Capodimonte Roses

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.
(check them all out at artsonia)

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