Mermazing Canvas

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
    Cut out the screens from DSS-0157 Under The Sea needed for the project. Use a dry erase marker to scribble on the shiny side of the screen, wipe off with a paper towel. This will show the screen detail and will be easier to use.
  2. Tint S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing with food coloring to enhance the color. Thicken with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter, with the shiny side down, rub the thickened mix over the mermaid and fish screens. This is for the pattern only.
  3. Brush two coats of the Stroke & Coat® colors over the various sections of the screen, use SC-41 Cashew Later for the black mermaids’ flesh tone.
  4. Thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter.
  5. Line up the various screens used so they fit perfectly over the painted images, rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screens.
  6. Thin SC-11 Blue Yonder to the consistency of water and use RB-144 #4 Soft Fan to brush the thinned Blue Yonder on the background of the clipboard.
  7. Trace or write on the words You are Mermazing in the right corner of the tile with SG-401 Designer Liner Black.
  8. Brush one coat of SG-701 Speckta-Clear Star Dust over the tile, omit the skin of the mermaids, use RB-144 #4 Soft Fan.
  9. Brush the edge with a dark blue or teal color, two coats.
  10. Fire to cone 05/06.
