Colorful App Plates

Designer: Elizabeth Carey


  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. There are 2 ways to transfer the pattern to the plate:
  3. Place the tissue paper over the pattern. Trace with the pencil. Cut out the pattern you traced on the tissue paper. Only cut along the dotted lines. Place the tissue paper pattern over the plate. Trace the design with the permanent marker.
    1. Cut out the shapes in the original pattern. Then place them on the plate and trace around them with the pencil.
    2. Squeeze out around 1 TBS of the following glazes onto the palette: SC-11 Blue Yonder, SC-12 Moody Blue, SC-24 Dandelion, and SC-74 Hot Tamale.
  4. To make the green glaze, squeeze out 2 parts SC-24 Dandelion and 1 part SC-11 Blue Yonder. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Using the Script Liner with the glazes from Step #3 & #4, apply 2 coats to each section on the plate. Refer to the patterns for color placement. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  6. Use the pencil eraser to make decorative dots on your pattern. You can use any of the colors on your palette.
  7. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, outline your pattern. Add decorative lines. Use the Soft Fan to apply 2 coats to the back of the plate. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Using the Soft Fan with SG-702 Celebration, apply 2 coats to the front of the plate. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  9. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
