Magma Silkscreen Vase

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Thin about 2 oz of SW-210 Emerald the the consistency of heavy cream (2/1 glaze/water). Roll the glaze to coat the inside of the vase, pour excess glaze out, and dry upside down.
  2. Use a pencil to draw a band about 1/2 way down the vase.
  3. Use a palette knife to mix AC-310 Silkscreen Medium with SW-301 Iron Wash until it is about the consistency of peanut butter.
  4. Align the mask screen with the drawn band and apply the top 1/2 of the screen to the piece above the band. Wash and completely dry the screen to repeat on the other side.
  5. Apply 3 coats of SW-405 Light Magma below the bad, avoid the foot.
  6. Apply 2 coats of SW-210 Emerald above the band. Don’t over brush the glaze one the first coat because the screen will smear if it’s brushed too much. Be aware of your brush strokes and the evenness of application to achieve an even finish.
  7. Apply 1 coat of SW-301 Iron Wash over the Magma.
  8. Use a clean sponge to wipe away any glaze that may have gotten on the foot.
  9. Let dry completely.
  10. Fire to shelf cone 5/6.
