Octopus Mug

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Slightly thin FN-026 Salmon Mousse, pour inside of the mug, turn to coat, pour out the excess glaze and drain.
  3. Use the Script Liner to apply three coats of SC-22 Carrot Top to the head of the octopus. Add SC-87 Ruby Slippers to the brush where the tentacles begin. Add SC-3 Wine About It to the brush as you get near the end of the tentacle.
  4. Shade around the head of the octopus dish with two coats of  SC-97 Ruby Slippers. Apply SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to the center section of the head to brighten. Add shading with SC-75 Orange-A-Peel around the octopus tentacles. Let dry.
  5. Outline the loops on the tentacles with SG-408 Orange. Use the Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo to outline the mouth, eye and in the spirals at the end of the tentacles.
  6. Use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of S-2101 Clear on the mug.
  7. Fire to cone 05/06.
