After your terracotta sculpture is fired or cast in plaster, a surface patina must be applied to complete the piece. Please bring one or several sculptural objects ready to be colored. Each piece will be discussed as to which patina would work best, as there will be several finishes to choose from. The finishes will range from dark to light, mostly based on the base coat of paint with layering of colored wax. An alternative for a glaze finish on terracotta, or to simulate a bronze finish on a plaster cast, this is a perfect workshop for all levels. Please see supply list on website.
