Crystal Mushrooms

Designer: Marcia Roullard



1.  Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2.  Place the pattern on top of the AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper and trace the design onto the bisque.

3.  Using the CB-106 #6 Script Liner apply two coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the entire mushroom.

4.  With the pencil lightly sketch the mushroom design onto the piece.

5.  Using the Script Liner, apply three coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the mushroom caps.

6.  Using the same brush, apply two coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail on the spots of the mushroom caps.

7.  When dry, outline the mushrooms with SC-15 Tuxedo.

8. Use a stylus or the end of a paintbrush to dot the shadow areas with SC-5 Tiger Tail.

8.  Using the CB-604 #4 Fan Brush and the Script Liner, for smaller areas, apply two coats of S-2715 Spotted Kiwi to the background.

9.  While the S-2715 Spotted Kiwi is still wet, dab or plop on CG-753 Sassy Orange over the S-2715 Spotted Kiwi. This is a random application, but do leave a little bit of the S-2715 Spotted Kiwi showing.

10. Fire to cone 06.
