Instructions

TEAPOT

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

2. Squeeze around a half cup of SC-87 Ruby Slippers into a disposable cup. Add water until it is easily poured. Pour into the teapot until all interior surfaces are covered. Pour out of Spout. Wipe off any excess. 

3. Using a pencil, make a checkered pattern at the bottom of the teapot. Make sure there are an even number of squares going around the teapot. They are not supposed to look perfect. Make the same pattern on the top of the lid. Made four lines going vertically down the spout of the teapot. Try to space them out equally. 

4. Squeeze around three tablespoons of SC-86 Old Lace onto the plate. Add some water to turn it into a wash. Using the Soft Fan, apply one coat to the entire exterior of the teapot and lid.

5. Using the Flat Shader with SC-15 Tuxedo, apply one coat of glaze to every-other square in the checkered pattern. Apply one coat of glaze to the front and back portions of the spout.   

6. Using the Flat Shader with SC-35 Gray Hare, apply highlights to the squares not previously glazed with SC-15 Tuxedo. In addition to the SC-35 Gray Hare, use SC-42 Butter Me Up to add random highlights.

7. Using the Scrip Liner with SC-87 Ruby Slippers, apply two coats of glaze to the handle of the lid, handle accent of the teapot, rim of the teapot, rim of the spout and inside of the lid. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

8. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, make an accent line around the base of the spout and on the handle of the teapot. 

9. On the DSS-0138 Flowers 2 screen, locate the rose. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with excess screen around the edges. 

10. Squeeze about two tablespoons of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the plate. 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. 

11. Position the rose in the center of the teapot. 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. Slowly pull up the screen to avoid smearing. 

12. Using the Detail Liner and SC-73 Candy Apple Red, apply two coats of glaze to the rose. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

13. Using the Detail Liner and SC-26 Green Thumb, apply two coats of glaze to the leaves and stem. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

14. Using the Soft Fan, apply one coat of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze or dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze. 

15. Fire to cone 06.
