Glazes work magic on 3D graphics
They enhance texture, add depth and make things a lot more interesting

Last issue we showed several name plaques we have created for the participants of our workshops through the years. While they were a great take home gift for our guests, they were also a wonderful way for us to develop our painting methods through the years.
Every project we do in our shop uses these same painting techniques. The only difference is the scale. But no matter how good or conﬁdent you may be, it’s always best to do small practice pieces ﬁrst before tackling something large. Get your techniques and color combinations nailed before moving on to the big stuff.
Even after doing more than two hundred name plaques we still do small sample pieces for almost every large project we tackle. These samples also serve as a reference and standard for staff members, which ensures a consistent ﬁnish.
