  • Time: 1½ hours


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-009 Black 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 teapot and roll around to completely coat the interior of the teapot.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep the teapot inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-009 Black to the face of the teapot.
  4. Let that dry completely. Once dry, apply the ¼" Low Tack Masking Tape in a diamond pattern.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SC-16 Cotton Tail on top of the taped face of the teapot.
  6. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, alternating sections, apply 2 coats of SC-9 Jaded and SC-88 Tu Tu Tango.
  7. Once that has set up you may carefully remove the tape.
  8. Using a combination of the CB-106 #6 Script Liner and the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan to paint the rest of the teapot. Paint the body and the lid with 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton tail and the spout, foot, both handles, and the lip with FN-009 Black
  9. Allow to dry completely.
  10. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
