Holiday Fox

Designer: Tim McPherson



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.
  2. Moisten a clean BT-910 Synthetic Sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  3. Using the MC-002 6mm(1/4″) Low Tack Maskingtape, apply to the outer edge to create a protected border.
  4. Using the CB-604 # 4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-022 Tan to the top of the plate.
  5. Using the CB-604 # 4 Soft Fanb, apply 3 coats of FN-008 Brown to the back and edges.
  6. Remove the Masking tape while the glaze is still damp to help stop chipping.
  7. Using the AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper and a pencil, trace on the pattern.
  8. Using the CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-80 Basketball to the body, tail and upper face area on the fox.
  9. Using the CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the tip of the tail, inside of the ears, lower section on the face, chest and the feet of the fox.
  10. Using the CB-106 # 6 Script Lineer, apply 3 coats of SC-94 Curry Around to the hat.
  11. Using the CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-52 Toad-ily Green to the hat trim and the scarf.
  12. Outline and detail the fox using the CB-110 # 10/0 Liner loaded in SC-15 Tuxedo.
  13. Add dots to the fox geet using a brush handle loaded in SC-80 Basketball.
  14. Place SC-15 Tuxedo onto a palette or tile and sprinkle a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium over the glaze. Using a palette knife, mix color and medium together to the constincy of peanut butter. If the product is too thinit will bleed and give a blurred image. If to thick, it may not penetrate the screen and give a clean image.
  15. Position the pine branch from  DSS-0106 Winter/Holiday shiney side down onto the piece. Hold in place wiht your non-dominate hand and apply the product from the center out on the screen. You may use your finger, a squeegee or sponge to apply. Rub the mixture over the intire image-out of the drawn line. (see package on how to prep a Designer Silkscreen). Holding the silkscreen in place lift up a corner to view the image. If good remove, if areas have been skipped set down and apply more product.
  16. Repeat step 15 but this time using the lettering and bow from DSS-0133 Merry Christmas.
  17. Using the Cb-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of S-2708 Oriental Caramal to the border.
