Icy Penguin Mug

Designer: Tim McPherson



  1. Trace on the pattern using the Clay Carbon paper.
  2. Outline and detail the pattern with the Black Designer Liner using the metal tip.
  3. Using the Script Liner, apply 2 coats of The Blues to the lower section for the ice area.
  4. Using the Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of Dandelion to the beak.
  5. Using the Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of the Speckled Cotton Tail to the white areas on the penguin.
  6. Using the Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of Speckled Tuxedo to the black areas on the penguin.
  7. Using the Pointed Round and Script Liner, apply Fruit of the Vine to areas of the hat, scarf and handle.
  8. Using the Pointed Round and Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of Blue Isle to areas on the scarf, hat, skates and inside the mug.
  9. Using the Soft Fan and Script Liner, apply 2 coats of Clear to the areas around the design, not the pattern areas, handle, inside or bottom of the piece, as Stoneware needs to be fired dry footed.
  10. Remove any color from the foot area of the mug and place on a well kiln washed shelf and fire to shelf cone 6.
  11. Using the OB-901 MOP Brush, apply 1 coat to the background areas.
