Thank you all. It had actually not occurred to me to use a commercial glaze. I've never used on before but for this one project it is most likely the very best solution. Also, thanks for the link, the grape should work out great.
Have you looked at commercial glazes, I had a similar request for orange cups oxidation C6 food safe. I found 3 different ones, picked my favorite they came out perfect. Denice
Success in a low residency program has more to do with you as a learner, than the program itself. Are you someone who likes to "run their own show?" Do you have the discipline to keep yourself on track and your head in the game? If not, don't waste your money. If you are someone who enjoys reading, working, and learning on your own, are self-directed and motivated to succeed, low residency is for you. My MEd is in Educational Administration and from a low residency program. I like that style of learning. I like self designed programs as well, but I am someone who is comfortable setting goals and getting the job done. I also do not enjoy the social bulls*t that comes with most traditional settings so low res was perfect for me. The question isn't so much about the program, it is more about YOU as a learner.
Oh and with new online classrooms you will find plenty of interface time with others, it will just be written. I'm presently involved in a low res/distance program for the Neurodevelopmental Approach to Learning and there is plenty of face to face time for my taste, and then time when we put what we have learned into practice in the classroom, and share about it online. If you need daily input of others to "validate and pump you up" then a distance program is not necessarily going to be fulfilling for you unless you forge a friendship with a fellow student with whom you can share on line.
I have a friend who uses little dots on lots of her work. She uses slip in a heavy duty zip lock bag and snips a tiny bit off one corner, then just pipes out her dots. She does get little points on top of her balls so after they have set up a bit, she takes a damp sponge and gently goes over the tops and smooths them out.
