Birch & Fool’s Gold Tumblers

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Apply 2 coats of SW-131 Birch to the outside of the Tumbler. Leave about 1/4″ from the top.
  2. Apply wax resist in design of your choice over the Birch. In the featured photos, on was applied in vertical stripes and the other was applied in a lattice design.
  3. Apply 2 coats of SW-178 Fool’s Gold to the entire Tumbler, avoiding the bottom. If the wax design that you applied is very detailed we would recommend only applying 1 coats where the combo is.
  4. Use a clean sponge to wipe away any glaze that may have gotten on the bottom of the tumbler.
  5. Let dry completely.
  6. Fire to shelf cone 5/6.
