English Class sixth graders used small amounts of tempera paint mixed together with white chalk paint to finish their fired clay heart boxes. The lovely textures and details of the boxes really popped with the application of the chalky pastel paint mixture. The next step will be to apply a transparent polish to seal the surface of the boxes.
English Class third graders used the same treatment for finishing their coiled hearts. After polish has been applied to seal the hearts, the third graders will make wire and glass bead hangers for their hearts. The hearts will be completed after the winter break which is during week 8. Check in with us here on the blog to see the completed hearts.
