  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Thicken SW-302 Rutile Wash with AC-310 Silk Screen Medium with a palette knife, till it is the consistency of peanut butter. 
  3. Familarize yourself with Mayco Silk Screen instructions.  Lay the DSS-104 large chevron on the dinner plate and apply the mixture to the center of the screen and work out towards the edges (use a rubber squeegee or your fingers). Repeat this process for the small stripe from DSS-105 Stripe pattern on the bowl and mug, and the small chevron on the salad plate.
  4. When dry, thicken the black glaze of choice from the list above with AC-310 Silk Screen Medium, and screen the various animals on the surfaces of the mug, bowl, dinner and salad plate. Use your finger to screen these pieces.
  5. Brush one coat of black glaze to the rim edge of the plates, and mug, and the top section of the bowl, and on the edge of the mugs, handle.
  6. When dry, brush two coats of SW-128 Cordovan on the backside of the plates, inside of the bowl and mug and on the handle, with CB-604 Soft Fan.
  7. Brush the same areas with two coats of SW-131 Birch. Take care to brush in the direction of the shape.
  8. Brush two even and thin coats of SW-002 Matte Clear over the tops of the plates, and the outside of the bowl and mug.
  9. Wipe away any glaze from the bottom off all the ware, then fire to shelf cone 6, medium speed.
