Jewel-Toned Faceted Vase

Designer: Laura Fraedrich



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust
  2. Pour about 1/4 cup of IN1026 Very Black into the cup and thin slightly with a splash of water. Ratio should be about 5 parts glaze to 1 part water.
  3. Mix up thinned glaze and pour into the inside of the vase. Roll it around until the inside is coated and pour out any extra glaze.
  4. Pour out about a quarter sized puddle of each color of EZ Stroke onto the palette.
  5. Using a wet CB-310 Flat Shader, load the brush with EZ028 Leaf Green and apply one coat to one of the facets at the top of the vase The strokes should go straight up and down and should look translucent. If the EZ Strokes go on too thick, go over it with a brush loaded with plain water to thin it out. There should be four ‘stripes’ on each facet. Repeat on the facet directly across from it on the vase, leaving three facets in between.
  6. Repeat step 5 on the facet one space over and one space down. Keep repeating until you get to the bottom. The painted facets should be in a diagonal line.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for the other three colors – EZ050 Pueblo Purple, EZ058 Poppy Orange and EZ075 Passion Red.
  8. Test both colors of French Dimensions on the palette or piece of paper. They should flow easily out of the bottle. Use a needle tool if you need to unclog the tip. If the product is too thick and won’t easily come out of the bottle, add some water and stir well with a wooden skewer.
  9. Using the FD254 Black Licorice French Dimensions, draw an L shape with a spiral at the end on each red and green facet.
  10. Using the FD258 Pure White French Dimensions, draw the same shape on each orange and purple facet. Let dry.
  11. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan Brush, apply 2 coats of PG Pure Brilliance Brush-on onto the vase.
  12. Stilt and fire to cone 06
