Element Chubby Gourd

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Brush two coats of EL-204 Glowing Embers unevenly to the top three inches of the gourd with CB-604 Soft Fan, overlap EL-211 Volcanic Glow onto the Glowing Embers 1/2 inch, brush the remainder of the gourd. Make sure to mix the glaze to use plenty of crystals.
  3. Plop PC601 Clear Cascade with CB-604 #4 Soft Fan to the gourd, leaving space between plops. Stop two inches from the bottom as the color will move.
  4. Plop PC-602 White Cascade, overlapping onto the Clear Cascade, leave spaces between the plops, stop three inches from the bottom. These colors can be applied while the previous glazes are wet.
  5. Use CB-110 Liner to heavily vein SC-15 Tuxedo to the gourds.
  6. Brush EL-111 Ruby Creek to the stem, 3 coats.
  7. Fire to cone 06.
