I thought it would be fun to share a nice and easy little ceramics project…ceramic plant markers.
Roll out the clay about 3/8 inch thick and cut into 1″ strips. Of course, you can make any shape you like, but this is what I chose to do.
Press letters and any decoration you like into the cut strips.
Here’s the finished wet clay plant markers.
Fire the markers.
After the first firing, now it’s time to glaze. I chose to paint on black underglaze over the impressions and then wipe them off to reveal the letters better. Then I dipped the ends in different color glazes. Here’s what that looks like:
Once fired, it’s complete! I think these make super cute gifts and will probably be offering them in our giftshop! I’ll be playing with variations as well.
If you have access to a ceramics studio, give it a try!
