Horse Tile

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Use the Soft Fan to apply 1-2 coats of FN-001 White to the front of the clay clipboard.
  3. Cut out the horse pattern.  When the Foundations White is nearly dry, pencil in the horse outline and the areas of bright blue and dark blue.
  4. Use the AC-222 Writer Bottle with the plastic tip only. Nearly fill the bottles one with SC-11 Blue Yonder and the other with SC-12 Moody Blue add a cap of water shake and stir.
  5. Fill AC-220 Detailer Bottles with PC-603 White Cascade and SG-402 White.
  6. Squirt water onto the glazed clipboard. Squirt SC-11 Blue Yonder into the bright blue areas and SC-12 Moody Blue into the dark blue areas. Move the clipboard to mix the colors together; don’t over mix which can cause the colors muddy. Take the plastic card and lay it almost flat to the clipboard; drag the colors together where they meet.
  7. While the glaze is wet, squirt PC-602 White Cascade, onto the wet surface. Drag it into the wet color leaving some lines and dots of color. Squirt SG-402 White in loopy lines. Let dry.
  8. Trace the horse onto the clipboard. Use the Script Liner to apply two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the horse.
  9. Cut a toilet paper roll in long cuts, thin the cuts, sponge with SG-402 White, stamp the pattern to the foreground of the tile. Cut long lengths of the roll, sponge with SC-15 Tuxedo, stamp to the tile to make a resemblance of a tree. Cut short sections of the roll to stamp with SC-15 Tuxedo for the horse’s mane.
  10. To separate the horse from the dark background, brush SG-410 Bright Blue at the head and the back and tail. Outline part of the head and ear with SG-402 White. Apply one coat of a clear glaze to the Designer Liner colors.
  11. Fire to cone 05/06.
