Colorful Ornaments Topper

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Pour CD023 Vintage Ornament Topper mold ¼” thick. Refer to casting instructions.
  2. Once it is firm enough to handle, use the sponge to smooth down casting lines.
  3. Fire to cone 04.
  4. Using the Script Liner and Detail Liner with SC-1 Pink-A-Boo, SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-27 Sour Apple, SC-60 Silver Lining, SC-73 Candy Apple Red and SC-76 Cara-Bein Blue, apply 3 coats to the ornaments as pictured. Glaze the silver sections with SC-60 Silver Lining. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  5. Using the Script Liner with SC-26 Green Thumb, apply 2 coats to the holly leaves. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  6. Using the Script Liner with SC-10 Teal Next Time, apply 2 coats to the pine leaves. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Dip the sponge in water. Squeeze out the excess water and wipe the leaves to remove the glaze on the high areas. This will create an antiqued look, leaving glaze in the details.
  8. Using the Detail Liner with SC-87 Ruby Slippers, apply 2 coats to the berries.
  9. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping.
  10. Fire to cone 06.

  13. Using the Oval Glaze Mop with the Mother of Pear Overglaze, apply a thin coat over the outside of the topper. Apply in small, circular motions for the most color.
