Crystal Cactus

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Apply MC-002 12mm Low Track Masking Tape over the holes in the branches of the cactus. Leave the large center hole open.
  3. Pour around ½ cup of FN-003 Orange into the disposable cup. Thin with water until it is easily poured. Pour into the top of the cactus and rotate until the inside is covered. Pour out the excess. Remove the tape.
  4. Using the Soft Fan with CG-987 Tree Frog, apply 3 coats to the outside of the cactus.
  5. Fire to cone 06.
