Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a 1 3/4" diameter circle, trace circles on the lid, evenly spaced as shown. Trace a 1 1/4" diameter circle inside previously traced circle. And finally, trace a 1" circle inside the previously traced circle.
  3. Using a 1 1/4" diameter circle, trace circles above and inbetween previously traced circles. With a pencil, draw two spirals inside the previously traced circles. 
  4. Using SG-409 Bright Green, outline the largest (1 3/4") circles. Also apply dots around the large, indented circle on the lid of MB-1410 Button box.
  5. Using SG-410 Bright Blue, outline the mid-sized (1 1/4") circles. 
  6. Draw lines using SG-409 Bright Green to connect the bright green circle to the bright blue circle, as shown.
  7. Thin SC-410 Bright Blue with water (3:1). Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, float the thinned SG-410 Bright Blue along the previously outlined lines.
  8. Apply dots of SG-402 White on top of Bright Blye floated areas.
  9. Using SG-409 Bright Green, outling the smallest (1") circles.
  10. Using SG-410 Bright Blue, outline the circles above and inbetween the largest circles.
  11. Using SG-408 Orange, float inbetween the large Bright Green circles, as shown. Apply dots in a line to the center in the circles.
  12. In the middle of the smallest circles, make three pressure brush strokes using CB-404 #4 Pointed Round with SG-408 Orange. Dot the center of the brush strokes with SG-410 bright Blue.
  13. Slightly thin SG-409 Bright Green with water (3:1). Float the thinned SG-409 Bright Green in the space in between the dotted circle and the bright blue outlined circle, as shown. Let dry completely.
  14. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of CC-102 White Crackle to in the inner section of the lid (inside the dotted area). Allow glaze to dry between coats. 
  15. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of CC-101 Transparent Crackle to the edge of the rim (over top the decorated area). Allow glaze to dry between coats. 
  16. Stilt the lid and bottom and fire to cone 06/05.
  17. Slightly thin SS-138 Flat Black with water (1:1). Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, brush the thinned SS-138 Flat Black over the fired CC-101 Transparent Crackle and wipe away the excess with a paper towel.
