Flower Breathing Dragon

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 stoneware bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Mix together SW-301 Iron Wash and AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife. Combine until it is the consistency of peanut butter. Adjust ratios as necessary.
  3. Place the fire breathing dragon from DSS-115 Dragons onto the plate, shiny side down. Use your finger to work the thickened wash through the screen. Remove the screen immediately and rinse or place in water to preserve the screen.
  4. Use the same directions from #3 to screen the flowers from DSS-0149 Flowers XL three times.
    Allow to dry, then carefully apply1 coat of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral.
  5. Apply 1 thin coat of SW-301 Iron Wash to the rim and back of the plate.
  6. Apply 3 coats of SW-124 Matte Maycoshino to the entire plate, avoiding the foot. This glaze is very application dependent, so be sure to apply in a cross hatching patter to promote more consistent variation with the fired results.
  7. Use a damp sponge to remove any glaze that may have gotten on the foot.
  8. Fire to shelf cone 5/6 *Sample was fired to cone 6*
