Fork Wreath

Designer: Marcia Roullard


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the RB-144 #4 Soft Fan apply 3 coats of SP-216 Speckled Cotton Tail to the front of the plate only. Allow for the shine to fade before transferring the pattern.
  3. Transfer the pattern onto the plate using the AC-230 Clay Carbon Transfer paper. The greenery is for placement more than exact detail.
  4. On a palette pour the size of a silver dollar of the following colors:  SC-08 Just Froggy and SC-27 Sour Apple.
  5. You will now paint the greenery with a fork.  Dip the fork into SC-27 Sour Apple.   Press and drag the color from inside of the wreath to the outside going all the way around the wreath.
  6. Repeat the process with SC-8 Just Froggy to fill in the branches of the wreath and repeat the process.  Overlap the SC-27 Sour Apple, but do not cover entirely.
  7. Sgraffito in lines on the wreath with a bamboo skewer to mimic the needles.  Periodically, cross over the lines for visual interest.
  8. Bow:  Use the RB-106 #6 Script Liner and apply 2-3 coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the bow.  Use SC-74 Hot Tamale to darken the shadow areas on the bow.
  9. Use the RB-110 #10/0 Liner to outline the bow.
  10. Using the eraser end of a pencil, dip the eraser into the following colors and dot the color on the wreath to mimic bulbs.  SC-31 The Blues, SC-74 Hot Tamale, SC-97 Cant-elope.
  11. Use RB-144 #4 Soft Fan brush to apply three coats of FN-035 Deep Red on the back and rim of the plate.
  12. Stilt and fire to cone 05/06.
