Carrot Mug with Designer Liner

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with soft fired stoneware bisque. 
  2. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 
  3. Use a pencil to divide the mug and draw the carrot shapes.  
  4. Use a script liner to apply 3 coats of UG-85 Orange to fill in the carrots. 
  5. Use a script liner to apply 3 coats of UG-31 Chocolate to the dirt. *Do not layer the orange over the brown or you will get blistering. Chocolate fluxes at cone 6 so applying a not fluxing UG over it can create surface issues.*   
  6. Use a fan brush to apply 3 coats of UG-82 Tucson Turquoise to create the sky. 
  7. Fire to cone 04 to set UG. *This step is not 100% necessary, but is helpful when applying the Designer Liner.* 
  8. Use the SG-408 Orange to add details to the carrots, SG-405 Green to create the leaves, and SG-401 to create the outline. 
  9. Use a fan brush to apply 3 coats of SW-155 Winter Wood to the inside of the tumbler.  
  10. Use a clean sponge to wipe the excess glaze off of the foot. 
  11. Fire to cone 5/6. (Sample was fired to cone 6)
