Designer: Wendy Ives



  1. Begin with soft fired stoneware bisque.  
  2. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.  
  3. Use the Round Brush to apply ¼” of AC-302 Wax Resist around the outside bottom of the dish. Follow the instructions on the bottle for conditioning the brush prior to use. Wash brush immediately after use. 
  4. On the inside, use another Round Brush to apply SW-401 Light Flux in a pattern of 1” thick crisscrosses. Apply 2 coats.   
  5. Using the Round Brush to apply 2 coats of SC-76 Cara-Bein Blue, SC-31 The Blues, and SC-26 Green Thumb in the blank space between the Light Flux. Alternate the colors and overlap the Light Flux slightly. It is helpful to label the spaces prior to painting to ensure variety.
