Mistletoes Plate

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Squeeze around 2 TBS of SC-36 Irish Luck onto the palette. Dip the sponge on a stick into the glaze and sponge one of the baby’s foot. Take the plate and press against the baby’s foot. Repeat with the other foot. Allow glaze to dry completely.
  3. On the DSS-0162 Holiday Icons screen, locate the holly with 2 leaves. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with excess screen around the edges.
  4.  Squeeze about 2 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more silkscreen medium or glaze.
  5. Place the holly above the footprints. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward.
  6. Place the AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper onto the plate. Position the pattern so that the ribbons are next to the feet. Trace with a pencil. Position the pattern so that the lettering is below the footprints. Trace with a pencil.
  7. Using the Script Liner and Detail Liner with SG-403 Red, apply 1 coat to the berries, ribbons, and writing.
  8. Using the Script Liner with SG-405 Green, apply 1 coat to the leaves.
  9. Using the pencil, sketch the name below “Mistletoes” and the year next to the prints.
  10. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, make accent lines. Apply 1 coat over the name and year.
  11. Using the Soft Fan with SG-704 Peppermint, apply 2 coats over the front and back of the plate.
  12. Fire to cone 06.
