Red Hat Society International Convention August 2-5, 2018


You can put on your red hats and travel to a nearby ceramic studio, or host your craft day at home, depending on what kind of atmosphere you desire. As long as you and your sisters have red hats and accessories, ceramics will be fun anywhere. Search Google maps to find art studios that offer ceramic painting and classes in your area. If you are planning on holding the event at a sisters home, you can order ceramic pieces online at discounted prices.

With working at a studio, you will be fortunate enough to have all the materials available at your leisure. Otherwise, here are some of the basic tools you will need for painting and finishing your ceramic projects.
  • Paper towels
  • Newspaper
  • Red Hat Aprons
  • Assorted Hobby Paintbrushes
  • Assorted Acrylic Paints
  • Styluses
  • Ceramic Finishing Sprays
  • Clear Ceramics Glazes
  • Sponges
  • Ceramics Cleaning Tools-scraping tools
  • Ceramics Texture Tools
Now that you have gathered all of the necessary materials, you are ready to begin crafting.

Step 1: Clean your greenware, or unfired pottery, with sponges and a scrapping tool to clear seam lines created by the mold.

Step 2: Once your greenware is clean, you are ready to apply the acrylic paint. This may take up to three coats. It is normal for the colors to look pale at first. Once the item is fired at your local ceramic shop, the vibrant colors will project through.

Step 3: Apply glaze. Once again, three coats is recommended. Do not be alarmed if your artwork appears to be covered and hidden by the glaze. Once fired, shine and depth will enhance the previous colors.

Step 4: Enjoy! Your ceramic item is ready for display or use.
