3″ Jellyfish Ornament

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. On the DSS-0157 Under the Sea screen, locate the jellyfish. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with excess screen around the edges.
  3. Squeeze about two tablespoons of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the plate. 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 jellyfish in the center of the ornament. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed Silkscreen Medium, and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward. Slowly pull up the screen to avoid smearing.
  5. Using the Script Liner and Detail Liner with SC-78 Lime Light, apply two coats to the body of the jellyfish.
  6. Using the Script Liner and Detail Liner with SC-45 My Blue Heaven, apply two coats to the background of the ornaments. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Script Liner and with SC-74 Hot Tamale, apply two coats to the sides and back of the ornament. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Use SG-401 Black to make the string for the lights.
  9. Use SG-403 Red, SG-404 Blue and SG-407 Yellow to make the lights.
  10. Use the Detail Liner with SG-302 Snowfall to make dots in the background.
  11. Using the Soft Fan, apply one coat of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze or dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze.
  12. Fire to cone 06.
