Project Info




  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-009 Black into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it. 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 vase inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a pencil with AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace on pattern.
  4. Outline the pattern with a red fine line marker.
  5. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick load the sponge with SC-15 Tuxedo. Tap the SC-15 Tuxedo onto the ST-124 Maze Stamp then press the stamp gently onto the piece. Continue stamping around the piece. Allow to dry.
  6. Use SA-002 Black to outline the pattern. Allow to dry.
  7. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner and a CB-110 #10/0 Liner for the smaller petals, puddle a heavy coat of CG-785 Royal Fantasy in the iris petals, making sure to use the crystals from the bottom of the jar. While the glaze is wet, tip the top petals with SC-16 Cotton Tail, mingling the SC-16 Cotton Tail with the CG-785 Royal Fantasy so the transition between the two colors is muted. Puddle SC-24 Dandelion in the center of the iris.
  8. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner and a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-26 Green Thumb to the leaves, adding in SC-24 Dandelion to change some of the leaves.
  9. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-211 Sheer Blue on the vase.
  10. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, brush SC-15 Tuxedo on the SA-002 Black lines if covered with glaze. Allow to dry.
  11. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 05/06.
