Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper over the front of the plate. Trace the pattern using the pencil.
  3. Using the Script Liner with CN201 Light Grey, CN501 Neon Yellow, CN502 Neon Blue, CN504 Neon Orange, CN505 Neon Green and CN507 Neon Red, apply 2 coats to the corresponding sections of the pattern. Glaze the outside of the hammock with only CN501 Neon Yellow. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  4. Using MC-001 6mm Low Track Masking Tape and MC-002 12mm Low Track Masking Tape, make vertical lines on the outside of the hammock. Using the Script Liner with CN502 Neon Blue, CN504 Neon Orange, CN505 Neon Green and CN507 Neon Red apply 1 coat to each stripe. Remove tape before glaze dries.
  5. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, outline each section of the pattern and add decorative lines and dots. Use the Script Liner to fill in the inside of the hammock.
  6. Using the Soft Fan with SC-15 Tuxedo, apply 2 coats to the back of the plate. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Soft Fan with SG-702 Speckta-Clear Celebration, apply 2 coats to the front of the plate. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
