Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

  2. Locate the penguin on DSS-0162 Holiday Icons screen. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with excess screen around the edges.

  3. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more silkscreen medium or glaze.

  4. Place the penguin on the mug, shiny side down. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium and gently rub in circles staring in the center and working outward.

  5. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-45 My Blue Heaven and SC-11 Blue Yonder onto the palette. Dip the sponge in the glazes and sponge the background. Alternate between colors to blend.

  6. Using the Detail Liner with SC-98 Slime Time, apply 2 coats to the ball and rim of the hat. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  7. Using the Script Liner with SC-26 Green Thumb, apply 2 coats to the rest of the hat. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  8. Using the Script Liner with SC-74 Hot Tamale, apply 2 coat to the horizontal portion of the scarf. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  9. Using the Script Liner with SC-73 Candy Apple Red, apply 2 coats to the vertical portion of the scarf. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  10. Using the Script Liner and Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, apply 2 coats to the body of the penguin. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  11. Using the Detail Liner with SC-23 Jack O’ Lantern, apply 2 coats to the beak. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  12. Using SG-403 Red, make vertical lines on the rim of the hat.

  13. Locate the snowflakes on DSS-0162 Holiday Icons screen. Draw an outline around them in permanent marker. Cut them out with excess screen around the edges.

  14. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-12 Moody Blue onto the palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more silkscreen medium or glaze.

  15. Place the snowflake on the mug, shiny side down. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium and gently rub in circles staring in the center and working outward. Repeat for the desired amount.

  16. Using the Soft Fan with SC-11 Blue Yonder, apply 3 coats to the handle, inside and bottom of the mug. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
