Instructions

 

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

2. Squirt sone SG-403 Red Designer Liner onto a plate and thin with some water.

3. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner, apply 1 coat in a mandala pattern. I find it easiest to start from the center and work outward.

4. Place some UG-50 Jet Black on a palette or tile and sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife mix color and bedium to the consistency of thick peanut butter. if the mix is too thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if it is too thick add more Stroke & Coat. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image.  Too thick of a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate though the holes in the screen and give blank areas in your screen.

5. Position the screen shiny side down on the piece. Hold in place, starting from the center out, Rub the mixture on the screen with your finger. Lift a corner up to check if you are applying enough color. Remove the screen and wash with water.  Do not let the color dry in the screen. this will cause damage to the screen.

7. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SW-001 Stoneware Clear to the face of the plate and 3 coats of SW-111 Wrought Iron the rim and back of the plate. Do not apply glaze to the foot.

8. Let dry completley.

9. Wipe foot clean and fire to shelf cone 5/6.
