2022 Celebration Wine Bucket

Designer: William Pulse



  1. Wipe down the bisque shape with a moistened synthetic sponge to remove any dust and debris.
  2. Cut out the pattern with scissors. Center the pattern onto the ware and place blue masking tape to secure the pattern to the ware. Use AC-230 Clay Carbon and a pencil to transfer the design onto the ware. 
  3. Make a small receptacle out of aluminum foil or use a small plastic cup. Place some AC-304 Wax Resist in it and add a couple of drops of food coloring to tint the wax. The food coloring will aid in seeing where you have applied the wax resist when painting.
  4. Condition CB-110 Liner with the liquid detergent. Apply 1 heave coat of the wax resist to the design. Only one coat is needed but it needs to be a heavy coat. Let dry.
  5. Apply 3-4 smooth even coats of FN-304 Black Velvet to the entire piece using CB-604 Soft Fan and CB-404 Pointed Round around the pattern. Try not to apply the glaze over the waxed areas. The wax should resist the glaze. If any glaze remains on the waxed areas, use as moistened brush to remove any glaze.
  6. Stilt and fire the piece to shelf cone 05-06.
  7. Place some SG-881 Glittering Silver onto some aluminum foil or plastic cup. Use CB-110 Liner to apply 1-2 coat(s) of color to the teardrop portions of the pattern for solid coverage.  
  8. Using CB-110 Liner to apply 1-2 coat(s) of SG-882 Glittering Gold to the star and numbers in the pattern for solid coverage.
  9. Let dry.
