Complete theoretical and practical course on the formulation and application of basic glazes and the processes to create the own glazes with crystals. The program of the Crystal Glazes provides the formulations of glazes and frits best suited to the cristals, the theory on crystallizations, temperatures, applications and methods of firing, reduction and post-reduction, treatments with acids and the formulation for red backgrounds.
