Ornate Carmen Mug

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with soft fired stoneware bisque. 
  2. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 
  3. Use the SG-401 Designer Liner to create the design around the lip of the mug. Using a pencil to create even sections is very helpful for creating an even pattern!  
  4. Once the Designer Liner is completely dry, apply 3 coats of SW-250 White Opal to the outside of the mug, avoiding the foot and handle. 
  5. Use a soft fan to apply 2 coats of SW-2165 Lavender Mist to the outside of the mug. 
  6. Use a soft fan and script liner to apply 3 coats of SW-140 Black Matte to the inside and handle of the mug. 
  7. Use a clean sponge to wipe the excess glaze off of the foot. 
  8. Fire to cone 5/6. (Sample was fired to cone 6)
