Project Info




  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Center the piece on a banding wheel, and locate and mark the center, then another line about 3” from the center, then another line to create a border that’s about 3” wide.
  3. Drill a hole in the plate for the clock works.
  4. Divide the plate into 12 equal sections.
  5. Using a CB-106 # 6 Script Liner and a CB-604 # 4 Soft Fan, apply coats of the following colors: FN-039 Light Grey to the center band area and back, and to the alternating openings FN-005 Pink and FN-032 Canton Jade. Allow to dry.
  6. Make a stencil of the FN-005 Pink and FN-032 Canton Jade areas so when stamping, you will not stamp into other areas.
