- SB-128 Stoneware Tumbler
- SW-001 Stoneware Clear, SW-120 Northern Woods, UG-50 Jet Black, SG-403 Red Designer Liner
- DSS-133 Merry Christmas, CB-604 #4 Soft Fan Brush, AC-310 Silkscreen Medium
- BT-910 Synthetic Sponge, Palette Knife
- Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
- Place some UG-50 Jet Black on a palette or tile and sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife mix color and medium to the consistency of thick peanut butter. If the mix is to thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if too thick add more Underglaze. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give you blank areas in your screen. You can also use SG-401 Black Designer liner for more color saturation
- Position small Santa from DSS-133 Merry Christmas 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 the screen. Repeat the screen around the tumbler.

- Using SG-403 Red Designer Liner, dot around the screen images on the outside of the tumbler.

- Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SW-001 Stoneware Clear to the outside of the tumbler. Take care to not smear design when applying the glaze. Allow for glaze to completely dry between each coat.
