Dark Green Bowl with Fronds

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with soft fired stoneware bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Pour out around 2 TBS of SW-509 Dark Green Gloss onto the palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more silkscreen medium or glaze.
  3. Take DSS-0163 Continuous Fronds Screen and place it on top of the plate, shiny side down. Make sure it covers the rim of the bowl.
  4. While holding the screen firmly in place, scoop a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium onto the squeegee and pull across the rim of the bowl. Repeat until the entire rim of the bowl is screened.
  5. Using the Soft Fan with SW-004 Zinc-Free Clear, apply 3 coats over the screened area on the bowl. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  6. Using the Soft Fan with SW-509 Dark Green Gloss, apply 4 coats to the rest of the bowl. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Fire to cone 6.
