Black Tie Duck Bank

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan apply 3-4 coats of FN-002 Yellow onto the ducks body, avoiding the eyes.
  3. Use the same brush to apply three coats of FN-052 Tangerine to the duck’s bill.
  4. With a pencil, lighty draw a neck tie shape onto the duck. Use the CB-106 Script Liner to apply 2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo, brushing in the direction of the tie sections. Leave a small space between the knot and the bow.
  5. Shade around the wings and the curl on the duck’s head. To do this, load the CB-106 Script Liner with FN-002 Yellow then tip the brush in FN-052 Tangerine. Hold the brush flat against the shape of the wing and pull the color to outline the wing for a soft shade.
  6. Remove excess glaze from the eyes, then use the CB-202 Detail to apply 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the eyes. Lighten SC-76 Cara-bein blue with SC-16 Cotton Tail and apply two coats to the iris. Use the CB-110 Liner to apply SC-15 Tuxedo to the pupil and create outlines.
  7. Stilt and fire to cone 05/06.
