315.Colorful Giraffe Rhino
Designer: Marcia Roullard


  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust .
  2. The Mexican blanket look is done in small scale on the giraffe and a large scale on the rhino.
  3. Use MC-001 and/or MC-002 Low Tack Masking Tape for the white line in the small scale and on a few faceted sections of the rhino.
  4. For sharp paint edges, tape can be applied around the edges of the faceted shapes, or use a sponge to remove color that extends beyond the shape.
  5. Use CB-106 #6 Script Liner to brush on both sides of the tape with SC-11 Blue Yonder, add SC-76 Cara-bein Blue to one side of the brush to fade from SC-11 Blue Yonder to a dark SC-76 Cara-bein Blue. Apply two coats.
  6. On one side of the blue stripe, brush SC-97 Cant-elope with CB-106 #6 Script Liner, keeping the edge sharp next to the blue, fade the color to SC-6 Sunkissed. Apply two coats.
  7. On the other side of the blue stripe, brush a sharp edge of SC-75 Orange A Peel, add SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the brush to change color. Use CB-106 #6 Script Liner applying two coats.
  8. Use the various colors to apply solid color to the small sections of the giraffe such as the hooves, horns, ears, mane and tail.
  9. The rhino has a few blanket like sections, but mostly uses the color fades on the larger sections of the facets.
  10. Fade the color the same way, SC-75 Orange a Peel fade to SC-73 Candy Apple Red, SC-11 Blue Yonder fades to SC-76 Cara-bein Blue, SC-6 Sunkissed fades to SC-97 Cant-elope. Use CB-106 Script Liner brushing on two coats.
  11. After the color is dry, outline all the faceted shapes with SG-404 Blue.
  12. Brush on two coats of S-2101 Clear, or dip in a Clear.
  13. Remove the glaze from the bottom and fire to cone 05/06.
