Cable Knit Snowman Clipboard

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Take the MC-002 12mm Low Track Masking Tape and cover the top of the Clipboard, where the clip will be glued.
  3. Squeeze around a tablespoon of SC-35 Gray Hare onto the plate. Take the MT-010 Cable Knit Mat and place it design-side up. Take the sponge on a stick and gently dab it into the glaze. Blot off any excess onto the bare portion of the place, then sponge the mat. Take the mat and gently press onto the Clipboard. Slowly pull the mat off to avoid smearing. Allow glaze to dry completely.
  4. On the DSS-0106 Winter/Holiday screen, locate the snowman. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with excess screen around the edges.
  5. 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.
  6. Place the snowman in the lower right corner of the Clipboard. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed Silkscreen Medium, and gently rub in circles staring in the center and working outward. Slowly pull up the screen to avoid smearing.
  7. Using the Scrip Liner and SC-16 Cotton Tail, apply two coats to the body of the snowman. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Using the Detail Liner and SC- 31 The Blues, apply two coats to every other stripe in the scarf. Using the same brush with SC-55 Yella Bout It, apply two coats to the other stripes in the scarf. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  9. Using the Detail Liner and SC- 75 Orange-A-Peel, apply two coats to the nose of the snowman. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  10. Using the Detail Liner and SC-26 Green Thumb, apply two coats to the holly on the snowman’s hat. Using the same brush with SC-74 Hot Tamale, apply two coats to the berries in the holly. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  11. Using the snowflake punch, make three snowflake punches in the paper. You will be using the negatives as stencils. You can discard the actual snowflakes. Cut them apart with the scissors. Use some water to dampen each stencil. Place the snowflakes in the background of the snowman. Press them down and make sure the edges are secure.
  12. Using the Soft Fan and SC-12 Moody Blue, apply one thick coat of glaze over the stencil. Before the glaze dries, remove the stencil.
  13. Using the Script Liner and SG-701 Star Dust, apply one coat to each snowflake.
  14. Using the Soft Fan, apply one coat of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze or dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze.
  15. Pull off the 12mm tape at the top of the Clipboard.
  16. Fire to cone 06.
  17. After the Clipboard has cooled, use epoxy to glue on the clip following the directions or refer to ‘Clipboard – Attaching the clip’ video on the Mayco YouTube channel
