Pricing for Finishes

Slip Glazing – After the students have finished building their projects, they can apply a special finish called “slip glaze” on their wet clay projects. This is a natural clay, water and stain mixture with the consistency of a batter. The students will “paint” various colours of slip glaze on their projects. Our instructor will provide step by step instructions and all of the required materials. The student projects will then be returned to our studio, dried, fired in our kilns, dipped in clear glaze and re-fired in the kilns. The finished project is a beautifully glazed ceramic piece of pottery with a hard, shiny finish that is ready for immediate display.
Cost is $3/piece.

Traditional glazes – Our instructors will dry the projects, dip them into a bucket of CfK house made glaze (green or brown) then they will fire the pieces. This will result in a more traditional pottery look.
Cost is $2/piece

Prices for finishes and clay, 16 oz bottles $12/each:

  • Low odor gloss spray (must be used over paint)
  • Paint brush on water soluble high gloss varnish (use over bisque ware for high shine, comes in 8 oz bottle for $10)

As a rule of thumb, one can of finish covers approximately 25 student projects.
