FAQ/Answer

I don't want to teach, so why would I want to be certified?

There is a greater demand for classes than there are teachers and places to learn. When you take a certification class to teach, not only do you get the recognition of being a certified teacher and a 35% discount off the clay, but you learn many techniques for working with the clay. By the end of certification you learn how to work with the paste, syringe and clay. You learn how to roll the clay out to a uniform thickness, add texture, and make bails. You learn how to get the shiny mirror finish, add CZs prior to firing, and set gemstones into the settings that you have placed in your piece. You learn how to work with Overlay Paste on glossy and non-porous surfaces like porcelain, glazes and glass. You learn how to work with cork clay and how to mix dichroic glass cabs with silver clay. You learn how to embed wire and place pins into your piece prior to firing. You even learn how to make two types of rings--flat band and round band. By the time you finish with certification classes, you really know how to work with the clay, fire it (kiln and torch), and color it with Liver of Sulphur.
