Faceted Crackle Skull

Designer: Marcia Roullard



1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.

2. Use the Soft Fant to apply three coats of FN-037 Chartreuse to the inside of the skull, eye sockets, and mouth.

3. Outline the faceted shapes with SG-401 Black. Let dry.

4. Use the Soft Fan to apply three coats of CC-101 Clear Crackle to the outside of the skull.

6. Fire to cone 06.

7. Wait a day or so for the cracks to develop after firing. Slightly thin a black acrylic stain, brush onto the skull, then wipe clean to reveal the crackle finish.
