Painterly Lemons

Designer: Marcia Roullard



1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Trace the pattern onto the piece using Clay Carbon Paper.

3. Use the Script Liner to apply two coats SG-407 Designer Liner Yellow to the Lemons. Add SG-402 Designer Liner White to highlight the lemons in the center.

4. Use the same brush to apply two coats of SG-409 Designer Liner Bright Green to the leaves. Shade the edges of the leaves with SG-405 Designer Liner Green. Note: Leave some of the Bright Green in the brush to help lighten the color.

5. Mix SG-402 Designer Liner White with a bit of SG-401 Designer Liner Black to create grey color. Use the Shader to create streaks in the background with CB-310 #10 Flat Shader.

7. Use the Soft Fan brush to apply two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the sides of the canvas.

8. Dip the canvas into NT-CLR or use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of NT-BR to the top of the canvas.

9. Fire to cone 05/06.
