Instructions

 

 

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Thin SC-11 Blue Yonder (1 part water to 3 parts glaze). Using a cotton ball, add the sky to your frame by swirling the cotton ball onto the upper rim of the plate. Leave the bottom plate/rim white.
  3. Using a sea sponge, apply the equivelant of 3 coats of SP-254 Speckled Vanilla Dip to the bottom rim.
  4. Using a No. 2 pencil, draw a curved line (¼ of a circle) in the upper left corner of the plate to create a sun.
  5. Using a RB-118 #8 Round, apply 3 coats of SC-75 Orange-A-Peel within the arc you created.
  6. Using a RB-104 #4 Liner, make rays of sun by painting lines that eminate away from the circle.
  7. Paint or sponge SC-15 Tuxedo onto the rubber stamp of your choice. Press the stamp on the upper rim of your plate to give your photo a title. The sample says, "Family Vacation."
  8. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-001 White, to the inner square of the plate.
  9. Using a RB-100 #0 Liner, outline your sun, the rays and the horizon line of your sea scape using SC-15 Tuxedo. Add seagulls by making "v"s in the upper right corner.
  10. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
  11. Review the instructions on image transfer to create your image.
  12. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
