3″ Mistletoe 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-0156 Llama Drama screen, locate the leaves. 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 leaves on the left edge 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. Wash the screen with water and make sure it is dry. Flip it over to the other side and re-screen on the right side of the ornament.
  6. Using the pencil, draw an ornament hanging between the two sets of leaves.
  7. Using the Script Liner with SC-8 Just Froggy, apply two coats to the leaves. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Using the Script Liner with SC-74 Hot Tamale, apply two coats to the berries and the hanging ornament. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  9. Using the Detail Liner, Script Liner and Soft Fan with SC-78 Lime Light, apply two coats to the background, sides and back of the ornament. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  10. Using the Detail Liner with SG-302 Snowfall, make accent lines on the hanging ornament.
  11. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, outline the hanging ornament and add a string.
  12. Using the Soft Fan, apply one coat of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze or dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze.
  13. Fire to cone 06.
