Blue and White Striped Vase

Designer: William Pulse



  1. Remove the seams and clean up the throat of the vase with the Clean-up Tool. Sand any of the remaining imperfections with the Green Grit Cloth. Use a moistened Synthetic Sponge to remove any dust from the ware. Check the inside for any debris.
  2. Using CB-604 Soft Fan apply 3 even and smooth coats of UG-51 China White to the outside of the vase. Let dry.
  3. Using the pencil, mark off a line about 1 ½” from the top edge. Make sure the line is horizontal to the top edge and is even around the neck of the vase.
  4. Apply 3 coats of UG-1 Kings Blue to the marked band at the top of the vase and down into the throat of the vase. Apply the color down into the vase to where the neck narrows. Let dry.
  5. Use a pencil and ruler to draw some vertical lines on the white portion of the vase. The lines are about ¼” apart at the neck of the vase. Keep the lines as vertically straight as possible allowing for the curvature of the vase. Remember that you don’t have to paint in any line, they are there for guidance.
  6. Shake and stir SG-404 Blue. Replace the top and metal tip. Paint in the vertical lines on the vase as evenly spaced as possible.
  7. Fire to Shelf Cone 04.
  8. Thin some S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing in a plastic cup to a melted ice cream consistency. Pour the thinned glaze into the vase. While working quickly, rotate the vase to coat the inside of the vase. Pour out the excess glaze and invert to dry. Wipe off any glaze from the outside of the vase.
  9. Apply 2-3 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing using CB-604 Soft Fan to the outside of the vase.
  10. Stilt and Fire the ware to Shelf Cone 05-06.
