Elements Continuous Fronds Platter

Designer: Elizabeth Carey


  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Use the pencil to draw a wavy line towards the end of the platter. This will be the line between the screened section and the colored section.
  3. Squeeze out around 2 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo 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.
  4. Place the DSS-0163 Continuous Fronds screen over the platter, shiny side down. While holding the screen firmly in the center, take the squeegee and scoop out around 1 TSP of premixed silkscreen medium. Firmly run the squeegee across the center of the plate spreading the medium. Silkscreen up to the pencil line. Repeat with more medium until the center is covered. Then repeat going up from the center to the outside of the platter.
  5. Using the Soft Fan with NT-BR Clear One Brushing, apply 2 coats to the silkscreened area only. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  6. Using the Soft Fan with FN-009 Black, apply 2 coats to the small area that is not silkscreened.  Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Script Liner with EL-148 Smoked Lilac, apply 2 coats over the smaller half of the platter glazed in Step #6. Apply a 3rd coat just to the center of the section.
  8. Using the Soft Fan brush apply three coats of FN-009 Black to the back of the plate and rim.
  9. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
