Duck-Zilla Planter

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. In wet greenware, cut out the back of the duck, use the cut out piece of clay to slip attach to the inside of the duck to cover up the cast hole. Fire to cone 04.
  2. Thin slightly FN-009 Black, pour to the inside, turn to coat, drain excess glaze.
  3. Brush on three coats of FN-001 White to the outside of the duck planter with CB-604 Soft Fan.
  4.  For the background, use a combination of a paper doily or scrapbook die cut paper, I used a floral pattern, sponge sections of the paper with Stroke and Coat colors such as, SC-1 Pink A Boo, SC-24 Dandelion, SC-65 Peri-Twinkle, and SC-93 Honeydew List, sponge in separate sections, then press to the duck. Makes an interesting background.
  5. Trace or draw on the simple flowers scattered around the duck’s body. Puddle coat with CB-106 Script Liner CG-989 Fruit Punch to the red flowers, CG-753 Sassy Orange to the yellow flowers, and CG-722 Seawind to the speckled blue flowers. Leave spaces for the centers or dot details for Stroke and Coat colors. A puddle coat is a heavy dropped coat of glaze and crystals from the bottom of the jar. If coats are applied thin, 2 coats are needed.
  6. Thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter, use the leaves shown from DSS-0111 Botanical-leaves with the shiny side down, rub the thickened Tuxedo with your finger over the screen to make the image, place as shown.
  7. Use CB-110 Liner to outline and detail the centers of the flowers.
  8. Brush the lock of hair with one coat of SC-24 Dandelion, and the tongue with SC-1 Pink A Boo. Eyes are SC-31 The Blues, pupil and outlines with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  9. Thin SC-15 Tuxedo to faintly outline the wings and duck’s bill.
  10. Fire to cone 05/06.
