Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Use the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan brush to apply two coats of EL-208 Moss Creek in a 3" band of across the center of the gourd.
  3. Use plenty of crystals but recede the last coat on the sides so the crystals do not flow off the rounded surface. Use the CB- 604 Soft Fan brush to apply two coats of EL-204 Glowing Embers on the remaining sections of the gourd making sure to overlap into the EL-208 Moss Creek.
  4. All colors should be applied while the glazes are still wet; do not wait for them to dry.
  5. Use the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan brush to plop PC-601 Clear Cascade heavily all over the gourd leaving spaces of the Elements colors showing. Apply minimally on the bottom 1/3 as it will flow.
  6. Use the CB- 604 #4 Soft Fan brush to plop PC-602 White Cascade randomly on the gourd. This contributes to glaze movement and introduces White into the color scheme.
  7. While the color is wet use the CB-110 10/0 Liner brush and SC-15 Tuxedo to create veins all over the gourd.
  8. Let dry. Stilt and fire to cone 05/06.
