Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-224 Key Lime 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 vase and roll around to completely coat the interior of the vase.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep the vase inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. With MC-002 ½” Low Tack Masking Tape, tape a line 3 inches from the bottom, or use a banding wheel to mark the distance.
  4. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3-4 coats of FN-224 Key Lime to the top area of the vase.  Allow to dry.
  5. Place some SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife mix to the consistency of thick peanut butter otherwise it will bleed. If the mix is to thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if to thick add more SC-15 Tuxedo to thin.  You can also use SG-401 Black Designer liner for more color saturation.
  6. With the silkscreen shiny side up, position the screen 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 it. Arrange the screen so they go around the egg in rows.
  7. Use SG-405 Green Designer Liner to make small dots around the screens for background.
  8. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing over the green area of the egg and 2 coats at the bottom; or dip in Clear Glaze of Choice.  Allow to dry.
  9. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
