Harvest Hedgehog Planter

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Squeeze around ¼ cup of SC-14 Java Bean into the cup. Add around 1 TBS of water and mix. It should be thin enough to be easily poured from the cup. Pour into the planter and rotate to cover the inside. Turn upside down to drain the excess glaze. Flip upright and use a damp sponge to remove any glaze drips on the outside of the planter.
  3. Using the Soft Fan with SC-37 Ivory Tower, apply 2 coats to the outside of the planter. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  4. Using the Soft Fan with FN-044 Yellow Orange, apply 1 coat to spines on the hedgehog.
  5. Squeeze around 1 TSP of SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-23 Jack O’ Lantern, SC-24 Dandelion and SC-78 Lime Light onto the palette. Using the Pointed Round, dip it into 1 of the colors. Place the tip of the brush at the end of one of the spines, then press the brush down and drag it across the bottom edge of the spine. This will add color to the bottom of each spine. Repeat with each of the colors until you have glazed every spine.
  6. Using the Script Line with SC-70 Pink-A-Dot, apply 1 coat to the inside of the ears.
  7. Squeeze around 1 TSP of SC-25 Crackerjack Brown, SC-14 Java Bean and SC-37 Ivory Tower onto the palette.
  8. Dip the sponge into SC-25 Crackerjack Brown and sponge from the nose to a little past the eyes. Dip the same sponge into SC-37 Ivory Tower and sponge over the edge of where you stopped sponging. This will make sure there isn’t an abrupt line
  9. Dip the sponge into SC-14 Java Bean and sponge around the tip of the nose.
  10. Using the Detail Liner with SC-14 Java Bean, outline half of the spines and add lines going down the centers. Repeat with SC-25 Crackerjack Brown with the other half of the spines. Outline the ears.
  11. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, apply 2 coats to the eyes and nose. Outline the mouth.
  12. Using the Soft Fan with NT-BR Clear One Brushing, apply 1 coat to the outside of the planter. Or dip into NT-CLR Clear One Dipping.
  13. Fire to cone 06.
