Gingerbread House Plate

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe the bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-023 Cinnamon to the front of the plate.
  3. Once the final coat is dry, use AC-230 Transfer Paper to transfer the pattern onto the plate.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-14 Java Bean to the door.
  5. Apply 3 coats of SC-6 Sunkissed to the windows and door handle.
  6. Using an AC-212 Sponge on a Stick, apply the gumdrops above the door making one of each of the following colors: SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-8 Just Froggy, SC74 Hot Tamale, SC-75 Orange A Peel, SC-76 Cara-bein Blue. Let each coat dry and reapply for 3 coats.
  7. Using both the CB-106 #6 Script Liner and the CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the white details of the house.
  8. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner apply a thinned outline of SC-15 Tuxedo around the door and windows and their details.
  9. Using the back end of a brush, apply the gumdrop colors around the windows. There should be a little bubble of the color left. Be sure to space them out enough so they don’t run together.
  10. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-010 Tree Green to the back of the plate.
  11. Let dry completely.
  12. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
