Fish Fry

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace on the fish design.
  3. Outline one fish in the SG-405 Green Designer Liner and one in SG-403 Red Designer Liner, the v detail in the scales is SG-401 Black Designer Liner.
  4. Place some SG-405 Green Designer Liner on a palette. Thin the SG-405 Green Designer Liner and using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner to shade around the head and scales of the fish, use SC-24 Dandelion in the same way to color some fins and scales.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan and a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 thinned coats of SC-11 Blue Yonder to the background of the tray.
  6. With the 1” and ¾” Round Paper Punches, punch out about 15 of each size from plain paper. Wet the paper punches and scatter them around the tray. Press with paper towel so they stick.
  7. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan and a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-12 Moody Blue to the background, taking care to brush around the paper dots in a circular stroke, as brush strokes will show.
  8. Remove the paper dots before the color dries.
  9. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-11 Moody Blue to the back of the tray. Allow to dry.
  10. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing glaze to the top of the plate. Allow to dry.
  11. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
