Heart Wine Tumbler

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper over the front of the tumbler. Trace the lettering using the pencil of freehand ‘love’. Try to center it on the tumbler.
  3. Place the ½” and 1” heart stickers around the lettering. Outline the hearts with a pencil.
  4. Place the bubble wrap on a flat surface, textured-side up. Squeeze around 1 TBS of CN 202 Bright Grey onto the palette. Dip the sponge on a stick into the glaze and sponge the bubbles. Repeat until all bubbles have glaze on them. Take the bubble wrap and press the glazed side around the tumbler.
  5. Remove all stickers.
  6. Using the Script Liner with CN 081 Light Wine, CN 261 Light Grape and CN 292 Bright Purple, apply 1-2 coats to the hearts. One coat will produce pastel colors (as shown). Two coats will produce more vibrant colors. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Detail Liner with CN 253 Black, outline the hearts and lettering.
  8. Using the Soft Fan with CN 081 Light Wine, apply 2 coats to the inside of the tumbler. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  9. Dip in Pure Brilliance Clear Dipping.
  10. Fire to cone 06.
