Learn How to Decorate a with Paper-Resist Glaze Patterns and More!

In this 2-hour workshop, Melissa Mencini will demonstrate how she makes and decorates a mug! After throwing the mug, Melissa will demonstrate how she creates paper-resist glaze patterns with a Silhouette cutting machine. You'll learn the tricks of glazing at leather hard so you can create all-over patterns and still attach handles, knobs, and spouts. She'll even cover her post firing techniques with commercial decals!

You'll also learn how to:

  • Throw a mug and decorate it with all-over stenciled patterning
  • Make stencils using a Silhouette cutting machine (plus other stencil-making techniques!)
  • Successfully attach handles on top of a glazed or already-decorated surface
  • Use basic design considerations to create a dynamic surface
  • Apply decals after firing to create interesting layered patterns
  • And much more!

Our Workshop from Home webinars are just like in-person workshops, except you are guaranteed a front-row seat! Ask questions throughout, or during the Question & Answer session at the end.

You'll also receive a link to the PDF resource document in your registration email that includes a list of Melissa's favorite tools, and helpful information about her decorating materials, and a bonus Pottery Making Illustrated article!
