Ikat Kat

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Brush the tile with two coats of FN-001 White with CB-604 Soft Fan.
  3. To apply color to the MT-012 Ikat Mat use a large sponge-on-a-stick. Press the sponge into the glaze and then dab it off to the side on the palette. You do not want globs of glaze on the sponge. Begin with SC-12 Moody Blue, with a light up and down pouncing motion ink up a section of the mat. Work fast so the colors do not dry. With the same method overlap SC-97 Cant-Elope over the edge of the SC-12 Moody Blue and the next section. Do the same process with SC-24 Dandelion to the center. Then reverse the colors with the sponge to finish the pattern. Press the tile to the mat to transfer the color.
  4. Using the RB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the cat pattern on the tile. While the glaze is damp, scratch out the fur and facial design from the black glaze with a sgraffito tool. Be careful not to scratch down through the FN-001 White.
  5. Using the RB-144 #4 Soft Fan brush apply 1 coat of S-2101 Clear glaze to the front of the tile.
  6. Fire to cone 05/06.
