Haunted House Plate

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.
  2. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SC-35 Gray Hare to the top if the plate. When applying the 2nd coat of SC-35 Gray Hare, load 1/2 the brush with SC-29 Bluegrass and apply in a cross hatch pattern. Repeat the previous step, but use SC-27 Sour Apple and SC-60 Silver Lining for a grand total of 3 coats.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-77 Glo-Worm to the windows and door and SC-13 Grapel to the chimney.
  5. Using the same brush, apply 2 coats of SC-29 Bluegrass to the roof and SC-36 Irish Luck to the grass. Using a CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-13 Grapel to the trim around the windows and door.
  6. Using AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, transfer the design onto the plate.
  7. Place SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile and sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium.
  8. Using a palette knife mix color and medium to the consistency of thick peanut butter. If the mix is too thin, add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium, or if it is too thick add more Stroke & Coat. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick of a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give blank areas in your screen.
  9. Use the spider web screen from DSS-118 Halloween and apply the screen in the circle windows.
  10. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner, outline the details with 1 coat of SC-15 Tuxedo and fill in the monster and fence.
  11. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-29 Bluegrass to the monster’s shadow.
  12. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-009 Black to the back of the plate.
  13. Let dry completely.
  14. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
