Join me, Alison Lee, and Pam East LIVE ONLINE Wednesday, November 6th at 7:00 pm ET, and create wonderful holiday gifts this year!

Ceramic ornaments and other novelties are fun and easy to embellish with innovative Art Clay Silver Overlay Paste! Pam will provide sourcing for both pre-fired bisque and pre-glazed porcelain if ceramics and/or glazing is not your thing. The class will show you how to get great color with low fire Amaco glazes. Learn how to create silver embellishment using silver clay, paste and syringes.

Then make it all pop with patinas and polishing. Your friends and family will be amazed at these unique holiday treasures!

AND during the LIVE class, Pam will take questions from attendees!!
