Mother of Pearl Wicker Tree

Designer: Bob Moreni



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 
  2. Using an CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-221 Milk Glass White to the tree. Allow to dry!  
  3. Stilt and fire to cone 06.  Use a Coffee Filter to remove the Tumbler from the kiln to prevent getting any fingerprints on them. 
  4. Using an OB-916W #6 Filbert (Silver Handle), apply 1 coat of OG802 White Gold to the Base and tip of the tree. 
  5. Stilt and fire to cone 018. 
  6. Using a jar of OG803 Mother of Pearl add a drop of OG801 Bright Gold to it. Mix gently not to create air bubbles. 
  7. Using an OB-901 Mother of Pearl ¼” Shader, apply the Dirty Mother of Pearl swirling it over the wicker part of the tree. The more you swirl the more color you will get.  Clean brush with OA901 Essence that is reserved for the OG803 Mother of Pearl. 
  8. Stilt and fire the Tree to cone 020.
