 yellow glazes, 33 red glazes, and 83 blue glazes. The glazes drastically vary in price depending on the brand and color. As we all know, glaze is one of the most expensive items we purchase for our classrooms.
Like many other art teachers, I have a very limited art budget. The first year I taught at my current school, I couldn’t afford to purchase glaze. It wasn’t until the second year that I had enough supplies saved up so I could afford to buy glaze. Naturally I searched through the school supply catalogues for the most inexpensive glaze I could find. I accepted that I might need to search for quantity over quality. I stumbled across what is now my favorite economical glaze: Amoco Teacher’s Palette Glaze
Here are 6 reasons why I love Teacher’s Palette Glaze.
You can’t go wrong with buying Amoco Teacher’s Palette glazes. They’re inexpensive, come in a variety of sizes, are easy to mix, and produce beautiful colors. Be sure to add them to your supply list next year!
