Project Info


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean Sponge and wipe Bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan, apply 3 Coats of FN-001 White to the top side of the platter, and the top edge and inside edges of the handles (not the bottom). Allow to dry.
  3. Trace on pattern using AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper.
  4. Use the AC-223 Large Writer Tip with AC-302 Wax Resist to outline the pattern. All the white lines are where the wax resist was applied. Allow the wax to dry.
  5. Refer to the color photo as a color guide, and apply two Coats of color to all areas.
  6. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to the flower petals. The leaves are SC-27 Sour Apple, shaded with SC-8 Just Froggy. Centers of flowers are SC-24 Dandelion. Spirals go from SC-10 Teal Next Time to SC-11 Blue Yonder, or they start with SC-24 Dandelion changing into SC-8 Just Froggy then to SC-11 Teal Next Time.
  7. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan whenever possible or the CB-106 #6 Script Liner. The background begins in the center with SC-24 Dandelion. Next to the center, brush SC-27 Sour Apple into the wet SC-24 Dandelion then brush SC-11 Blue Yonder next to and overlapping the SC-27 Sour Apple, by the time you get to the very edge add in some SC-76 Cara-bein Blue. Apply two Coats.
  8. Using a CB-6018 #8 Soft Fan, apply 3 three Coats of SC-76 Cara-bein Blue to the back of the platter. Do not paint the edges of the platter and the inside edges of the handles let the edges remain white.
