Ornament Tray With French Dimensions

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. On the DSS-0160 Vintage Holiday screen, locate the three ornaments. Draw an outline around them in permanent marker. Cut them out with excess screen around the edges.
  3. Squeeze around 1 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more silkscreen medium or glaze.
  4. Place the screens on the tray one at a time. While holding the screen firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium, and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward.
  5. Repeat step #4 until you have a line of ornaments across the flat portion of the tray.
  6. Using the Script Liner and Detail Liner with SC-28 Blue Isle, SC-88 Tu Tu Tango and SC-92 Café Ole, apply 2 coats to different areas of the ornaments. If you would like any areas white, do not glaze. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Script Liner and Soft Fan with SC-37 Ivory Tower, apply 2 coats to the background. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Squeeze around 1 TBS of SC-92 Café Ole onto the palette. Dip the sponge on a stick in to the glaze and sponge ST-129 Mini Fern stamp. Press onto the background. Repeat until the background is covered.
  9. Using FD 254 Black Licorice, outline the ornaments and make bows on top. Make a scalloped edge and dots going around the border.
  10. Using the Soft Fan with SC-15 Tuxedo, apply 2 coats to the back of the tray. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  11. Dip into NT-CLR Clear One Dipping glaze.
  12. Fire to cone 06.
