Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-224 Key Lime into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water).  It should be the consistency of a coffee cream.  Pour this into the mug and roll around to completely coat the interior of the mug.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep the mug inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. Place some SC-75 Orange-A-Peel on a palette or tile sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife mix to the consistency of thick peanut butter otherwise it will bleed. If the mix is to thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if to thick add more SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to thin.  You can also use SG-408 Orange Designer liner for more color saturation.
  4. Position the screen on the piece. Hold in place, starting from the center out, rub the mixture on the screen with your finger.  Lift a corner up to check if you are applying enough color.  Remove the screen and wash with water.  Do Not let the color dry in the screen. This will cause damage to it.
  5. Screen the large stripe to one of the mugs, small chevron to another, and the small stripe horizontally to another mug. Allow to dry.
  6. Place some SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife mix to the consistency of thick peanut butter otherwise it will bleed. If the mix is to thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if to thick add more SC-15 Tuxedo to thin.  You can also use SG-401 Black Designer liner for more color saturation.
  7. Position the screen on the piece. Hold in place, starting from the center out, rub the mixture on the screen with your finger.  Lift a corner up to check if you are applying enough color.  Remove the screen and wash with water.  Do Not let the color dry in the screen. This will cause damage to it.
  8. Screen the coral to the wide striped mug, the crab to the small chevron and a vertical small stripe to the last mug.
