Brown Owl Planter

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-029 Rich Chocolate into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water). It should be the consistency of a coffee cream. Pour this into the vase and roll around to completely coat the interior of the vase. Drain out the excess glaze and keep vase inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 thinned coats of SC-54 Vanilla Dip to the beast of the owl.
  4. Lighten SC-84 Dee John slightly with SC-54 Vanilla Dip.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 thinned coats of the mix on the head area of the owl, blending with more SC-54 Vanilla Dip where the color meets the breast.
  6. Using a CB-602 #2 Soft Fan apply, 3 coats of SC-41 Brown Cow to the wings.
  7. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the white part of the eyes.
  8. Cut out a circle approx the same diameter of the large eyes. Place over the eye as a splatter guard. Using an old tooth brush, spatter the eyes with thinned SC-29 Blue Grass and SC-34 Down to Earth. Remove the spatters from the iris.
  9. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 thinned coats of SC-51 Poo Bear to the iris of the eyes.
  10. When the glaze has dried to the touch, stamp the body area with ST-343 Deco Circles Stamp using SC-34 Down To Earth, stamp the breast with ST-340 Flower Branch Stamp, and the wing with ST-339 Star Swirls Stamp. Use the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick to apply the color.
  11. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, thin slightly SC-29 Blue Grass to stroke in the petals of the flowers on the breast, stroke in the leaves with SC-39 Army Surplus.
  12. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-15 tuxedo to the beak and feet, pupil
  13. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, out line the eye sections with SC-15 Tuxedo. Allow to dry.
