Marbled Elements Vase with Bright Gold

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Pour around ¼ cup of EL-101 Oyster Shell into the disposable cup. Thin with water until it is easily poured (start with 1 TBS). Pour into the vase and rotate until the inside is covered. Pour out the excess.
  3. Take your 3 AC-220 Detailer Tips and 1 oz Bottles and fill each one with the following glazes: EL-101 Oyster Shell, EL-127 Rose Granite and EL-132 Rust Red.
  4. Using the Soft Fan with EL-101 Oyster Shell, apply 1 coat to the outside of the vase.
  5. Holding the vase above the paper plate (or sink), take your 3 bottles of glaze and randomly squirt the outside of the vase until it is covered. Do this quickly so the glaze does not dry in place. Rotate the vase until it is as marbled as you would like. Firmly shake the vase until the excess glaze has dripped off.
  6. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
  7. Make sure your disposable bowl is large enough to fit the vase lengthwise. Fill your bowl with water that is slightly warmer than room temperature. Take OG-801 Bright Gold and pour out 3-5 drops onto the water. It should disperse on the top of the water. You might have some that sinks to the bottom. Make sure you can see a film on the top of the water.
  8. Take your vase and rotate it across the surface of the water. You should see some of the gold depositing on the vase. Repeat if you would like more gold.
  9. Fire to cone 018.
