Garden Gnome Plate

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Brush on two coats of FN-001 White with RB-144 Soft Fan to the front of the plate.
  3. Trace on the pattern of the gnome, mushroom and clouds to the plate use Clay Carbon Paper. Cut out the shape of the gnome, mushrooms and clouds. Place the cut out patterns onto the traced outline, pull back the paper to brush water under the pattern so that the paper will stick to the glaze.
  4. Brush two coats of SC-91 Seabreeze around the gnome brush over the paper edges, add SC-11 Blue Yonder to brush onto the remainder of the plate, stopping just past the grass edges. Use the RB-144 Soft Fan to apply the two coats, remove the paper.
  5. Brush two coats of SC-20 Cashew Later to the nose and face, add SC-2 Melon-Choly to redden the nose and cheeks, use RB-106 Script Liner.
  6. Brush the boots and patches in the hat with 2-3 coats of SC-6 Sunkissed, shade with SC-97 Cant-elope.
  7. Hat brush 2-3 coats of SP-275 Speckled Orange A Peel with RB-106 Script Liner jacket is SC-92 Cafe’ Ole’, pants are SC-34 Down to Earth, gloves are SC-98 Slime-Time. 2-3 coats.
  8. Punch out small dots for the mushroom tops, wet the glaze then stick on the paper dots, brush SC-74 Hot Tamale over the mushrooms tops 3 coats. Remove the paper. Brush 3 coats of SC-81 Cinnamon Stix to the underside of the mushroom caps.
  9. Brush the grass with SC-26 Green Thumb and SC-8 Just Froggy in the direction of the grass shapes 2 coats. Let dry.
  10. Thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter, hold the grass screen shiny side down on the green grass area, I only used sections of the grass screen, no need to clean between screening if you continue to repeat the screen immediately, rub your finger with the thickened Tuxedo over the screen and repeat in a couple of rows to fill in the grass. Screen a few ladybugs over the grass with the image from DSS-0113 Bugs. Paint the backs with two coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale around the spots.
  11. Use RB-110 Liner to outline the gnome, detail the mustache and beard, the mushrooms and blades of grass as shown, use SC-15 Tuxedo.
  12. Dip in clear or brush two coats of clear to the back and one coat to the front use S-2101 Clear with the RB-144 Soft Fan.
  13. Fire to cone 05/06.
