Color Block Mod Plate

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Tape a straight line 5” from the right side and 4” from the left side. Tape with 1” painters tape on the left side.
  3. Use the Soft Fan to apply 4 coats of FN-301 Marshmallow White to the right side and the back of the tray.
  4. Use the same brush to apply 4 coats of FN-302 Ivory Cream to the left side of the tray. Remove the tape.
  5. Tape over the edge of the Ivory Cream and the Marshmallow White. Apply 4 coats of FN-304 Black Velvet to the remainder of the tray. Remove the tape.
  6. Tape off an approx. width of ½” x 5” long section that crosses over the cream and black matte as shown. Brush the taped of section with three coats of SC-99 Char-ming.
  7. Cut out the shapes to create a pattern. Punch out a 1” circle, a 1 ½” circle shape and a triangle punch. Use the negative space from these punches.
  8. Brush water over the section of the plate and place the paper patterns onto the piece.
  9. Apply three coats of SP-209 Speckled Jaded and SP-288 Speckled Tu Tu Tango, to the circular pattern areas. Apply SC-6 Sunkissed to the paper punched circles and triangles. Apply SC-98 Slime Time to the elongated circle section. Remove the paper patterns after the third coat.
  10. Fire to cone 05/06.
  11. TIP: to make the project faster because of drying time, use cut paper instead of the tape.
