Melon Crystal Frog

Designer: William Pulse



  1. Wipe down the bisque with a moistened Synthetic Sponge to remove any dust or debris from the ware.
  2. Optional Step; If the piece will be outside, apply S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the inside of the frog by thinning the glaze and rolling the inside with color.
  3. Apply 3 coats of FN-007 Green to the feet to about 2” from the toe tips using CB-604 Soft Fan. Use the brush loaded with water to wash away the edge of the green back towards the leg. Toe tips and feet should be solid green fading up the leg to nothing. Apply 3 coats to the bottom of the frog only.
  4. Paint in the eyes with 2-3 coats of SC-24 Dandelion using CB-404 Pointed Round. Shade the iris of the eye with SC-25 Crackerjack using the same brush. Paint in the pupil using CB-220 Detail Liner loaded with SC-15 Tuxedo. Let Dry.
  5. Apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the eyes using CB-220 Detail Liner.
  6. Shake and Stir CG-982 Mixed Melon. Apply 3 full coats of glaze with crystals to the frog excluding the eyes and solid green areas of the feet. Trail one coat of crystal glaze over the thin areas of green on the wrist of the frog feet. A heavier application of the crystals on the frog makes a nicer pattern to the glaze after firing. A little over half to about two-thirds of a jar of glaze was used on the frog.
  7. Stilt and Fire to Shelf Cone 05-06.
