Instructions

  1. Cast greenware using Clay Magic mold 3022. Let dry until the shape can be handled without deforming the shape.
  2. Print pattern and cut out negative areas (marked as "cut out" or "C/O"). Place pattern on the pumpkin.
  3. Using the blade end of X10140 Xiem Clean Up Tool cut out the eyes, nose and mouth. For the light kit: cut a 1" hole in the back, towards the bottom part of the piece.  
  4. Clean seams and and rough edges from cut-outs with a damp sponge and/or clean-up tool.  Fire to cone 04.
  5. Familiarize yourself with silkscreen instructions. Dispense SC-75 Orange A Peel onto a palette, sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium and mix using a palette knife.
  6. Lay the large chevron pattern from DSS-104 over the pumpkin, use a rubber squeegee to apply the mixture through the screen until the pumpkin is completely covered.
  7. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner apply two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the eyes, "Boo" letters, and stem.
  8. Use CB-110 #10/0 Liner to detail the inside edges of all the cut outs and lightly detail the seams on the pumpkin.
  9. Use CB-106 Script Liner to apply one heavily coat of SC-26 Green Thumb to the stem.
  10. Use CB-604 #4 Soft Fan to apply two coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the entire exterior of the pimpkin.
  11. Fire to cone 06/05.
