First: white crackle
I fired some pieces with white crackle and many had a lot of bubbling. I
assumed I had the stuff on too thickly. I am wondering if I should make
fewer coats (I put 3) or if I should mix in more water (I had it about the
consistency of heavy cream). Also, it sometimes seems discolored...to the
beige, although the clay beneath was white. In the same batch I got some
really nice crackle on one piece, but I wish I knew why! Any hints on
getting great white crackle?
Second: only if you care about the special ed question. Joyce, I have been
there/done that too and I don't know the answers. I decided the only thing I
could do was approach inclusion from the other side and become the
"includer", so I switched from special ed to a regular classroom. And I do
feel that I did more good with my four dyslexic students last year than I did
in having them as a special ed teacher 3 to 4 years previous.
