Nautical Manganese Plate

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 stoneware bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Mix together UG-50 Jet Black and AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to make a paste and apply the ship from DSS-100 Nautical silkscreen.
  3. Place the silkscreen in the center of the plate, shiny side down, and press the paste through the silkscreen with your finger. Immediately remove the silkscreen and place in water or wash.
  4. Using a script liner brush, apply 2 coats of SW-303 Manganese Wash to the rim.
  5. Using a fan brush, apply 2 coats of SW-131 Birch in a 1” band over the rim and into the plate.
  6. Apply 1 coats of SC-30 Blue Dawn around the ship.
  7. Using a fan brush, apply 1 coat of SW-001 Stoneware Clear to the entire face of the plate.
  8. Apply 3 coats of SW-131 Birch to the back of the plate, avoiding the foot.
  9. Use a damp sponge to wipe away any glaze that may have gotten on the foot.
  10. Fire to cone 5/6. Sample was fired to cone 6.
