- SB-105 Rimmed Dinner Plate
- SW-250 White Opal, SW-251 Pink Opal, WW-252 Blue Opal, SW-253 Green Opal
- BT-910 Synthetic Sponge, CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, C-223 Large Writer Bottle
- Banding Wheel
- Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
- Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, brush 2 coats of SW-250 White Opal to your piece.
- Fill 3 writer bottles each with one of the following colors: SW-251 Pink Opal, SW-252 Blue Opal, SW-253 Green Opal. Thin each color with a small amount of water.
- Using a banding wheel, center and secure the plate. Starting with the outter 1/3 of the plate, start with the outside and work your way into the center to get the spin art look.
- With the plate on the banding wheel, use a writer bottle with thinned SW-253 Green Opal, squeezing a layer of the color to the outer 1/3 rim. Let that color lose its wet shiny look.
- In the middle 1/3 of the plate, squeeze a layer of thinned SW-252 Blue Opal, allowing it to overlap or spread onto the first color. Let that color lose its wet shiny look.
- SW-251 Pink Opal is the last color. Start in the center of the plate and squeeze a layer so that it overlaps or spreads onto the second color. Let that color lose its wet shiny look.
- Using the thinned SW-253 Green Opal, draw a spiral from the center of the plate to the outer rim.
- With a damp sponge, wipe off any excess glaze off the foot of the plate.
- Place on a high-fired kiln washed kiln shelf. Do not stilt and make sure the plate is not hanging over the kiln shelf.
