  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Soak a length of jute in SW-303 Manganese Wash.  Wrap the jute around the mug.  It can be wrapped in single band or in a spiral.  Just make sure the jute has enough of the wash in it.   Remove the jute.
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SW-250 White Opal to the outside of the mug, then apply 2 coats of SW-204 Amber Topaz over the SW-250 White Opal.
  4. Apply 3 coats of SW-203 Root Beer to the inside of the mug. Allow to dry. With a damp sponge, wipe off any excess glaze off the foot of mug.
  5. Place unstilted, on a high-fired, kiln washed kiln shelf.
  6. Fire to shelf cone 5/6.
