Duncan Tropical Leaf Silkscreen Plate

Designer: Tim McPherson



  1. Create a 6” Square in the center of the plate.
  2. Tape off the inside area of the square,
  3. Mix the SG-401 Black Designer Liner with a small amount of Silkscreen Medium until it is the constancy of thin peanut butter.
  4. Using a variety of the leaves, hold the silkscreen shinny side down and rub the designer liner mixture over the silkscreen with your finger, then remove the screen. Continue until the background is complete.
  5. Remove the tape, and add a larger leaf to the center square.
  6. Using the Round, apply 1 slightly thinned coat of the EZ stroke colors as desired, using the Poppy Orange and Passion Red for accenting the tips of the leaf. Most of the leaves use all 3 greens, from lighter in the center to darker to the outside edges.
  7. Using the Designer Liner and metal tip, add the border to the square.
  8. Using the Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of Transparent Matte to the entire plate. Be careful when applying over the silkscreen areas, as excessive brushing can cause the designer liner to soften and smear.
  9. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
