Instructions

  1. For the right depth of clay, lay out canvas fabric on table and place 1/4" slats on the left and right side of the canvas fabric.  Place a piece of moist clay about 2 lbs. in size in the middle of the fabric.  Using a rolling pin, roll out the clay to the size desired. The slats are used as a guide to keep your clay level and at the same evenness. Make sure the edges of the rolling pin hit the 1/4" slats.
  2. Lay MT-008 Spirals on the clay, roll over with the rolling pin to transfer the image.
  3. Let the clay rest for a bit and to gain some stiffness.
  4. Cut the clay with a needle tool 1/2" larger than the widest side of the 8" form.
  5. With the rubber rib, narrow the edges of the clay.
  6. Lay the clay with the spiral side down over the smallest side of the clay form.
  7. Form the clay around the form.  Let it sit and get somewhat leather hard so that when you take the clay off the form it will keep its shape.
  8. Let completely dry and fire to a shelf cone 04.
  9. Brush two coats of the various colors, SC-73 Candy Apple Red, SC-97 Cant-elope, SC-77 GLo-worm, SC--11 Blue Yonder, SC-27 Sour Apple, SC-75 Orange A Peel, into the spirals, with CB-106 Script Liner.
  10. When the last coat is still damp, scrape off the glaze from the top of the spiral, with a flat rubber rib. With a damp sponge remove whats left of the color, so just the lines in the spiral have color to show the detail.
  11. Dot SG-401 Black around all the spirals.
  12. Clear glaze with S-2101 Clear using CB-604 Soft Fan to the inside of the dish, and three coats of FN-051 Strawberry to the back with the fan brush.
  13. Fire to shelf cone 05/06.
