Instructions:

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan brush apply one coat of FN-01 White to the front of the plate.  If doing the Purple combination base coat with FN-006 Blue.
  3. Using the small cup mix the colors.The formula is 2 tablespoons glaze to 1/2 cap of water and stir to mix. (We used a Stroke & Coat bottle cap to measure the water.) 
  4. Spray the plate with a little water. This helps the glaze slide and move over the plate for better mixing of colors.
  5. Tip:  Work light to dark when pouring the colors.
  6. Start with SC-16 Cotton Tail and pour it into 2 sections of the bisque.
  7. Pour the second color over the edges of the SC-16 Cotton Tail and tilt to get the colors moving.
  8. Periodically mist the ware to assist in the movement.
  9. Tip: When tilting be careful not to muddy the colors, but to blend and create striations.
  10. Pour the third color over the edges of the other two colors and a little in the center.Tilt the plate and periodically mist with water or rubbing alcohol to enhance the movement of the glazes.
  11. Goal:  Cover the entire front of the plate with the glazes.
  12. Add the fourth color to the front of the plate.Add a little at a time to prevent mudding the colors.
  13. Finishing step: Squirt a line of SC-15 Tuxedo across the plate - not a lot.This is to add visual interest. Additionally, flick or splatter darker colors to the front of the plate. 
  14. Optional step: Spritz the plate with rubbing alcohol.This merges some of the colors and creates little circles in the glaze.
  15. Using the Soft Fan Brush apply three coats of a color of your choice to the back of the plate.
  16. Allow to dry.The surface will be nice and smooth. 
  17. Artist choice:  Add a Designer Silkscreen, stamp or design on the surface.
  18. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
