Funky Elements Mushroom

Designer: Elizabeth Carey


  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the Soft Fan with FN-009 Black, apply 2 coats to the front and sides of the tile. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  3. As soon as glaze is dry to the touch, place the mushroom pattern on the front of the tile. Trace over the pattern with the pencil. You should be able to see a faint line in the glaze. Don’t press down so hard that you start to see bisque. Remove the pattern.
  4. Using the Detail Liner with AC-302 Wax Resist, trace over the pattern on the front of the tile.
  5. Using the Script Liner with EL-128 Wheat, apply 1 coat to the bottom of the mushroom head and stem.
  6. Using the Script Liner with EL-127 Rose Granite, apply 1 coat to the top of the mushroom head.
  7. Using the Script Liner with EL-130 Sea Green, apply 1 coat to the background.
  8. Repeat Steps 5-7.
  9. Repeat Steps 5-7, but only apply the glaze to the center portion of each section (the inner area ¼” from the edge of each section). It does not have to be exact, just do not glaze right next to the wax line.
  10. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
