Mother day Ribbon plate
Designer: Tim McPherson


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Mark where you want the hoels for the ribbon holes will go.
  3. Using a electric drill with a masonry drill bit, drill holes into the plate. Drill slowly. 
  4. Create a 1/4" border where the side walls meet the flat portion of the plate by applying the MC-001 Masking Tape.
  5. Using the CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply three coats of SC-14 Java Bean to the masked off border. Remove the tape before the color dries to advois any chipping.
  6. Using the CB-604 # 4 Soft Fan, apply three coats of FN-005 Pink to the remaining bisque area on the top area of the plate, removing any color that gets into the drilled holes.
  7. Using the CB-604 # 4 Soft Fan, apply three coats of FN-008 Brown to the back, removing any color that gets into the holes, and 2 coats to the edges.
  8. Place SC-14 Java Bean on a palette and sprinkle a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen medium over the glaze. Using a palette knife, mix color and medium together to the consistency of peanut butter. 
  9. Lay the word MOM, shiny side down, from the DSS-0130 Designer Silkscteen Graceful Script to the center of the plate, and apply the thickened SC-14 Java Bean to the silkscreen. Wash the silkscreen as soon as you are finished. Repeat the above steps, this time with DSS-0103 Designer Silksreens Flourishes and add scrolls to 2 corners.
  10. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 05/06.
  11. Feed the ribbon through the holes, and if desired, add a bow.
