Foundations under Elements Vases

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Pour around 1/4 cup of EL-118 Blue Grotto, EL-130 Sea Green and EL-149 Lavender Flower into each of the disposable cups. Thin with water until it is easily poured. Pour into each vase (1 at a time) and rotate until the inside is covered. Pour out the excess.
  3. Take the pencil and sketch the texture you would like on each vase. You can do dots, lines, scallops, or other patterns.
  4. Take FD-258 Pure White and apply over the “texture” you drew with the pencil. Allow it dry before moving onto the next step.
  5. Using the Soft Fan with EL-118 Blue Grotto, EL-130 Sea Green and EL-149 Lavender Flower, apply 3 coats to the outside of each vase. Make sure to use the same glaze on the outside as you applied to the inside.
  6. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
