Take your torch enameling skills in an entirely new design direction with the stunning beauty of this Japanese technique. Learn how to get the glimmer, shine, and mysterious look of an authentic raku design. Steven will take you through all of the steps you need to know for creating the raku look. He'll also show you how to create a more fragrant and pleasant smelling firing pot. You'll even take home your own eight-color kit to keep the creativity burning back at home!
