Groovy Mushroom Layering Plate and Bowl

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with soft fired stoneware bisque; moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 
  2. Fill the writer bottle with SW-125 Purple Mint and assemble the bottle with the metal tip. 
  3. Lightly sketch on a mushroom design using a pencil. Squeeze the SW-125 Purple Mint from the bottle directly onto the bisque surface. 
  4. Use a CB-106 #6 Script Liner to fill in any mushroom heads with 2 coats of SW-125 Purple Mint. 
  5. Use an RB-144 #4 Soft Fan to apply 2 coats of SW-125 Purple Mint to the rim and back of each piece, avoiding the foot. 
  6. Use an RB-144 #4 Soft Fan to apply 2 coats of SW-110 Oyster to the entire piece, avoiding the foot.  
  7. Use a clean sponge to wipe the excess glaze off of the foot. 
  8. Fire to cone 5/6 (sample was fired to cone 6).
