Colombia is a country that frames a great cultural tradition with artisanal developments throughout all its regions, which allows a different approach to the use and practice of different materials when it comes to creation processes. One of the most common materials, or that can be found easily in the vast majority of regions is ceramics. And ceramics is a great world yet to be explored in terms of processes, developments and even transformation of raw materials. The main objective of this research is to analyze and evaluate the final results of the behavior of different types of clays such as red, black and gray when combined with pigments from the coloring processes, such as patinas, enamels and engobes. In this way the pedagogical process will consist of the manufacture of a series of test tubes validated in a controlled cooking process and including different percentages of pigments in combinations defined with each of the clays; In this way, a visual catalog of ceramic finishes will be obtained through which the different desired results can be observed in a methodical way when carrying out serial crafts processes by the students; result that will be a considerable input to implement practical classes, talks or workshops, to minimize expenses or losses of both products and material and additional is intended to encourage manufacturing processes of handicrafts in Colombia.
