Iced tea, lemonade - all better served in your hand-painted pitcher.
- MB-1334 Tall Pitcher
- SC-23 Jack O'Lantern
- SC-15 Tuxedo
- FN-014 Antique White
- CB-106 #6 Script Liner
- CB-110 # 10/0 Liner
- CB-604 - #4 Soft Fan
- BT-910 - Synthetic Sponges
- AC-203 Wax Resist

- Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
- Place some FN-014 Antique White into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water). It should be the consistency of a coffee cream. Pour this into the pitcher and roll around to completely coat the interior of the pitcher. Drain out the excess glaze and keep pitcher inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
- Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-014 Antique White to the outside of the piece. Allow to dry.
- Using a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace on the pattern.
- Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, loaded in SC-15 Tuxedo, outline and detail all the traced lines on the pattern.
- Using a CB-110 # 10/0 Liner and a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 generous coat of AC-203 Wax Resist over the areas you want to protect, such as the birds and the leaves. Clean your brush with AC-525 Brush Cleaner and water.
- Using the CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-23 Jack O’Lantern to the background areas. If any excess color gets on the waxed areas, remove it with a damp brush and water or cotton swab dampened in water. Allow to dry.
- Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
