Pom-Pom Faceted Star

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Tape off the narrow border around the inner star, tape of the second star, and the middle section. An X-ACTO blade works well to get clean edges.
  3. Brush SC-11 Blue Yonder to the inner star, leave an unglazed line between the sections of the star shape, brush one side of the facet with two coats and the other side of the facet with three coats to give it a shaded look.
  4. Brush the second star shape with 2-3 coats of SC-98 Slime Time, and the last taped off area with three coats of SC-7 Leapin’Lizard. Use RB-144 Soft Fan.
  5. When dry, thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter. Tape of the facet around the tree screen.
  6. Hold the shiny side down with the top of the tree pointing towards the center of the star, rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen. I recommend testing the Tuxedo with the screen to make sure you have the desired consistency, I generally use a thinner consistency to get a dark screen.
  7. Brush on two coats of S-2101 Clear or dip in a clear glaze.
  8. Fire to cone 05/06.
  9. Use hot glue to glue pom-poms to the star as show
