  1. Wipe ware with a dampened sponge.
  2. Thin SW503 Orange Gloss with water to a cream consistency in a plastic cup to roll inside of the latte cup.
  3. Pour thinned glaze inside of cup and roll around to cover. Pour out any remaining glaze.
  4. Place SW503 Orange Glass and SW504 Red Gloss on the palette.
  5. Starting at the top of the cup load the glaze brush with Orange Glaze and apply about one third of the way down including handle.
  6. Half load the glaze brush with the Orange Gloss and the other half with Red Gloss and apply to the middle third of the cup blending into the Orange at the top third.
  7. Finally load the glaze brush with Red Gloss and apply to bottom third of cup blending into the middle third of cup.
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 until you have applied three coats.
  9. If you get any glaze on the very bottom of the cup remove it with a dampened sponge so glaze when not stick to shelf during firing.
  10. When dry, transfer the pattern to the cup with clay carbon and pencil. Trim the pattern with scissors for easier application.
  11. Apply 1 coat of EZ012 Cobalt Jet Black to pattern using the Shader and Round brushes.
  12. When dry place on the kiln shelf and fire to a cone 6.



Make sure EZ Stroke is thinned properly to a light cream consistency before application. If over applied when doing a majolica technique EZ Stroke can bubble.
