Cobblestone Cactus Vase

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Slightly thin FN-009 Black, pour to the inside, turn to coat, pour out the excess glaze, drain.
  3. Brush on two coats of FN-009 Black with RB-122 Soft Fan to the outside of the cactus, brush on a third coat, while the glaze is wet place pieces of skinny jute in the creases between the sections of cactus. Brush over the jute to cover with glaze. After it begins to dry, press areas of jute to remove the excess glaze and to promote drying.
  4. Brush the outside of the cactus with two coats of SG-202 White Cobblestone.
  5. Thin sc-8 Just Froggy and SC-98 Slime Time in separate containers, 1 TBS glaze to 1 ½ caps of water, fill the medium writer tip bottles with the colors, snip the plastic tip to make the opening larger. Squirt the colors over the cactus, let them run together where they meet. Not necessary to cover all the white cobblestone.
  6. Remove the jute when the gloss leaves the color.
  7. Use RB-110 Liner to brush in the space left from the jute one coat of SG-202 White Cobblestone, brush over the white with one coat of SC-73 Candy Apple Red.
  8. Fire to cone 05/06.
