This is one of my favorite projects because every one loves them, everyone is successful and it is easy! We start by quickly learning about Capodimonte Porcelain and then I demonstrate how to create the flowers (see these step by step directions). Then we get to work...
They build them, they dry, I fire them, they paint them, I varnish them (Sargent Art Acrylic Gloss Medium and Varnish from Nasco...1 gallon has lasted me 2 years and I still have a lot left over) and then they take them home.

So beautiful and so rewarding! One of my few repeats from year to year.
