Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Print two copies of the pattern and cut out both of them. Set one aside for now.
  3. Center one of the patterns on the pot and sketch a line around the pattern about ¼” beyond the pattern.
  4. Using a CB-406 #6 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of SC-86 Old Lace to owl area. Allow to dry.
  5. Position the pattern onto the SC-86 Old Lace area.  With a Fan Brush, apply water under the pattern then press into place. Blot with a paper towel to remove any excess water and any bubbles. With a damp sponge, clean up around the edges of the pattern, be careful not to wet the pattern too much so it does not rip.
  6. Position the pot on a banding wheel and center it.
  7. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, starting at the bottom of the pot, band with SC-31 The Blues, the middle with SC-76 Cara-bein Blue and then the top and the inside rim with SC-32 Bluebeard. Blend each color into the next.
  8. Remove the pattern after all the banding of the background is done. Allow to dry.
  9. With a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, use the other cut out pattern and trace on all the details of the owls.
  10. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, load the brush with water, tap off excess on a paper towel and side load in SC-14 Java Bean then pressure stroke in each of the owl feathers. Float some SC-14 Java Bean on the chest around the wings, feet and around the eyes.
  11. Float SC-15 Tuxedo on the tree branch and leaf.
  12. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of SC-24 Dandelion to the iris of the eyes and SC-15 Tuxedo to the pupils. Add a highlight with SC-86 Old Lace.
  13. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, detail the design with SC-15 Tuxedo. Allow to dry.
  14. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear to the outside of the pot and 2 coats to the inside or apply the clear glaze of our choice. Allow to dry.
  15. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
