Hippie Gnome Jar

Designer: Laura Fraedrich



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the CB-604 #4 Fan Brush, apply two coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing Glaze to the inside of both pieces of the MB-1544 Gnome Jar
  3. Using the CB-604 #4 Fan Brush, apply two coats of alternating 1” strips of CG-999 Jazz Notes and CG-1001 Gogh Iris to the hat, loosely following the indentations of the folds. Repeat for shirt of the gnome.
  4. Using the CB-604 #4 Fan Brush apply 3 coats of SC-90 Elephant Ears to the beard.
  5. Using the CB-106 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-20 Cashew Later to the nose and hands.
  6. Using the synthetic sponge, sponge 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the beard.
  7. Using the synthetic sponge, sponge coat of SC-70 Pink-A-Dot to the nose.
  8. Using a CB-106 Script Liner fully loaded with SC-73 Candy Apple Red, dab a row of large dots around the bottom of the hat. Push down on the brush so that your dots become elongated and a heavy ‘blob’ of glaze is applied. Reload the brush after every dab. Refer to the photo for placement.
  9. Repeat the above step with SC-23 Jack O’ Lantern making a row above the Candy Apple Red, then with SC-76 Cara-bien Blue. Keep repeating until the entire hat is covered with dabs, leaving some white showing in between each. Repeat with the shirt.
  10. Stilt and fire to cone 06
