Norse Blue Scratch Tumbler_2019 CeramaJam West

Designer: Bre Kathman



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a water-based marker laid flat against the table, draw a line around the bottom of the piece. This is the “no paint line.”
  3. Use the Soft Fan to apply one coat of SW-118 Sea Salt on the outside of the mug.
  4. While the glaze is still wet, use the end of the brush to carve scratches into the mug around the top 1/3 of the mug. Let dry.
  5. Use the Soft Fan to apply two generous coats of SW-166 Norse Blue over the entire outside of the cup. Let dry.
  6. Using the same brush, apply three coats of SW-166 Norse Blue to the inside of the tumbler.
  7. Fire to cone 6.
