Mixed Techniques – Limes & Apples

Designer: Amy Hill



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Rip one piece of paper into a large semi-circle for lime shape.
  3. Using the Paper Texture technique and a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan, apply 1 heavy coat of SC-77 Glo-Worm and SC-27 Sour Apple together on back of ripped piece of paper. With painted side down, press paper against plate in desired location. Remove paper.
  4. Rip second sheet of paper into small pieces. Using a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan, apply 1 heavy coat of SC-11 Blue Yonder, SC-29 Blue Grass, SC-12 Moody Blue, and/or SC-15 Tuxedo to paper pieces, and press against plate in remaining areas. Once remaining areas are covered, remove paper pieces.
  5. Using the Bubbles technique, apply SC-26 Green Thumb over lime.
  6. Rip remaining paper into narrow strips. Using a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan, apply 1 heavy coat of SC 26-Green Thumb and SC-36 Irish Luck to narrow strips. Press strips against edge of lime.
  7. Using the Etching technique and back end of a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan, etch a center point into lime and etch triangles out from that center point. Etch any additional accent lines as desired.
  8. Using a dry CB-310 Size 10 Flat Shader, feather 2-3 thin coats of SC-15 Tuxedo against edge of bisque.
  9. Using the Screen Printing technique and SC-15 Tuxedo, transfer lime silkscreen where desired. May repeat 2-3 times.
  10. Using the Fleckle technique, apply 1 layer of SC-15 Tuxedo. 11. Let dry completely.
  11. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
