Matisse Underglaze Applique
by AMACO brent
Using Matisse as our inspiration, we will cut sheets of underglaze newsprint to applique colorful designs on a slab of clay. Video demonstrations include application of underglaze to newsprint sheets, and the cutting and designing of applique composition. Tips include how to successfully transfer images to clay slabs & form a finished piece.
Brush on one even coat of each of each of the Velvet underglaze colors onto a newsprint (minimum 8x10).
Allow the 3 sheets of different colored underglaze sheets of newsprint to dry.
Roll out a moist slab of clay (larger than the paper plate) and cover it with plastic.
