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

  2. Locate the trees and “Merry Christmas” on DSS-0160 Vintage Holiday screen. Draw an outline around them in permanent marker. Cut them out with excess screen around the edges.

  3. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the palette. 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.

  4. Place the “Merry Christmas” on the plate, shiny side down. 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. Next, place the large tree in the center of the plate and repeat. Finally, use the small tree to fill in the rest of the space.

  5. Using the Script Liner with SC-26 Green Thumb, SC-73 Candy Apple Red, SC-74 Hot Tamale and SC-98 Slime Time, apply 2 coats to the lettering. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  6. Use SG-402 White, SG-403 Red and SG-405 Green to decorate the lettering with lines and dots.

  7. Using SG-98 Slime Time or SG-26 Green Thumb apply 2 coats to the trees. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  8. Using the Detail Liner with SC-6 Sunkissed, apply 2 coats to the stars. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  9. Using the Detail Liner with SC-74 Hot Tamale, apply 2 coats to the ornaments. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  10. Using the Script Liner with SG-704 Peppermint, apply 1 coat over the trees.

  11. Using the Soft Fan with S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze, apply 2 coats to the front and back of the plate. Or dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze.
