3B Art - Ancient Greek Red-Figure Pots , by Mrs Kingsley
Date: 2nd Feb 2018 @ 4:20pm
As part of our Ancient Adventures topic, this week 3B have been learning all about ancient Greek pottery. We have created our own red-figure pots with spectacular results!
Firstly, we chose our pot from a selection traditionally used in Ancient Greece, then we sketched and coloured in our pots in typical teracotta colours. The next stage involved us painting the whole pot black with a mixture of arylic paint and washing up liquid! This replicated the black slip that was used to cover the terracotta pots in Ancient Greek times. Finally, we used a cocktail stick to etch our traditional designs onto the pots.
We hope you enjoy our gallery!
