Peppermint Spiral Jar

Designer: William Pulse



  1. Wipe down the bisque with a moistened Synthetic Sponge to remove any dust and debris. Check the inside as well.
  2. Apply 2-3 coats of FN-001 White using CB-604 Soft Fan to the entire piece (inside and out.) Let Dry.
  3. Using a tape measure to mark off an even number of spaces to the top rim and lower portion of the bowl of the jar along the stem. Using a pencil to draw in soft “S” shapes that connect the top and bottom markings. The connecting points are 2 spaces off from the top to create the spiral effect of the lines. If the lines aren’t prefect, remember you can adjust the line as you paint. The line is there as a guide and isn’t absolute. This is done to the base and top finial as well.
  4. Using CB-110 Liner loaded with SC-73 Candy Apple Red to apply 2-3 coats to in the lines. Load the brush fully and start at the top of the jar bowl. The lines are thicker at the top and trail off to a fine line towards the bottom at the stem. If the brush runs out of color while painting the line, reload the brush and restart back slightly where the brush stroke ended. Paint in the lines on the base and finial in the same manner. Let dry.
  5. Apply 3 coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the lid excluding the top and middle finial and to the large middle bead on the stem using CB-604 Soft Fan and CB-404 Pointed Round.
  6. Apply 1 good coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to over the outside jar and lid using CB-604 Soft Fan.
  7. Stilt and Fire to Shelf Cone 05-06.
  8. Using a brush reserved for Fire Gold Luster only, apply 1 coat of the Gold Luster to the lid’s middle knob, two beads on the stem and to the top rim of the jar bowl. Clean brush with Gold Essence.
  9. Stilt and Fire to Shelf Cone 018.
