Hosta Leaf Plate

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Cut out the patterns, including the center of the sunflower. Trace around the patterns on the leaf.
  3. Use CB-106 Script Liner, load the brush with SC-97 Cant-elope, tip with SC-81 Cinnamon Stix, stroke in a petal. Re-load, for another petal, reverse the loading of color for darker petals, two coats.
  4. Brush SC-42 Butter Me Up to the center, swirl in SC-52 Toad-ily Green and SC-97 Cant-elope to the center, two coats.
  5. Brush two coats of SC-52 Toad-ily Green to the stem and leaves.
  6. Brush the crow with two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo, and the beak with SC-97 Cant-elope, two coats.
  7. Brush water over the flower and the crow, stick on the paper while wet, press with paper towel to remove gaps.
  8. Use a sponge on a stick to tap the middle section of the ST-100 Game Board Stamp with SC-15 Tuxedo, press to the center while the paper is still on.
  9. Brush two coats of EL-118 Blue Grotto to the top of the plate, brushing over the paper edges, with CB-604 Soft Fan, three coats to the back.
  10. When dry, brush two coats of SC-26 Green Thumb, and SC-27 Sour Apple on the lower section of the plate, and SC-97 Cant-elope around the flower changing to SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to the rest of the leaf plate. Use CB-604 Soft Fan, brush evenly.
  11. Remove the paper.
  12. Outline the petals, around the center of the flower with SC-15 Tuxedo, use CB-110 Liner.
