Instructions


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-001 White to the center of both plates and to the outside of the bowls. Allow to dry.
  3. With a ruler and a pencil, mark 11 stripes on the larger plate about 1” apart and about ¾” apart on the small plate.
  4. Mark a stripe on the bowl about 2” down from the top rim.
  5. With the ½” masking tape, apply the tape to mask where the white stripes go and on the line of the bowl.
  6. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-001 White to the white stripes. Remove the masking tape before the last coat dries. Allow to dry.
  7. Now apply the masking tape on top of both edges of the white stripes to protect them.
  8. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-004 Red to the red stripes. Remove the masking tape before the last coat dries. Allow to dry.
  9. Punch out the stars with the paper punch. Wet the star in water and place in place on both plates and on the bowl. Blot with a paper towel to absorb the excess water.
  10. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-006 Blue to the center of the plates. Remove the paper stars before the last coat of glaze dries.
  11. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-006 Blue or FN-004 Red to the star area and inside the bowl. Remove the paper stars before the last coat of glaze dries.
  12. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-004 Red to the back of the plates.
    Optional: Place bowl upside down on a banding wheel and mark a stripe below the star stripe area with a pencil.
  13. Using a CB-106 Script Liner, apply a stripe of FN-006 Blue below the red stripe or a stripe of FN-004 Red below the red stripe. Allow to dry.
  14. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
