Building

  1. Cut out shapes from pattern and trace onto cardboard or cardstock to use as stencils for cutting clay

  2. If creating your own shapes, use cardboard or cardstock and masking tape to build your prototype by cutting a verity of shapes and building with them to create your own vase

  3. Roll out a slab that is about 1/8 inch thick and compress with a rib

  4. Using a fettling knife, trace and cut out shapes

  5. If using pattern cut out a of shape A, 4 of shape B and 1 of Shape C

  6. Smooth out cut edged with a damp sponge

  7. When ready to build, start at the base layer. Cut a beveled edge on the long sides of each of the 4 shapes in the bottom rom (shape B)

  8. To create a beveled edge, bring your clay slab to the end of the table and use the table to hold your fettling knife or bevel cutter sturdy at a 45-degree angle to cut. You can also use a bevel cutter

  9. Attach the beveled angles together by slipping and scoring

  10. Roll a thin coil to attach inside each corner as extra support at the seam

  11. Cut beveled edges onto the 3 longer sides of the next layer of shapes (Shape A) leaving the shortest end unbeveled

  12. Slip and score beveled edges together

  13. Attach rim by wrapping Shape C around the top of the vase creating a small cylinder

  14. Smoosh ends together and smooth out seam

  15. Slip and score points of contact to attach to the top

  16. Smoosh together and smooth out seam on inside and outside. Option to alter the shape of the rim to angle in or out

  17. To create bottom, place vase onto of an unused slab and cut piece to fit

  18. Slip and score edges together and smooth extra clay over the seam

  19. With a damp sponge clean up surfaces

  20. Create texture by gently pushing the eraser side of a pencil into the clay to make the large marks and the tip of the pencil to make the small marks

  21. Smooth out any unwanted marks with sponge

  22. Allow vase to dry slowly, draped with plastic

  23. When dried completely bisque fire to Cone 04

Glazing

  1. Wipe vase with a damp sponge to remove any dust
  2. Create a thinned mix of Fern (EL-150) by mixing 2-parts glaze and 1-part water into a separate container to create a mixture that is the consistency of heavy cream.

  3. Pour mixture into vase and turn to coat inside. Place your hand over the opening to keep glaze from spilling out while coating

  4. When you feel that you have fully coated the inside pour extra glaze back into your mixing container. This can be saved to use for pouring insides of other projects by covering with an airtight lid

  5. Establish your half way mark by drawing a line around the outside of your vase where the two glazes will meet

  6. With a soft fan brush apply 3 coats of Fern (EL-150) to the top half of the vase, stopping at the center line

  7. Allow each coat to dry before applying the next

  1. Clean the greenware seams using a Clean-up Tool. Further sand the seam lines and neck opening with the Green Grit Cloth. Using an old pen, incise the edge of the inset panel to the rim of the vase panel. This will aid in painting after firing. Use a dampened Synthetic Sponge to wipe down the vase to remove any dust. Check the inside for any debris as well.
  2. Fire the piece to Shelf Cone 04.
  3. Wipe down the ware with a moistened Synthetic Sponge. Do not over saturate the ware with water. The pattern transfer and tape adhesion will be impaired with a damp surface.
  4. Using a pencil to trace the pattern onto the ware using a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon.
  5. Using various sizes of Tapes (MC-001, MC-002) to complete the pattern of the snowflake. Start with the main six points of the snowflake when masking off the pattern. Use the scissors to cut any various angles needed to complete the pattern. Tape can overlap onto other areas as long as the pattern isn’t compromised. If the pattern has any round circles to it, use the various sizes of the ½” or ¾” Round Stickers to complete the snowflake. Make sure all edges are securely down on the tape and stickers.
  6. Using CB-604 Soft Fan to apply 1 thin coat of S-2101 over the inset panel of the vase over the mask taped areas. Applying the one coat of clear glaze will inhibit crawling of the snowfall during firing. Try not to get any color onto the bottle trim.
  7. Apply 1 coats of SG-302 Snowfall using CB-602 Soft Fan to the inset panel over the clear glaze. Sponge on two additional coats of Snowfall using a Synthetic Sponge.
  8. Shake and Stir CG-2701 Peacock Eyes. Pour out some glaze onto to a tile/pallet and thin with water slightly. Using CB-602 Soft Fan to apply one coat with crystals to the inset panel over the Snowfall. Watch the placement of the crystals to evenly distribute them over the Snowfall. Use the brush to manipulate the crystals off the taped areas as well. Let the color dry for a short time until the glaze on the taped areas has gone matte. Remove the tape and stickers from the pattern before color has completely dried. Chipping off the glaze can occur if the glaze has dried too much. Note the removal of the tape and stickers to make sure all areas have them removed from the pattern. Use a clean-up tool to aid in removing the tape and stickers. Should any areas be lacking of crystals, use CB-404 Pointed Round to place crystals in the deficient areas.
  9. Use a damp sponge to remove any excess glaze that is on the trim and edge of the vase.
  10. Fire to Shelf Cone 05-06.
  11. Thin some FN-19 Dark Blue in a Plastic Cup to the consistency of melted ice cream. Pour the thinned glaze into the vase, while working quickly, rotate the piece to coat the inside of the vase. Pour out the excess color and invert the vase to dry. Wipe off any drips using the moistened Synthetic Sponge.
  12. Using CB-106 Script Liner, CB-404 Pointed Round and CB-604 Soft Fan to apply 3 good coats of FN-19 Dark Blue to the edges and trim of the bottle.
  13. Apply 3 coats of FN-34 Big Sky Blue to Snowflake using CB-106 Script Liner or CB-404 Pointed Round. SC-53 Purple Haze was substituted for the Big Sky Blue on the offset snowflake pattern as an option.
  14. Stilt and Fire the piece to Shelf Cone 05-06.

  4. Using a pencil to trace the pattern onto the ware using a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon.
  5. Using various sizes of Tapes (MC-001, MC-002 and Blue Masking) to complete the pattern of the snowflake. Start with the main six points of the snowflake when masking off the pattern. Use the scissors to cut any various angles needed to complete the pattern. Tape can overlap onto other areas as long as the pattern isn’t compromised. If the pattern has any round circles to it, use the various sizes of the ½” or ¾” Round Stickers to complete the snowflake. Make sure all edges are securely down on the tape and stickers.
  6. Using CB-604 Soft Fan to apply 1 thin coat of S-2101 over the inset panel of the vase over the mask taped areas. Applying the one coat of clear glaze will inhibit crawling of the snowfall during firing. Try not to get any color onto the bottle trim.
  7. Apply 1 coats of SG-302 Snowfall using CB-602 Soft Fan to the inset panel over the clear glaze. Sponge on two additional coats of Snowfall using a Synthetic Sponge.
  8. Shake and Stir CG-2701 Peacock Eyes. Pour out some glaze onto to a tile/pallet and thin with water slightly. Using CB-602 Soft Fan to apply one coat with crystals to the inset panel over the Snowfall. Watch the placement of the crystals to evenly distribute them over the Snowfall. Use the brush to manipulate the crystals off the taped areas as well. Let the color dry for a short time until the glaze on the taped areas has gone matte. Remove the tape and stickers from the pattern before color has completely dried. Chipping off the glaze can occur if the glaze has dried too much. Note the removal of the tape and stickers to make sure all areas have them removed from the pattern. Use a clean-up tool to aid in removing the tape and stickers. Should any areas be lacking of crystals, use CB-404 Pointed Round to place crystals in the deficient areas.
  9. Use a damp sponge to remove any excess glaze that is on the trim and edge of the vase.
  10. Fire to Shelf Cone 05-06.

  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 stoneware bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe the bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a fan brush, apply 2 coats of UG-51 to the base of the vessel.
  3. Using a fan brush, apply 3 coats of SW-166 Norse blue to the top and inside of the vessel (you may want to thin some glaze and roll it on the inside if your vessel has a narrow opening).
  4. Use a pencil to draw a few circles randomly around the bottom. These will be the flowers so if you would prefer a pattern go for it.
  5. Mark the center of the circle and use a script liner to brush toward the center. Load your brush with UG-216 Peach and begin making the petals by touching the brush to the outside of the circle, pull down and apply pressure to the brush about ½ way down the petal and then lift again once you reach the center. Repeat this until all of the circles are flowers.
  6. Using a mini liner, apply 1 coat of either UG-90 Green Mist or UG-91 True Teal to create the stem for the leaves. We applied each branch one at a time to help with spacing.
  7. Using a script liner, apply 1 coat of the corresponding Underglaze to create the leaves. Press the brush at the top of the leaf and pull up as you brush down to create the round leaves. For the pointed leaves, begin lightly and press your brush in the middle and lift again. Repeat each brushstroke until your branch is full of leaves.
  8. Using a script liner, apply 1 coat of UG-217 Red Coral to the centers of the flowers and add any embellishments to fill in the design.
  9. Allow to dry and apply 2 coats of SW-001 Stoneware Clear to the bottom section.
  10. Use a damp sponge to wipe away any glaze that may have gotten on the foot.
  11. Fire to cone 5/6. Samples were fired to cone 6.

  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. On the DSS-0147 Island screen, locate the small pineapple. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with excess screen around the edges.
  3. Squeeze around 2 TBS of SC-15 onto the palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more silkscreen medium or glaze.
  4. Place the pineapple in the center of the plate. While holding the screen firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium, and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward.
  5. Wash the screen and repeat as pictured.
  6. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-11 Blue Yonder, SC-13 Grapel, SC-27 Sour Apple, SC-73 Candy Apple Red and SC-97 Cant-elope onto the palette. Thin each glaze with water so that they are the consistency of water.
  7. Using the Script Liner with thinned SC-73 Candy Apple Red, apply 1 coat to the left side of the pineapple. Dip the same brush into thinned SC-97 Cant-elope and apply 1 coat next to that coat. Dip the same brush into thinned SC-6 Sunkissed and apply 1 coat next to that coat. Dip the same brush into thinned SC-13 Grapel and apply 1 coat up to the right side of the pineapple. You can brush with water to help blend the colors. Repeat for all pineapples.

Silkscreen Design

  1. Mix desired underglaze (We used Jet Black UG-50) with a small amount of Silkscreen Medium (AC-310) with a pallet knife.
  2. Sprinkle a small amount of silkscreen medium into underglaze at a time, mixing thoroughly with pallet knife until you achieve a “peanut butter” or “toothpaste” constancy.
  3. Lay tissue paper on a dry surface. Choose desired silkscreen and place shiny side down on tissue paper.
  4. Transfer screen by picking up a small amount of mixed underglaze paste on your finger and starting in the center rub underglaze through screen in small circles until screen design is filly covered.
  5. Slowly pull screen away to reveal image.
  6. Repeat to create your own pattern on the tissue paper.
  7. Once dry, option to add color to the designs by adding one coat of an underglaze color into or overtop of the designs.
  8.  Let dry and store flat for use.

Traced Pattern

  1. Print out or draw desired pattern or design onto a paper that you can place under the tissue paper.
  2. Lay tissue flat over the design.
  3. Trace design with black underglaze using a brush.
  4. Once dry, option to add color to the designs by adding one coat of an underglaze color into or overtop of the designs.
  5. Let dry and store flat for use.

Feee-Hand

  1. Lay tissue paper down flat on a dry surface.
  2. Paint your own design or pattern onto the tissue with one coat of your desired color(s). Be sure not to apply underglaze thickly as it will crack off piece when fired.
  3. Let dry and store flat for use.

On Clay

  1. Cut desired piece(s) of transfer design with scissors.
  2. It is easier to work with multiple small pieces rather than one large piece, especially when transferring onto a curved surface.
  3. Option to add one coat of underglaze to clay as a background color and let dry before starting transfer.
  4. Place transfer in desired location on wet clay underglaze side down.
  5. Press into place with fingertips gently at first to be sure that design lays flat onto clay.
  6. Carefully smooth transfer down with a rib so that the paper is fully in contact with clay.
  7. If clay is not wet enough to fully saturate the tissue transfer, mist the transfer with some water and continue to press down into clay. Adding too much water can cause transfer to smear, only add small amounts at a time.
  8. Pull tissue back slowly to reveal design. Let dry and bisque piece to Cone 04 or apply clear coat overtop and once-fire.
  9. We suggest applying 2 coats of Crystal Clear Brushing (S- 2101) for low-fire clay bodies or Zinc Free Clear (SW-004) for mid-range clay bodies.

On Bisque

    1. Wipe bisque with a damp sponge to remove dust.
    2. Cut desired piece(s) of transfer design with scissors. It’s easier to work with multiple small pieces rather than one large piece, especially on curved surfaces.
    3. Place transfer in desired location on bisque underglaze side down.
    4. Hold flat and mist with water until tissue is saturated. Only add small amounts at a time. Apply pressure with sponge to transfer image
    5. Continue to add water and apply pressure little by little until transfer is successful.
    6. Pull tissue back slowly to reveal design.
    7. Allow to dry completely and fire to temperature of clay body used (05/06 or 5/6).
    8. We suggest applying 2 coats of Crystal Clear Brushing (S-2101) for low-fire clay bodies or Zinc Free Clear (SW-004) for mid-range clay bodies.
  1. Apply one coat of White Cobblestone (SG-202) inside the black areas revealed by removing the paper leaving a black outline around each shape.
  2. Tint the Cobblestone shapes by applying one coat of Candy Apple Red (SC-73) leaving the black outline around each shape .
  3. Allow to dry completely.
  4. Fire to Cone 06.

  1. Wipe off bisque with a damp sponge.
  2. Place tile over owl pattern and trace tile size around owl- keeping the owl in the center. If choosing to draw your own pattern, trace size of tile on paper to be sure your owl fits inside.
  3. Cut Clay Carbon Transfer Paper (AC-230) to size and tape to the back of owl pattern so the rough side is exposed.
  4. Be sure to only tape at the edge so the tape does not interfere with the transfer.
  5. Place paper and pattern on top of tile carbon paper side down and tape so it stays in place.
  6. Using a soft graphite pencil, trace lines of pattern applying enough pressure to transfer.
  7. You can check by pulling up one corner of your page that the transfer was successful while keeping other pieces of tape down to avoid needing to re-align.
  8. Remove paper once transfer is complete and set owl pattern aside to be used again.
  9. Trace the design on tile with a pencil so lines are easier to see when glazing.
  10. Graphite will burn out when piece is fired.

  3. Pick either the crab or fish pattern. Cut the pattern out of the paper. Place the pattern on the plate and trace. Then cut the pattern apart on the black lines. Trace each of those sections. This will give you an idea of where to stick the pieces of paper in the following steps.NOTE: For the fish, cut out the entire eye in this step. Don’t worry about the pupils. Don’t cut out the mouths on either pattern.
  4. Using the Soft Fan, apply 1 thick coat of glaze to each piece of paper and press it into position on the plate (glaze side down). When applying 2 colors to 1 piece of paper, randomly brush the first color, then brush the second color to fill in the missing spots. You want the colors to overlap and look random.

  1. Place the piece on the Banding Wheel. Fettle the seam lines off the leather-hard wet greenware gazing ball using the Clean Up Tool. Starting at the top of the ware using the Fret Tool, Scalpel or X-acto Knife to cut out the background sections on the piece. Always cut towards solid areas when possible to avoid cutting through a previous or unwanted section. Work you way around and down the ware cutting out all the background sections. Let Dry.
  2. Use the Clean Up Tool to further clean up the cut out portions on the ball. Remove the seam lines from the pedestal. Use the Green Grit Cloth to further sand the seam lines and clean up the cut out sections. Be careful working on the piece as it is very fragile. Moisten a Synthetic Sponge to remove any dust from the ware. Check the inside of the ball for rough edges and smooth them out as well.
  3. Fire to Shelf Cone 04-05.
  4. Shake and stir CG-753 Sassy Orange. Use CB-604 Soft Fan to apply 3 coats of glaze to the inside of the gazing ball being careful to not get any glaze on the exterior portions of the fret work. Use a Clean Up Tool and moistened Spoolie Brush to remove any color from the cut outs. Apply 3 coats to the middle section of the pedestal as well dispersing the crystals evenly. Let Dry.
  5. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan to apply one slightly thinned coat of SC-23 Jack-O-Lantern over the Sassy Orange on the pedestal. Let Dry.
  6. Place and center the pedestal on the Banding Wheel. Using CB-604 Soft Fan loaded with water and side tip the brush into SC-88 TuTu Tango. Starting at the bottom of the middle section, band the color upwards trailing the color to nothing. Repeat this process from the top of the middle section also. Color should be darkest at the bottom and top of the middle section fading out over the Jack-O-Lantern/ Sassy Orange.
  7. Brush 1-2 coats of SC-88 TuTu Tango to the lower inside portions of the ball feathering the color out about half way up.
  8. To the outside and of the ball apply 3 coats of EL-119 Burnished Steel using CB-604 Soft Fan. For the cut-out side edges on the outside use CB-406 Pointed Round. Try not to let the color run inside the ball over the other glazes. Apply 3 coats to the top and bottom sections of the pedestal.
  9. Optional Step for outside use. Brush 2-3 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing using CB-604 Soft Fan to the interior of the pedestal for outdoor use. This will aid in keeping the moisture from penetrating the bisque.

  1. Wipe down the bisque with a damp sponge to remove any dust or debris.
  2. Place several pieces of 1” Blue Masking Tape over the cut-out portions on the pumpkin. Secure the edges around the cut-outs well.
  3. In a Plastic Cup mix FN-040 Pumpkin with water to a melted ice cream consistency. Pour the mixture into the pumpkin. While working quickly, rotate the piece to cover the inside with glaze. Pour out excess color to drain. When the color has dried, remove the tape off the cut-out area. Use a damp sponge to remove any glaze that may have seeped out. Let dry.
  4. Apply 3 coats of EL-143 Cactus Flower to the outside of the pumpkin using CB-604 Soft Fan. Apply 3 coats of EL-142 Grass to the stem of the pumpkin using CB-406 Pointed Round.
  5. Place pumpkin on Lazy Susan or Banding Wheel for ease of applying glaze. Apply 1 flowing coat of SG-202 White Cobblestone to the outside of the pumpkin using CB-604 Soft Fan in vertical strokes. After the first coat has dried to a dull finish but still damp, apply the second coat in the same manner. Repeat this for the third coat. Don’t let the piece completely dry before going onto the next step.
  6. On a tile, thin some EL-122 Malachite to a non-fat milk consistency. Dribble the thinned color over the outside of the pumpkin. The glaze should have varying shades of the glaze due to overlapping of the color. Little or no bare cobblestone should be showing when done. Repeat this with some thicker glaze at various places on the pumpkin letting it trail/run down the sides.
  7. Optional Step: If transporting the piece for firing, a coat of AC-302 Wax Resist can be beneficial. This will keep the Cobblestone from flaking off during transport.
  8. Stilt and Fire the piece to Shelf Cone 05-06.

1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Roll Glaze the inside of the vase:  The ratio is 3 parts glaze to 1 part water.  Use FN-009 Black and water, mix and pour inside the vase and roll to coat. Cover the inside of the vase with the mixture.  Pour out the excess glaze and leave up side down to drain.  If you do not leave up side down the excess glaze could pool at the bottom of the vase and cause crawling.

3. Use the RB-144 #4 Soft Fan Brush to apply one coat of CG-996 Spring Rain over the outside of the vase. Be sure you use plenty of crystals.

4. Prepare your glazes in small cups to get ready to pour:  In separate cups, squeeze about 1″ of the following glazes and mix with 1 1/2 caps of water and stir. Use these colors: SC-9 Jaded,  SC-29 Blue Grass and SC-75 Orange-A-Peel.

5.  Pour SC-15 Tuxedo into the plastic tip bottle and thin with 1 cap of water.

5. This goes quickly, as you want to work while each color is wet.  Place the vase on a plate or foil then pour the colors over the piece. Turn the vase slightly to mingle the colors where they meet. Spray with water to get the glaze to move if needed.

6. Squeeze the thinned SC-15 Tuxedo onto the rim and let it drip down the vase. Spray with alcohol when the glaze is wet to aid movement and spreading of the glazes.

7.  Let dry, stilt and fire to cone 06.

  5. Once the entire design has been transferred, remove the stencil. Use a different sponge to remove any excess product from around the design. Keep your pouncing sponge dry so you don’t dilute the color!

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the Soft Fan with FN-001 White, apply 3 coats to the front and sides of the canvas.  
  3. Use the spray bottle and add some SC-74 Hot Tamale and mix in water.  You want a very thin glaze, like milk, to spray droplets on the front of the plate.  Make sure and clean out the spray bottle immediately after use so it doesn’t clog.
  4. Squeeze around 1 TBS of SC-74 Hot Tamale onto the palette. Thin with water. Using the Script Liner, dab a few large sections on the front of the canvas. Use water to make the sections “spread” to look like blood pooling.
  5. Squeeze around 1 TBS of SC-74 Hot Tamale onto the palette. Use the soft fan brush and apply one good coat to the hand. Press your hand onto the canvas
  6. Using your finger to write “HELP!”. Thin the glaze and let it drip from the bottom of the letters.  Holding the canvas at an angle will also help the glaze drip down from the bottom of the lettering. 
  7. Dip the Script Liner into the glaze from step 3 and hit the handle of the brush against your finger or another brush to create blood splatters. 
  8. Let Dry
  9. Apply clear glaze of choice.

  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Using the RB-144 Soft Fan brush apply one coat of FN-001 White to the front and sides of the canvas.
  3. Using a sturdy paper towel, dampen and wring out excess water.  By wetting the towel it keeps the towel from absorbing all of the glaze.
  4. Lay the towel out flat and in horizontal strips squirt on the following colors:  SC-16 Cotton  Tail 90% of the towel, SC-60 Silver Lining about 50% and only 5 lines of  Gray Hare as it is a dark color.
  5. Fold the paper towel in half vertically, with your hands press the towel to slightly blend the colors, then open the paper towel.
  6. Lay the paper towel down with glaze side up and lay the canvas onto the towel.  Lightly press with, your hands, the canvas onto the paper towel to transfer the colors from the towel to the bisque. Wrap the towel around the sides of the canvas.
  7. Remove the paper towel.
  8. To remove the excess glaze you can use a 2″ foam paint roller across the front and wipe off. Or you can use a dry synthetic sponge to blot off the excess glaze and wipe the sponge on another paper towel
  9. Allow to dry.
  10. Center the soldier pattern on the canvas and create the ground about 1″ from the bottom of the canvas.  Either use the clay carbon paper and trace the pattern onto the canvas or cut out the pattern and trace around..  If the glaze is too damp the clay carbon paper will not work.  Note:  test the clay carbon paper to see which side of the paper transfers.  Lay the clay carbon paper on the canvas, place the pattern on top of the clay carbon paper and with an ink pen trace the pattern.
  11. Alternative tracing method:  If the glaze is dry to the touch, but still a little damp, you can place the pattern on the canvas and trace with a pin (red is nice so you see where you traced) and press firmly.  This will make an indentation into the glaze for you to follow.
  12. Use the Script Liner to apply 1-2 coats of SC015 Tuxedo to create the silhouette.
  13. Blow up the balloon.
  14. Squeeze out a puddle of the following colors:  SC-73 Candy Apple Red and SC74 Hot Tamale onto a palette.
  15. Press the balloon into the SC-74 Hot Tamale, the dab into the SC-73 Candy Apple Red.  Then press onto the canvas.  Tip: practice on a tile or paper first.  We found holding the balloon with two hands helps steady the balloon and it does not require much pressure to transfer the glaze.
  16. Repeat the process for 3 flowers.
  17. Dot the center of the poppy with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  18. Use the RB-10 10/0 Detail Liner to form the stem of the flower using SC-15 Tuxedo.
  19. Dip in clear glaze or use S-2101 brush on for the front of the canvas.
  20. Stilt and fire to cone 05/06.  NOTE:  It is important to evenly stilt the Clay Canvas, if not it will warp.  Options:  A. Do not glaze the back of the canvas and dry foot. B. Use bar stilts and place across each corner. C.  Use two large, three prong stilts across the back to provide even support.

  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Trace on the pattern.
  3. Punch out 5 round shapes from the circle punch.
  4. Using the RB-106 Script Liner apply 1 coat of SC-24 Dandelion to the plate where the ornament will go.  Then paint one coat of SC-24 Dandelion to the paper dot.  Press the dot onto the painted spot on the plate.  Use a sponge to wipe back any excess glaze that squeezes out.
  5. Place SL-441 Spots Stencil on the plate. Use a sponge on a stick to apply a soft coat of SC-65 Peri-Twinkle to the stencil. It is a light application of glaze for a slight background, not solid coverage. applied to a curved area press on the stencil to flatten then use a press a twist motion with the sponge on a stick. Stay away from the traced tree pattern.
  6. Fill a AC-220 Detailer Bottle with SC-73 Candy Apple Red.  Fill in the detail of the tree and the trunk with the bottle of glaze.
  7. Remove the paper circles. Remove paper before the glaze is dry so the edges do not chip.
  8. When the red glaze is dry silkscreen the bell onto the yellow dot.  Using a palette knife mix SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium  to the consistency of peanut butter.  Use the small bell ornament from DSS-0133 Merry Christmas. With the shiny side down, rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen in the space left from the paper circle shapes.
  9. Fill in with SC-73 Candy Apple Red around the ornaments, as the circle shape may have been a tad larger than the silkscreen.
  10. Brush two coats of SC-24 Dandelion over the star.  Use the RB-110 Detail Liner to outline the star  with SC-15 Tuxedo and add a hook to the ornament so it looks like it is attached to the tree and outline the star.
  11. Optional:  Float a shadow under the tree with RB-106 Script Liner use SC-73 Hot Tamale.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Use a Dremel tool to drill 5 holes in the MB-1457 Pinwheel (small).
  3. Use the Soft Fan to apply two liberal coats of EL-103 Sea Spray to the front of both Pinwheels. NOTE: This is a technique based application of EL-103 Sea Spray. CG-985 Monet’s Pond is an Elements-based glaze. So by laying down a coat of Elements, it gives a little more movement.
  4. Using the same brush apply two coats of CG-985 Monet’s Pond to the front and back of the large pinwheel. NOTE: Do not apply glaze where the rod goes on the large pinwheel. The rod adheres better to an unglazed area.
    On the large pinwheel plop PC-601 Clear Cascade and PC-602 White Cascade randomly on the front of the large pinwheel.
  5. Large pinwheel: Apply a coat of CG-985 Monet’s Pond over both of the Cascades.
  6. With the soft fan brush randomly plop CG-996 Spring Rain over the front of the pinwheel.
  7. Small Pinwheel: Apply one coat of CG-996 Spring Rain to the front and back of the small pinwheel. It is ok to glaze where the rod area.
  8. Use the Soft Fan Brush and plop PC-601 Clear Cascade and PC-602 White Cascade randomly on the front of the pinwheel.
  9. Apply a second coat of CG-996 Spring Rain over both of the Cascades. By sandwiching the Cascades between the glazes, it enhances movement and helps knock down some of the strong white cascades.
  10. Stack the small pinwheel on the large pinwheel – centered.
  11. Pour 1″ of SC-73 Candy Apple Red, 1/2″ alcohol and 1/4″ of water and mix well. Leave the pinwheel laying flat on the table. Squirt the mixture in a random pattern on the pinwheel. Since there are red crystals in the glaze, this mixture compliments the crystal glaze.
  12. Squirt the SG-201 Black Cobblestone over the pinwheels in a circular and random manner. When the Cobblestone glaze fires it will break up and create an interesting finish.
  13. Clean out the holes on the small pinwheel.
  14. Silt and fire to cone 05/06.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Use a Dremel Tool, drill 5 holes in the MB-1457 Pinwheel (small).
  3. Using the Soft Fan to apply one liberal coat of PC-601 Clear Cascade over the front of both pinwheels.  The PC-601 Clear Cascade helps the next coat of glaze to move and interact.
  4. Using the Soft Fan to apply two coats of CG-756 Firecracker to the front and back of the MB-1458 Super Pinwheel (large).  NOTE: Do not glaze the area where the rod goes on the large pinwheel.  It attaches better to an unglazed surface.
  5. Using the Soft Fan, apply two coats of SG-753 Sassy Orange to the front and back of the MB-1457 Pinwheel (small). It is ok to cover where the rod goes since the pinwheels will be stacked.
  6. Use the Soft Fan Brush and plop PC-601 Clear Cascade and PC-602 White Cascade randomly on the front of each pinwheel.
  7. Use the Soft Fan to randomly plop CG-753 Sassy Orange over some of the Cascades and on top of the Firecracker on the large pinwheel. Plop CG-756 Firecracker over both of the Cascades and on top of the Sassy Orange on the small pinwheel. By sandwiching the Cascades between the glazes, it enhances movement and helps knock down some of the strong white cascades.
  8. While glaze is drying, pour SG-201 Black Cobblestone into the AC-220 Detail Bottle.  Snip the tip for a small opening.
  9. Stack the small pinwheel on top of the large pinwheel (center).
  10. Squirt the SG-201 Black Cobblestone over the pinwheels in a circular and random manner.  When the Cobblestone glaze fires it will break up and create an interesting finish.
  11. Clean out the holes on the small pinwheel.  Embellishments will be added after fired.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

Mug #1 Ridged Mug

  1. Using the BR-144 #4 Soft Fan Brush apply three coats of EL-146 Rain Cloud to the inside and outside rim of the mug in a circular motion (going around the mug, not up and down)  The outside band width of glaze is about 1 1/4″ or the width of the Soft Fan brush.
  2. Key:  To give the glaze a stoneware look with ridges, load the brush and press on side of the brush apply a heavy coat of glaze.  Almost holding the brush sideways to apply heavy on one side and lighter on the other.  Using the application apply three heavy coats of EL-144 Dark Amethyst to the outside of the mug.  Again applying the glaze in a circular motion.  Make sure and overlap the band of EL-146 Rain Cloud so the colors blend seamlessly.
  3. Allow to dry.
  4. Stilt and fire cone 05/06.

Mug #2 Stamped Mug

  1. Using the RB-144 #4 Soft Fan Brush apply three coats of EL-147 Creek Bed in a circular motion to the inside of the mug and the outside rim.  For the outside rim apply the glaze the width of the Soft Fan Brush.
  2. Apply the same color to the handle of the mug – three coats.
  3. Outside of the mug:  Use the soft fan brush to apply in a circular motion two coats of EL-145 Ginger Root.  Make sure to overlap and blend the EL-145 Ginger Root into the EL-147 Creek Bed.
  4. Application of wood grain stamp:  If a new stamp clean off to remove the sizing residue.  Lay flat on the table to apply color.  Pour about the size of a quarter of SG401 Designer Liner Black onto a palette.  Blot the sponge-on-a stick into the glaze and then off to the size blot the sponge again to remove excess glaze.
  5. In a light, up and down pouncing motion apply the SG-401 Designer Liner Black to the ST-133 Woodgrain Stamp.  Keep the glaze on the high part of the stamp to ensure a clean transferred image.
  6. Press the glazed up stamp onto the mug.  Due to the flexibility of the stamp it will wrap around the mug.  Press gently, do not stretch or slide and then remove the stamp.
  7. Note:  SG-401 Designer Liner is used instead of SC-15 Tuxedo because Designer Liner is pure pigment and will keep its true color.  Typically Stroke & Coat™ changes color when used with an Element.  In this case SC-15 Tuxedo would become brown.
  8. Allow to dry.
  9. Stilt and fire to cone 05/06

Mug #3 Textile Mug

  1. Using the RB-144 #4 Soft Fan Brush apply in a circular motion three coats of either EL-147 Creek Bed or EL-144 Dark Amethyst inside of the mug and one brush width to the upper rim of the mug.
  2. Using the same brush, apply two coats of El-146 Rain Cloud to the bottom section on the outside of the mug.
  3. Be sure to overlap the top rim color about 1/2″ so the colors blend.
  4. Measure the circumference of the mug with the burlap trim and cut to fit.
  5. Place the burlap into water to wet and wring out the excess water.
  6. While the second coat of glaze is still wet, press the burlap trim around the lower section of the mug.
  7. Using the Soft Fan, apply one coat of EL-146 Rain Cloud over the burlap trim to seal down the trim and prevent the next color from seeping under.
  8. Use a paper towel onto the burlap trim to press into the glaze and to remove excess moisture. Allow the shine to go away before applying the next glaze.
  9. Using the Soft Fan, apply one coat of SG-201 Black Cobblestone over the burlap trim only. The glaze will go through the open spaces to create a design.
  10. Let the glaze set up a bit then remove the burlap. Wash and reuse or toss.
  11. Allow to dry.  For best result put in the kiln and let dry.  That way the SG-201 Cobblestone is not knocked off.
  12. Stilt and fire cone 05/06.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of FN-001 White to the canvas.
  3. Cut out the flamingo pattern, cutting the wing separately from the body. Punch out the circles from paper.
  4. Holding the paper flamingo body in position on the canvas, brush water under the paper area, then press the paper into the wet glaze. Add the wing next to the body and scatter the paper circles using water to adhere. Gently press the shapes with a paper towel to remove excess water. Note: Keep the negative cut out from the paper.
  5. Pour FN-001 White onto a tile and squirt SC-11 Blue Yonder next to the white. Using the plastic card, pick up both colors at once. Drag the color onto the canvas over the paper to create a watery look. Use the card to pick-up SC-10 Teal Next Time and SC-28 Blue Isle, then loosely apply one coat of these colors to the canvas.
  6. Remove the neck paper piece only. Carefully wet the area surrounding the flamingo and adhere the negative shape of the flamingo onto the canvas. Use the Script Liner to apply one coat of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral to the neck and body.
  7. Use the wedge-shaped sponge to dab SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral, SC-22 Carrot Top and a little bit of SC-88 Tu Tu Tango onto the neck. Float SC-88 Tu Tu Tango around the edges of the neck to deepen the color.
  8. Remove the paper wing section. Cut out a neck and body section from the second pattern and place over the painted neck and body. Use the Soft Fan and Script Liner to apply one coat of SC-2 Melon-Choly to the wing. Place the Tire Tracks stencil on the wing area and use the foam roller to gently apply SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral. Remove the stencil and the paper pieces from the canvas.
  9. Use the Script Liner to apply two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the beak. Place the SL-444 Argyle Stencil over the beak. Gently roll or dab FN-001 White over a small portion of the stencil to create a highlight. (Alternatively, you can highlight the beak by brushing FN-001 White into the wet glaze on the middle section of the beak.) Use the Liner to apply SC-15 Tuxedo to create the eye.
  10. Fire to cone 05/06.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Fill AC-220 Detail Bottles using this formula: 1″ of glaze, 1/4″ of water, 1/2″ Rubbing Alcohol – mix well with brush bristles. You will need a bottle and the formula for each of the following colors: SC-29 Blue Grass, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and SC-97 Cant-elope.
  3. Fill the NP-302P Squeeze Bottle with Rubbing Alcohol (do not dilute) and top with MM-600 Spritzer Cap.
  4. Mark the toilet paper roll about 1 1/4″ up. Cut strips about 1/4″ wide all the way around the tube. Bend the strips back so the cut pieces lay out flat like a flower.
  5. Using the Soft Fan Brush, apply two coats of FN-001 White to the front of the Coupe Dinner Plate.
  6. While the second coat of glaze is still wet squirt the three glaze colors onto the front of the plate in a random fashion.
  7. Mist the glaze with the rubbing alcohol.
  8. Use the sponge-on-a stick to apply SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and tip with SC-97 Cant-elope to the toilet paper tube flower. Press to the plate, you may need to use your fingers to make sure the tube makes contact with the glaze to the plate. Do this a couple of times until you get a full flower with many different petals. Place two flowers of this color on the front of the plate.
  9. Repeat the process, but this time create one flower with SC-75 Orange-A-Peel tipped with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  10. Using the Script Liner, apply two coats of SC-27 Sour Apple to the centers. Allow to dry.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the Soft Fan Brush, apply two coats of FN-001 White to the front of the Coupe Dinner Plate. Allow to dry (shine fades) before applying the second layer of glaze.
  3. Mark the toilet paper tube about 1 1/4″ up. Cut strips about 1/4″ wide all the way around the tube. Bend the strips back so the cut pieces lay out flat like a flower.
  4. When decorating the plate, you will work from the center out to the rim.
  5. Use the sponge-on-a-stick and apply SC-6 Sunkissed to the toilet paper roll flower. Stamp create flowers by pressing this down in a circle to the middle of the plate. Re-apply glaze to toilet roll as needed.
  6. Now use the sponge-on-a stick to apply SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and stamp on the outside of the SC-6 Sunkissed flower and overlap the petals so the colors blend into each other.
  7. The next section of flowers will be SC-74 Hot Tamale applied in the same fashion. Continue working your way out to the edge. You can add some SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to the SC-74 Hot Tamale.
  8. The front of the plate will be covered with rows of flowers that blend out to the edge.
  9. Using the end of a brush or pencil use SC-15 Tuxedo to dot the centers of the flower.
  10. Use Detail Liner to randomly outline the flowers to give it form. The outlining is loose and not precise.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the Soft Fan Brush, apply 2 coats of FN-001 White to the front of the Coupe Dinner Plate. Allow to dry (shine fades) before applying the second layer of glaze.
  3. Cut out the Llama Pattern. It will act as a masking tool.
  4. Using the Soft Fan Brush use water to wet the area where the pattern will be placed. Lay down the pattern and use a damp sponge to seal the paper to the plate.
  5. While the pattern is on the plate, take a pen or the back of your brush and trace the details on the llama pattern. It will leave an indention into the glaze.
  6. Trace the flower pattern to the background.
  7. Paint the center of each of the flowers with two coats of SC-6 Sunkissed, except the Yellow flower which has an SC-75 Orange-A-Peel center.
  8. Using the Script Liner, apply one heavy or two light coats of the following colors for the flower petals: SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-11 Blue Yonder, SC-74 Hot Tamale and SC-75 Orange-A-Peel.
  9. Using the Soft Fan Brush, apply two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the front of the plate, painting around the flowers and in between the petals. When painting over the paper, place your brush on the paper and glaze outwards. If you paint up against the paper you run a chance of the glaze seeping under the paper and bleeding.
  10. Put the flower pattern back down and sgraffito around the flower petals and the center of the flowers. The sgraffito does not have to perfectly outline the flowers. Sometimes a little off center is interesting. Remove the pattern and sgraffito the leaves and around the flowers and the centers.
  11. Using the Soft Fan brush apply one coat of SG-701 Speckta-Clear Star Dust over the front of the plate over the black and the flowers.
  12. Remove the paper. Use a pencil to mark the dented areas if needed.
  13. Using the Script Liner, apply two coats of SC-86 Old Lace to the muzzle.
  14. Using the same brush, apply one coat of SC-2 Melon-Choly to the shaded part of the ears. Don’t clean off the SC-86 Old Lace as it helps lighten the SC-2 Melon-Choly.
  15. Sponge SC-2 Melon-Choly to the cheeks or muzzle area. Lightly dab the color.
  16. For the fur: Use the Script Liner and SC-35 Gray Hare around the muzzle and to swipe a coat to the fluffy areas of fur. Lightly blend a little of the SC-35 Gray Hare under the eyelashes.
  17. Use the Detail Liner and SC-11 Blue Yonder to paint the eyes. Use the Detail Liner and SC-15 Tuxedo to paint the eyelashes, nose and mouth. Add a white dot on the eyes and nose as a highlight.
  18. Sgraffito a line at the top of the fluff to give added depth.
  19. Using the Soft Fan Brush apply one coat of S-2101 Brush Clear Glaze over the Llama. This is an insurance coat to make sure you did not sgraffito to the bare bisque.
  20. Using the Soft Fan Brush apply three coats of SC-15 Tuxedo the back of the plate. Allow to dry.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Position the bird screen on a piece of paper, with the shiny side down. Hold the screen on the paper with one hand and rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen onto the paper using a finger. This will create a template/mask.
  3. Cut out the body of the bird from DSS-0108 Aviary-Small Birds in paper. Trace around the bird on the tile.
  4. Using CB-106 Script Liner, apply two coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the bird area.
  5. Brush a coat of water over the cotton Tail, and press on the paper bird, to act as a mask. Blot with a sponge to adhere completely.
  6. Using CB-604 Soft Fan, apply two coats of FN-053 Mint over the tile, but not over the entire bird.
  7. Place SL-431 Bloom on the tile under the bird, and roll with 2″ foam roller with SC-79 It’s Sage. Roll lightly in all directions to avoid glaze seeping under the stencil.
  8. Remove the paper bird.
  9. Place some SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile and sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife, mix color and medium to the consistency of peanut butter.  If the mix is too thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if it is too thick add more Stroke & Coat. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image.  Too thick of a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give blank areas in your screen.
  10. Match up the bird screen from DSS-0108 Aviary-Small Birds to the Cotton Tail, and with the shiny side down, rub the thickened Tuxedo mix over the screen.
  11. Using the music lines from DSS-0124 Music, place shiny side down, and screen.

  2. Fill AC-220 Detail Bottles using the following formula: 1″ of glaze, 1/4″ water, 1/2″ Rubbing Alcohol mix well.  Use these colors: SC-12 Moody Blue, SC-26 Green Thumb, SC-29 Blue Grass, SC-97 Cant-elope. 
  3. Fill the MM-66 Mister Bottle with Rubbing Alcohol.
  4. Using the  Soft Fan apply two coats of FN-001 White to the front of the clipboard. Let the shine fade from the first coat of glaze before applying the second coat.
  5. While the second coat of glaze is still wet, squirt SC-26 Green Thumb, SC-29 Blue Grass and SC-97 Cant-elope in a random fashion across the front of the clipboard. Mist with the MM-66 Mister bottle full of alcohol.  You will see the glaze create unique patterns. Let dry.
  6. Cut out the fish pattern.
  7. When the glaze is dry enough, lay the pattern on the clipboard and lightly trace around the pattern with a water-based marker or a pencil. Leave the pattern down for the next step. It will mask off the fish.
  8. Using the sponge-on-a-stick and SC-15 Tuxedo, ink up the ST-126 Dots and Squiggles stamp. Tap the sponge-on-a-stick into the SC-15 Tuxedo glaze then, blot off the excess glaze. Take the sponge-on-a-stick and LIGHTLY pounce it up and down on the stamp so that the glaze transfers to the high part of the design. If the glaze goes into the crevices clean the stamp and start over or you will not get a good design.
  9. Apply the glazed stamp around the fish pattern. It is ok to press over the paper for the illusion the stamp goes behind the fish.
  10. Use the back end of the brush or the tip of the pencil and dot the eye of the fish with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  11. Remove the paper.
  12. Use the Detail Liner and AC-302 Wax Resist and apply one coat around the fish and the tendrils.   Wax the eye and dorsal fin outline.  Make small dots with the wax on the back end of the fish’s body. IMPORTANT:  The only way to remove wax is to burn off in the kiln.  Once the wax hits the bisque, it will do its job and mask off the area.  If you have an oopsie, make it work as part of the pattern.
  13. To paint the fish body, use the bottles with glaze and squeeze SC-12 Moody Blue and SC-29 Blue Grass fill in the area between the wax lines.  The wax dots will resist the glaze.
  14. Apply 1-2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the sides and back of the clipboard.  Let dry
  15. Stilt and fire to cone 05/06.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Select which turtle you will glaze and assemble the glazes.
  3. Pour SG-201 Cobblestone Black into a AC-220 Detail Liner Bottle – do not dilute
  4. Pour some SC-97 Cant-elope or SC-29 Blue Grass into a AC-220 Detail Liner Bottle.
  5. Using the 2 oz. plastic cup, pour your Elements glaze into separate cups. Now add 1 tsp of water and mix to thin the Elements glaze. If doing Turtle #1 use EL-142 Grass & El-145 Ginger Root. Turtle #2 El-143 Cactus Flower and EL-145 Ginger Root.
  6. Using the RB-144 #4 Soft Fan Brush apply one liberal coat of either CG-992 Mint Chip or CG-995 Foggy Mist to the shell of the turtle (not the body).
  7. Holding on to the head or legs, pick up a cup of the glaze that has been diluted and pour over the shell, leaving blank areas for the next color.
  8. Pick up the second Element color and pour over the shell in the black areas. Turning and moving the turtle helps blend the glazes. Let the glaze drip over the edge of the shell for coverage.
  9. Use your fingers or a brush to move some of the glaze and insure that the shell is covered.
  10. Once the shell is covered with glaze, take the AC-220 Detail Liner Bottle with SG-201 Cobblestone Black – squirt the Cobblestone glaze into the wet Element glaze.
  11. Same step with the SC-97 Cant-elope or SC-29 Blue Grass. Squirt randomly over the turtle shell.
  12. Let the glaze set up and dry a bit before cleaning up the head and legs.
  13. Use a damp sponge to wipe off any excess glaze from the head and legs.
  14. Use the SG-401 Black Designer Liner to outline the facets on the turtles head and legs. Remember – Designer Liner is meant to be a thin application. If applied like a dimensional glaze it will pop off since it contains no frit.
  15. Allow to dry.
  16. Using the Soft Fan Brush apply two coats of EL-130 Sea Green to the head, legs and underneath the turtle.
  17. Fire to cone 05/06.

3310 Under the Sea Whale and Mermaid Plate under-the-sea-whale-and-mermaid-plate https://www.maycocolors.com/projects/under-the-sea-whale-and-mermaid-plate/ https://www.maycocolors.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/MB1429_under-the-sea-mermaid-plate_w_web.jpg Marcia Roullard
  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Fill three detailer bottles (AC-220) with 1″ of color, 1/4″ of water and 1/2″ of alcohol. Use SC-11 Blue Yonder, SC-30 Blue Dawn and SC-76 Cara-Bein Blue. Snip the top just large enough to make a small opening. Stir and shake well.
  3. Use the Soft Fan to apply two liberal coats of FN-211 Sheer Blue to the top of the whale plate. While the second coat is wet, squeeze on drops of the three colors mixed with alcohol, leaving room for expansion of the glaze. Drop SC-76 Cara-Bein Blue onto the edge of the tray to create a border. Let dry.  NOTE: It is important to work while the Foundations glaze is wet.
  4. Use a dry erase marker to color the shiny side of the mermaid and fish silkscreens. Wipe off with a soft rag or paper towel. This will allow you to better see the screen image.
  5. On a palette, tint NT-BR Clear Brushing Glaze with food coloring. Use a palette knife to thicken the glaze with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter. Position the silkscreens on the whale plate with the shiny side down. Rub the thickened mix over the DSS-0157 Under the Sea images. This is for placement only.
  6. Remove the dark drops of color from the flesh areas of the mermaid as they may show through the Cashew Later glaze.
  7. Using the Detail Liner or the Script Liner, apply two coats of the following colors to the fish: SC-15 Tuxedo, SC-16 Cotton Tail and SC-75 Orange-A-Peel.  Refer to the image for placement.2. Using the Script Liner apply two coats of SC-11 Blue Yonder and SC-13 Grapel to the mermaid tail. Apply one coat of SC-11 Blue Yonder over the entire mermaid tail.  Apply one coat of SC-13 Grapel in the center of the tail and the fins, then repeat one more time. This will help blend the colors. You want the edges of the SC-13 Grapel to blend into the SC-11 Blue Yonder.

    3. The splash and bubbles are two coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail. You’ll apply 1 coat of SG-701 Speckta-Clear Star Dust over the white after silkscreening the final image.

    4. Use a palette knife to thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter. Line up the mermaid tail silkscreen over the painted image. Hold firmly so the silkscreen does not move or slide and rub the product through the silkscreen.  This will give the outline and details to the images.

    5. Fish: You can either use the silkscreen with SC-15 Tuxedo for detail or use the Detail Liner to outline and add details.

    6. Whale – Use the Detail Liner and apply one coat of SC-15 Tuxedo to the mouth of the whale. For the eye, paint one coat of SC-15 Tuxedo to the center, one coat of SC-16 Cotton Tail around the black pupil and then circle the white with the black.  Add a dot of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the top right of the black pupil.

    7. Use the Script Liner to apply one coat of SG-701 Speckta-Clear Star Dust over the splash, bubbles and mermaid tail.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Brush the tile with two coats of FN-001 White with CB-604 Soft Fan.
  3. To apply color to the MT-012 Ikat Mat use a large sponge-on-a-stick. Press the sponge into the glaze and then dab it off to the side on the palette. You do not want globs of glaze on the sponge. Begin with SC-12 Moody Blue, with a light up and down pouncing motion ink up a section of the mat. Work fast so the colors do not dry. With the same method overlap SC-97 Cant-Elope over the edge of the SC-12 Moody Blue and the next section. Do the same process with SC-24 Dandelion to the center. Then reverse the colors with the sponge to finish the pattern. Press the tile to the mat to transfer the color.
  4. Using the RB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the cat pattern on the tile. While the glaze is damp, scratch out the fur and facial design from the black glaze with a sgraffito tool. Be careful not to scratch down through the FN-001 White.
  5. Using the RB-144 #4 Soft Fan brush apply 1 coat of S-2101 Clear glaze to the front of the tile.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the Soft Fan, apply two coats of S-77 Glo-Worm to the front of the tile. Let dry.
  3. Using the same brush, wet the surface of the tile with either water or a thin coat of SC-77 Glo-Worm. Place SL-431 Bloom Stencil into the wet surface and press to set into the glaze. Use a paper towel to press down the stencil to make sure glaze does not blend underneath. With a damp sponge, remove some of the glazes from the open sections of the stencil.
  4. Using the Soft Fan, apply two coats of CG-756 Firecracker over the SL-431 Boom Stencil. Allow the shine to go away between coats.
  5. When the gloss leaves the second coat of CG-756 Firecracker, remove the stencil. If some of the petals are lacking crystals apply a few more with the Script Liner.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Cut out the body only of the bird. Place it onto the tile and trace around the outside edge.
  3. Using the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply one heavy coat of FN-001 White to fill in the bird. Glaze just a little past the line so that when the paper is placed over the image it acts as a masking tool and the entire bird is glazed.
  4. Using the same brush and with just water wet the painted area and then press the paper bird on the wet glaze. Use a damp sponge to press down the bird making sure there are no wrinkles or gaps.
  5. Using the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply two heavy coats of FN-001 White into the sky area and swirl in SC-65 Peri-twinkle.
  6. Apply two heavy coats of SC-65 Peri-twinkle to the remainder of the tile. Let dry.
  7. Wet the area where the stencil will be placed with the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan brush and water. Place the Bloom stencil on the left corner of the tile which will overlap the paper bird. Use a paper towel to press down the stencil to prevent bleeding.
  8. Use the sponge-on-a-stick to apply SC-31. Dab the sponge-on-a-stick into the glaze, then blot it off to the side. You don’t want blobs of glaze on the sponge as this is what causes bleeding under the stencil The Blues mixed with SC-65 Peri-twinkle to fade the color. Now apply the color with a light up and down pouncing over the stencil. Don’t try to get solid coverage with one coat, pounce the sponge several times for coverage.
  9. Use a palette knife to thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter. With the shiny side down, place the DSS-018 Aviary- Small Bird screen on the space created from the paper bird. Rub the mixture over the screen from the center out to push the mixture through the silkscreen pattern. Repeat for the music notes.
  10. Fire to cone 05/06.

  2. In a plastic cup mix well 2 parts UG-52 Silver Grey, 1 part UG-198 Dark Grey and 1 part C-300 Matt Transparent.
  3. Cut out the 5 major flowers from the pattern. Try not to destroy the remaining pattern. Position the main pattern with the cut out areas and lightly draw the outlines for positioning of the flowers. Wet the backs of the flowers with water and place them in their spots according to the pattern creating a stencil. Make sure the edges of the flowers are secure to the bisque.
  4. Using CB-604 Soft Fan loaded with the underglaze mixture to apply 3 coats to the lid of the box. Once the last coat of color has been applied and the glossy sheen is gone, remove the flower cut outs from the pattern using a Clean Up Tool. If the color has dried completely, remoisten the area with water or with another coat of the underglaze mixture. This will prevent chipping of the edges of the stencils in removal process.
  5. Apply 3-4 coats of FN-301 Marshmallow White to the five flowers using CB-404 Pointed Round. Let dry.
  6. Using CB-404 Pointed Round paint in some swatches of color to the five flowers centers using SC-95 Pinky Swear and SC-6 Sunkissed. Colors can overlap but do not completely cover the white matte glaze.
  7. Thin some SC-15 Tuxedo to a watery ink consistency and paint in the flowers detail lines. Keep this color weak and faint as to not overpower the pattern.
  8. Transfer the pattern back onto the ware using AC-230 Clay Carbon and a pencil.
  9. Use CB-202 Detail Liner to apply 3 coats of SC-79 It’s Sage to the areas noted leaves and stems on the pattern. Apply 3 coats of SC-39 Army Surplus darkened with a drop or two of SC-15 Tuxedo and paint in the rose leaves and stems on the buds.
  10. Apply 3 coats of SC-16 Cottontail to the flower buds and some of the smaller flowers in the pattern. Paint in some of the other smaller flowers with SC-1 Pink-A- Boo. Dot in the centers of the white small flowers with SC-1 Pink-A- Boo and the SC-6 Sunkissed to the pink small flowers.

Using CB-110 Liner to apply one coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing over the Detail Liner flowers, scrolls and leaves. Try not to get the clear glaze on the background areas. Fill in the lattice leaves with 2 coats of Clear Glaze.
  12. Using SD-402 White to paint in the dots in the background of the pattern. Randomly apply the dots to fill in the area trying not to do a poke-a- dot pattern. The dots are meant to add interest and be a part of the design. The key is to be random in their placement.
  13. To the inside of the box and lid apply 3 coats of FN-024 Grey using CB-604 Soft Fan.
  14. To the outside of the box bottom apply 3-4 coats of FN-301 Marshmallow White using CB-604 Soft Fan.

1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Using the AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper trace on the heart pattern in the center of the lid.  Only one side of the AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper transfers the design. So test which side transfers before you spend time tracing.  Lay the Clay Carbon Paper on the bisque, place the pattern on top of the Clay Carbon paper and use a pen or pencil to trace the lines.  Periodically check to make sure the image transfers.

3. Use the various Designer Liner colors, the order doesn’t matter,  create the lines on the lid.  To achieve the illusion of a dimensional design with a color of choice, start at the edge of the lid and draw a straight line of color until you reach the design.  When you get to the heart design curve the line up to an arch and then when you reach the opposite of the heart design go back to a straight line to the edge of the lid.   Repeat until the entire lid is covered with the lines.  The heart pattern is the only place the lines will be curved.

4. When the glaze dries or the shine is off of the glaze shade the heart.  Using the CB-106 Script Liner, thin SC-12 Moody Blue with water and shade around the heart.  The color will be lighter on the outer edge and darker closer to the heart.   This will make the heart pop off the design.

5.  Using the CB-604 Soft Fan brush apply  3-4 coats of FN-003 Red to the entire heart box bottom and the inside of the lid if you choose

6.  Use clear glaze of choice and glaze the lid.  If the base is covered with FN-003 you can skip the dip, or clear glaze.

7. Fire to cone 05/06.

On the next screen, re-tape the corner to the screened side. Match up the stripes at the corner and continue around the border matching up all the stripes at the middle angles and the corners.

Tape another piece of 1/2″ tape next to the 1/8″ tape. Remove the 1/8″ tape.  Use the CB-106 #6 Script Liner to apply two coats of SC-36 Irish Luck to the open space. Remove the tape.

  2. Mix FN-036 Grape (approx. 2 oz.) with water to a melted ice cream consistency in a Plastic Cup. Pour the thinned glaze into the vase and while working quickly, rotate the vase to coat the inside of the vase.   Pour out excess glaze and invert vase to drain and dry. Use a moistened sponge to remove any drips from the outside of the vase.
  3. Apply 1 even coat of FN-001 White to the one side of the vase using CB-604 Soft Fan. Let dry.
  4. Print 2 copies of the pattern. Cut out the basic pattern shape on one copy of the bunny excluding the grassy areas around the bunny and eggs. Check to see that the pattern fits the side of the vase. Apply one generous, but even coat of FN-001 White to the back side of the cut out pattern with CB-604 Soft Fan. While working quickly as to not let the glaze dry on the paper, apply the pattern to the vase over the dried white glaze to adhere it to the vase.   Press and make sure all the edges have securely adhered to the vase. This will be your stencil.
  5. Apply 3 even coats of FN-011 Light Blue over the entire outside of the vase using CB-604 Soft Fan. Do not over apply glaze completely over the papered area. Just make sure that the glaze overlaps onto the paper around all edges of the pattern. After the last coat of glaze has been applied and is still damp, remove the paper stencil before it completely dries. Check to make sure no uneven areas are on the white glaze surface.   Finger smooth any uneven white glaze. Check and make sure all of the paper stencils has been removed. Let dry.
  6. Retrace the pattern onto the ware using a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon. Include the grass areas.
  7. Using CB-404 Pointed Round loaded with water and tipped with SC-92 Café Ole to shade the edges of the bunny. Pay attention to where the pattern shapes overlap one another.   Darken the shading where the shadows of the pattern overlap the Café Ole with SC-41 Brown Cow in the same manner.
  8. The inside of the ears are shaded with SC-1 Pink-A-Boo. Shade the top portions of the bunny’s cheeks also. Apply two coats to saturate the shading.Paint in the nose with 2-3 coats of Pink-A-Boo using CB-404 Pointed Round.
  9. Shade the tummy and tuff of hair on the tummy with SC-35 Gray Hare in the same manner and brush.
  10. Apply 1-2 coats of SC-31 The Blues to the brush handle using CB-404 Pointed Round. Shade the lower half of the handle with SC-29 Blue Grass. The bunny’s eyes are painted with The Blues and shaded lightly with Blue Grass as well. The pupil of the eye is SC-15 Tuxedo. Apply one coat of SC-60 to the brush and shade the lower half with SC-41 Brown Cow. Apply 1-2 coats of SC-51 Poo Bear to the bristles of the brush excluding the “paint” portion on the bristles.   Apply thinned SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the “paint” portion on the bristles.
  11. To the left egg, apply SC-51 Poo Bear to the crosshatch portion of the pattern using CB-110 Liner.   Use the end of the brush to apply dots with SC-75 Orange-A-Peel between the hatches. The middle egg has SC-11 Blue Yonder painted on the lines using CB-110 Liner and dots of SC-5 Tiger Tail.  The right egg has a thin coat of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the two bands using CB-404 Pointed Round.
  12. Stir and mix each one of the Jungle Gem glazes, CG-966 Tiger Lily, CG-965 Mocha Marble and CG-968 Peppermint Twist. Pour out some of each onto a tile or pallet. Apply 2 coats of each color with crystals to the respected eggs using CB-406 Pointed Round.  Do not over apply excess crystals. Monitor the placement of the crystals so they won’t flow down onto the pattern during firing.  After the glazes have dried, you can remove some of the crystals as well.
  13. Shade over the eggs edges with a mixture of SC-41 Brown Cow and SC-15 Tuxedo to give contour to the eggs using CB-406 Pointed Round.

You can add some outline detail to the eggs and grass, but do it sparingly for added reinforcement to the design. Keep any additional lines small and fine in width. Let Dry.
  16. Apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing over the entire outside of the vase excluding the egg areas where the crystal glazes were applied with CB-604 Soft Fan.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Use the Soft Fan to apply one coat of FN0-001 White to the front of the clipboard.
  3. Pour SC-1 Pink-A-Boo into a small cup and add SC-16 Cotton Tail (about half as much as the Pink-A-Boo) to lighten the color. Add water to thin to the consistency of a light cream. Thinning to much will cause to color to move too much, not enough water will cause the paint to move slowly.
  4. Squirt SC-16 Cotton Tail into the second cup, thin with water as noted in step #3.
  5. Pour the pink mix over the clipboard in uneven bands, fill in between the bands with the thinned Cotton Tail. There should be space in between the bands of color.
  6. Move the clipboard slowly in different directions to marbleize. Stop before it is over mixed. Use your fingers to splatter Cotton Tail into the pink areas, and pink into the Cotton Tail area. Lay flat to dry.
  7. Outline the clip on the board with a pencil, this will help place the flower and the words. Mark where the clip will sit on the board then remove the glaze in this area. This will help the epoxy stick better after firing.
  8. On a plate, mix green food coloring with S-2101 Clear to tint. Sprinkle AC-310 Silkscreen Medium on to the clear and mix with a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter. Place the hydrangea from DSS-0149 FLowers 3 XL onto the clipboard with the shiny side down. Rub the thickened clear over the screen. This is for color placement only. Gently clean the screen.
  9. Use the Script Liner to apply two coats of SC-77 Glow Worm to the slightly past centers of the flowers.
  10. Fill in the rest of the flower with two coats of  SC-17 Cheeky Pinky adding in SC-1 Pink-A-Boo sporadically.
  11. Use the Script Liner to apply two coats of SC-26 Green Thumb to the leaves with the lighter areas being painted with SC-77 Glow Worm. Let dry.
  12. Thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter. Place the hydrangea screen directly on top of the previous screen and rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen.
  13. Pencil on the words Mom’s Notes or whatever you desire. Use the Liner to paint the words with SC-15 Tuxedo. SC-15 Tuxedo can also be used. Alternatively, you may use SG-401 Designer Liner to go over the penciled words.
  14. Tape the area at the where the clip will go then dip the piece into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze. Remove the tape.

3211 Stick Figures Wine Tumbler stick-figures-wine-tumbler https://www.maycocolors.com/projects/stick-figures-wine-tumbler/ https://www.maycocolors.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/MB1455_stick-figures-wine-tumbler_w_web.jpg Marcia Roullard
  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Place some FN-006 Blue into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 4 parts glaze to 1 part water). It should be the consistency of coffee cream. Pour this mixture into the tumbler and roll around to coat completely. Drain out the excess glaze until it stops dripping. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge.
  3. Use the colors noted above to stamp the Stick Figure stamp. Use the sponge-on-a-stick to dab color onto one image at a time and randomly apply to the wine tumbler.
  4. Use the word Dad from DSS-0130 Graceful Script with SC-15 Tuxedo. Use the following directions to screen over the Stick Figures on the wine tumbler.
  5. Place some color 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 too thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium; if it is too thick add more Stroke & Coat. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick of a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give blank areas in your screen.
  6. Position the screen shiny side down 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.
  7. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze or use a Soft Fan to apply two coats of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze to the outside of the tumbler.
  8. Fire to cone 05/06.

  4. Use the Script Liner to apply three coats of SC-60 Silver Lining to the grill and bumper. Let dry. Thin SC-15 Tuxedo to the consistency of water and brush over the grill and bumper to an antique. R back some of the black with the side of the brush to expose the Silver Lining on the high areas of the grill and bumper.
  5. Use the Script Liner to apply SC-15 Tuxedo around the edges of the windows. Add SC-60 Silver Lining to the brush to streak the centers of the windows to make the glass look transparent. Apply two coats. Use the same brush to apply two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the tires.
  6. Use the Liner with thinned SC-15 Tuxedo to outline the lines on the truck.
  7. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze or use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze to the truck.

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Pour the background colors on a palette: SC-45 My Blue Heaven and SC-11 Blue Yonder and a smaller amount of SC-9 Jaded onto one plate. Pour SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-24 Dandelion, SC-55 Yell About It and a smaller amount of SC-97 Cant-elope onto another plate.
  3. With the credit card pick up two of the blue colors on the card, then drag the card at a slight angle down the canvas. The colors will blend as you drag. Add another color to the card and repeat to about 2/3 down the canvas at the top and one third towards the bottom (refer to photo). Try to keep SC-45 My Blue Heaven in all the drags with color as the background will get too saturated with color. If needed, SC-16 Cotton Tail can also be added to lighten the color. Finish the sides of the canvas to match the top.
  4. Add SC-24 Dandelion and SC-45 My Blue Heaven to the card to overlap the transition of color to yellow and drag with the card onto the canvas. Repeat with the yellow colors on the card, using less of SC-97 Cant-elope in the drags.
  5. Repeat the background color drags a second time.
  6. When dry, place SL-448 Doily Stencil at the top right on the canvas, use the 2″ foam roller to gently roll on SC-11 Blue Yonder over the stencil. Repeat with the stencil and color at the bottom right, using approximately half the stencil. Repeat the process at the top center and to fill in space at right side of the canvas. Do not clean the roller.
  7. Use AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper to trace the pattern onto the canvas.
  8. Use the CB-106 #6 Script Liner to apply two coats of SC-11 Blue Yonder to the bird’s wing. When dry, use the sponge to apply SC-75 Orange-A-Peel onto a lace doily then use as a stamp on the bird’s wing.
  9. Using the Script Liner, apply SC-55 Yella Bout It to the birds body. Use the same brush to apply SC-6 Sunkissed and SC-24 Dandelion to build up the color. Add SC-16 Cotton Tail around the lower eye to lighten. Float SC-25 Crackerjack Brown onto the lower breast to shadow, float a narrow shade of SC-48 Camel Back to the lower breast.
  10. Use the CB-110 #10/0 Liner to apply SC-11 Blue Yonder, SC-97 Cant-elope with lines of SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to the tail feathers. The bird’s eye is SC-75 Orange-A-Peel, the pupil and outline are SC-15 Tuxedo. The beak is SC-48 Camel Back with some SC-75 Orange-A-Peel.
  11. Use the same brush to apply one coat of SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to outline the head and breast.
  12. Branches are a combination of SC-25 Crackerjack Brown, SC-48 Camel Back and SC-34 Down To Earth. Use SC-34 Down To Earth for the bird’s legs. Use the Liner to apply two coats of each color as noted.
  13. Tape the wing cut out back on the pattern and cut out the body of the bird. Place the pattern back onto the canvas and use the 2″ foam roller to roll SC-25 Crackerjack Brown over the ST-127 Crackle Stamp to the body of the bird.
  14. Cut out the pattern of the bird’s wing and place on the canvas. Place the SL-437 Groovy Stencil over the wing at an angle and use the 2″ Foam Roller to gently roll SC-15 Tuxedo over the stencil to pattern the wing.
  15. Tint S-2101 Clear with food coloring with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium mix using a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter, screen the leaves in position on the canvas.
  16. Use the Script Liner to apply two coats of SC-11 Blue Yonder to one half of each leaf and two coats of SC-27 Sour Apple to the other half.
  17. Use the Liner to outline the bird and the branches with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  18. Dip into NT-CLR or apply one coat of S-2101 Clear.
  19. Fire to cone 06/05.

Hand-building

  1. Roll out a slab that is about 1/8” thick and measures at least 13”x4”.
  2. These measurements are for creating a cylinder around a stoneware glaze jar, you can always use a wire or piece of string to measure the circumference of the cylinder that you are using for a mold.
  3. Compress slab with rib.
  4. Cover bottle with one layer of newsprint, flooding along the bottom of the bottle.
  5. Roll slab around wrapped jar until the sides are fully covered by clay.
  6. Cut slab a pencil thickness past the point where the end of the slab meets the clay to allow room for clay to overlap.
  7. Smoosh clay with your fingers pulling clay over the seam until smooth, use credit card or rib to even out clay.
  8. Roll out another 1/8” thick slab and compress.
  9. Trace bottom of the cylinder on the slab leaving the same amount of space for overlap.
  10. Cut circle and attach to clay cylinder by pulling and smooshing the clay up the sides of the form.
  11. Smooth out sides of your piece with a rib by compressing the sides from the bottom up.
  12. Be sure to keep the bottle flat on the table when doing this.
  13. Apply stamp to outside of the cylinder by placing in desired spot(s) around on piece and gently applying pressure.
  14. You can use your rib again to evenly apply pressure by smoothing over the back of the stamp mat always pulling the rib up towards you from the base.
  15. To create a clean foot, hold the jar with two hands and rock it forward onto its bottom edge and proceed to roll all the way around the bottom rim.
  16. When ready, remove the jar by pulling up and twisting, then pull paper out.
  17. Roll coils to attach to strengthen the seams on the inside and smooth out with fingers.
  18. To attach handle cut a strip of clay out of a slab that is about 1” wide.
  19. Smooth edges and pinch to widen the top of the handle to create a wider surface to attach.
  20. Option to slump handle over rolling pin or similar form to help it maintain its shape while waiting to be attached.
  21. Attach top of handle first by slipping and scoring the wide side and attach it about 1” below the rim, holding the end of the handle up towards you.
  22. Curve the rest of the handle down to attach just above the foot of the mug, creating an arch similar to the shape of an ear.
  23. Cut off any access clay and attach by slipping and scoring.
  24. Allow handle to set up a bit.
  25. If you are having a hard time getting it to hold its arch, flip mug over and let the handle hang over the edge to set up.
  26. Smooth out any cracks or imperfections with finger and/or sponge.
  27. Allow to dry fully and bisque fire to Cone 04.

Glazing

  1. From top left: SW-179 Muddy Waters over SW-167 Raspberry Mist; SW-179 Muddy Waters over SW-131 Birch; SW-179 Muddy Waters over SW-165 Lavender Mist; SW-179 Muddy Waters over SW-121 Smoke.
  2.   Wipe off bisque with a damp sponge to remove any dust.
  3. Using a soft fan brush, apply 2 coats of combo color option to the inside and outside of the mug, leaving the bottom unglazed.
  4. Be sure that the first coat is fully dry before applying the second coat.
  5. Once glaze is dry apply first coat of Muddy Waters (SW-179) the inside and the top two thirds of the outside of the mug and handle.
  6. This will allow space for the glaze to run without allowing it to run off the bottom of the mug.
  7. Apply your second coat of Muddy Waters to the inside and outside of the mug, stopping about a half inch above where you did on the last coat.
  8. Wipe any glaze from the bottom of the mug.

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.
