Colorful Silhouette Birds

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Take AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper and lay it over one side of the large bird. Take the corresponding pattern and place on top. Trace over the pattern with the pencil. Repeat for all five sides of the bird (left side, right side, front, top, and back). Repeat for the small bird.
  3. Using the Script Liner with SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-11 Blue Yonder, SC-12 Moody Blue, SC-27 Sour Apple, SC-74 Hot Tamale and SC-74 Orange-A-Peel, apply 2 coats to the corresponding sections on each bird. Refer to the pattern.
  4. Squeeze out around 1 tsp of SC-12 Moody Blue onto the palette. Use the pencil eraser as a stamp to make dots around the neck and in the tear drops on the small bird. Make dots on the tips of the flower petals on the large bird.
  5. Squeeze out around 1 tsp of SC-75 Orange-A-Peel onto the palette. Use the pencil eraser as a stamp to make dots around the neck of the large bird.
  6. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, outline the designs. Add decorative lines.
  7. Using the Soft Fan with SG-702 Celebration, apply 2 coats to each bird. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
