Introduction: Bubble Glazing Technique
If you don't use under-glaze, you don't need to coat your piece with clear glaze.
Bisque fired object, underglaze, clear glaze, soap, water, cup, straw, and a paper plate
Step 1: Bisque Fired Object
Coat your ceramics pieces with a light underglaze.
Step 2: Mix!
Pump 2 squirts of hand soap, 3 spoons of water, and 1 spoon of any underglaze color into a cup. Mix together!
Step 3: Blowing Bubbles
Place your bisque fired item in a container. Put a straw in the cup and blow into it to make bubbles. Allow the bubbles to overflow onto your piece.
Tip: Slow blowing will give you larger bubbles. Fast blowing will give smaller bubbles.
Step 4: Pop!
Once the bubbles are placed to your liking carefully begin to blow on them to make them pop.
Step 5: Clear Glaze
Once the bubbles have dried coat your piece with clear glaze to get a shiny finish. Let your piece go through the kiln. Here are some examples.
