Jute Jungle Gems Flower Tile

Designer: Bob Moreni


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-008 Brown to the front & sides of the tile. Allow it to dry.
  3. Using a pencil, trace the pattern on the tile.
  4. Cut pieces of the Jute Twine the length of the sides of each petal.
  5. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply some FN-008 Brown to one side of a petal then lay a piece of the Jute twine into the wet glaze and then apply more glaze over the top of the jute twine.
  6. Repeat step 1 for each petal.
  7. When all the petals are complete, take a piece of paper towel, lay the paper towel on the tile, and press to secure the jute twine to the tile and remove any excess glaze.
  8. Using the CB-106 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SC-27 Sour Apple to the background areas of the tile.
  9. Using the CB-106 #4 Soft Fan, apply a puddle coat of CG-756 Firecracker to the lower half of the large petals then apply a puddle coat of CG-753 Sassy Orange to the upper half of each flower petal.
  10. Using the CB-106 #4 Soft Fan, apply a puddle coat of S-2729 Citrus Orange to the smaller petals.
