CLASS OPTION 2:  

Game of Thrones Clay Sculpting and Glazing art class at Desert Dragon Pottery Studio in Phoenix.

This is a specialized clay sculpting and glazing class where you will learn how to sculpt dragon eggs with 3d scales using clay. We will even teach you how to give the eggs an aged look. The clay sculpting class would take approximately 2 hours. You will be given the right tools and techniques to make your dragon egg sculpture look awesome. The dragon eggs will be approximately 6 inches tall. They will be full eggs with a hollow core. Once you have sculpted the eggs, you will need to wait 3 weeks to glaze (paint it). This is because the clay needs to be fired before it can be painted. You can return to the art studio anytime during regular hours after 3 weeks to paint your sculpted piece/s. It will take approximately 2 hours to paint your eggs. Once you have painted your pieces, you can collected your completed pieces a week later (as we will need to fire your work one last time in the kiln before it is finalized).

Please do not confuse Class option 1 with Class option 2. Class option 1 is a completely different type of painting class with a different finish.

CLASS OPTION 2, has two price options:

  • If you would like to sculpt and paint 1 egg, the price is $35 only.
  • If you would like to sculpt and paint a set of 3 eggs, the price is $75.

All materials and supplies included.

Suitable for all ages. This is a 2 hour Sculpting class, and 2 hour painting class among Game of Throne fans.

Join the fun on Saturday 30 September 2017,  1pm to 3pm. You may paint the eggs a week later at your convenience, and the ceramic dragon eggs will be fired in the kiln and will be ready for collection a week after painting.

Apply the technique that we teach you, and then we will fire all 3 eggs in the kiln for you. This is a specialized glazing class for adults and kids. Note: The eggs split down in the middle so they open and close so that you can place trinkets or toy dragons in there if you choose.

Your final piece will look slightly different from the picture and will vary depending on your choice of colors and application of skill.
