Circle Flowers Plate

Designer: Tim McPherson



  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 #4 Soft Fan brush, apply 2 smooth coats of Foundation FN-001 White to the top of the plate.
  3. Punch out of paper the desired number of flowers you want using a 2″ paper punch and copier paper.
  4. Wet an area with water, and “glue” down the 2″ paper circle where desired. Continue until you have the desired number of flowers on your plate.
  5. Using the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan brush, apply 2 to 3 coats of Foundation FN-32 Canton Jade to the top of the plate.
  6. On a palette, with a palette knife, mix a small amount of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium into Foundation FN-231 Clearly Jade to the consistency of peanut butter. Screen the entire surface of the plate using the DSS-0103 Flourishes Silkscreen (shiny side down).
  7. Remove the paper circles.
  8. Using the CB-404 #4 Pointed Round brush, apply 2 coats of SC-97 Cant-elope to the orange flowers and 2 coats of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral to the red flowers.
  9. Side load the Pointed Round brush with SC-81 Cinnamon Stix and add ruffle type of strokes into the SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral flowers.
  10. Side load the Pointed Round brush with SC-88 Tu Tu Tango and add a ruffle type of strokes to the Stroke and Coat SC-97 Cant-elope flowers.
  11. Using the Pointed Round brush, load with SC-7 Leapin Lizard and add leaves where desired.
  12. Reload the Pointed Round brush with SC-7 Leapin Lizard and side load with SC-52 Toad-ilky Green and apply to the leaves, keeping the darker color to the outside edge.
