Galaxy Gloss Mug

Designer: Bre Kathman



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Stoneware bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Lay the water based marker on the table, press the mug up against the marker and rotate all the way around. This applies a line at the bottom of the mug which is considered the “no paint” line. Do not apply glaze past this point.
  3. Using the soft fan brush apply two coats of SW-156 Galaxy to the outside of the mug. Avoid the handle and the “no paint” line.
  4. Allow the glaze to dry between coats. Dry is considered the shine is off of the glaze.
  5. Using the soft fan brush apply one coat of SW-501 White Gloss to the entire mug. That is over the SW-156 Galaxy, the handle and inside of the Mug. Do not paint past the “no paint” line.
  6. Use the sponge and wipe off any glaze that is below the no paint line or the bottom of the mug.
  7. Dry foot on a properly kiln washed shelf and fire to cone 6.
