Overglaze Texture Vase

Designer: Bob Moreni



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 
  2. Thin some FN-003 Orange to the consistency of coffee cream.  Pour the glaze inside the vase and roll the glaze coating the inside of the vase. Drain the vase as you are rolling the glaze into a small cup.   Leave vase upside down to drain.  Wipe off any drips with a damp sponge.  Allow to dry! 
  3. Using an CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-003 Orange to the neck of the vase. 
  4. Using an CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2- 3 coats of CG-987 Tree frog to the bottom half of the vase.   Allow to dry! 
  5. Stilt and fire to cone 06.  Use a Coffee Filter to remove the Tumbler from the kiln to prevent getting any fingerprints on them. 
  6. Using an OB-916G #6 Filbert (Gold Handle), apply 1 coat of OG805 Premium Gold to the rim of the Vase. 
  7. Stilt and fire to cone 018. 
  8. Using an OB-901 Mother of Pearl ¼” Shader, apply OG803 Mother of Pearl swirling it over the Tree Frog glaze of the Vase. The more you swirl the more color you will get.  Clean brush with OA901 Essence that is reserved for the OG803 Mother of Pearl. 
  9. Stilt and fire the Vase to cone 020.
