Marbled Elements Vase with White 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-103 Sea Spray 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-103 Sea Spray, EL-118 Blue Grotto and EL-130 Sea Green.
  4. Using the Soft Fan with EL-103 Sea Spray, 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-802 White 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. Put on your nitrile gloves. 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. Dispose of the bowl or use it only for this technique.
  10. Fire to cone 018.
