Happy Easter Bunny Plate

Designer: Bob Moreni



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of FN001 White to the top side of the plate. Allow to dry!
  3. Print 2 copies of the pattern. Place both copies on top of each other and cut out around the outside edge of the bunny pattern not the lettering.
  4. Position one of the patterns on the plate. Using a CB604 #4 Soft Fan, load the brush with water then lift half of the pattern, apply the water to the plate then lay the pattern down. Repeat with the other side of the bunny pattern. Using a piece of paper towel, lay the paper towel over the bunny pattern and press on the paper towel. This will help absorb any extra water and secure the pattern to the plate. There should be no edges of the patten sticking up, if so re-wet and press with the paper towel to secure.
  5. Using a CB604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN057 Periwinkle to the top of the plate. Do not brush the glaze toward the pattern but away from the pattern to avoid the glaze going under the pattern.
  6. Remove the pattern from the plate before the glaze dries. Allow the plate to dry!
  7. Place the other cut out pattern in position, slide a sheet of AC230 Clay Carbon paper under the pattern and trace the details of the pattern. Also, trace the lettering.
  8. Using a CB404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 3 coats of SC100 Making Me Blush to the inside of the ears, feet and on the nose. Allow to dry!
  9. Using a CB404 #4 Pointed Round and a CB202 #2 Detail, referring to the pattern, apply 3 coats each of the Stroke & Coat colors to the egg. Add dots with the end of a brush handle or a stylus.
  10. Using a CB202 #2 Detail, apply 3 coats of SC104 Grape Expectations to the lettering Happy Easter.
  11. Place some EZ047 Thundercloud Grey and EZ030 Rose onto a palette, using a CB308 #8 Flat Shader, shade around the bunny’s body and the muzzle with the EZ047 Thundercloud Grey. Shade the ears, feet, and nose with EZ030 Rose.
  12. Using a CB110 #10/0 Liner, outline and detail the bunny and the egg with EZ012 Cobalt Jet Black.
  13. Using a CB604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN058 Matcha to the back of the plate. Allow to dry!
  14. Stilt and fire to cone 06/05.
