Happy Penguin Mug

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Using a damp sponge, wipe the bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Use the AC-230 Clay Carbon Transfer Paper to transfer the image to the mug using a pen. The transfer paper is one-sided so be sure to check that you are using the correct side of the paper before transferring!
  3. Using a script liner, fill in the penguin with 3 coats of each glaze (colors marked on pattern).
  4. Using a combination of a fan and liner brush, fill in around the penguin with 3 coats of SP-245 My Blue Heaven.
  5. Using a mini liner, apply some outlining to the face and hat of the penguin.
  6. Using a soft fan, apply 3 coats of FN-006 Blue to the inside, handle, and rim of the mug.
  7. Allow to dry completely.
  8. Stilt and fire to cone 06 if cast with earthenware slip from mold.
