Make and Take It!

After the Southern Stars retreat Duncan Enterprises hosted a "Make & Take It" (Where you make a featured project and then take it with you!) Everyone had so much fun!!! Check out the picture of one of our Duncan Ambassadors...his hair was created to match one of the other Duncan Ambassadors! She is very spunky and has a fun fresh spiky do! I think that David should sport this new do everyday!

Everyone was enjoying themselves while painting with Neon Envisions Glazes! I really LOVE this project! On a Duncan Oh Four Bisque Smooth Vase a floral pattern was traced on, Black Envisions Glazes were rolled inside, then various Neon Envisions Glazes were applied to create the then fire the piece in your kiln...once that is complete you apply a black Opaque Acrylic Bisqu-Stain to the piece! The bright neon colors pop right off the vase!
These projects will be loaded on our website for further instructions!

Southern Stars Retreat!'s that time of year again for the wonderful IADCCT Convention held in Las Vegas!!!

On Saturday we went to the Southern Stars (a chapter of IADCCT) Retreat! Where 3 fabulous projects were taught!

The first project was an adorable heart plate on the Duncan Oh Four Coupe Bisque shape! Just in time for Valentines Day!

Then one of our talented Duncan Ambassadors taught a beautiful tile class. There were a set of 3 tiles painted with an amazing winter scene.

Isn't the Rooster plate playful and fun? Plus the Duncan Ambassador who taught this class showed a little trick to get perfect checkers around the plate!

This is only the beginning of the IADCCT Convention!!!
