Poured Elements Turtles

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Select which turtle you will glaze and assemble the glazes.
  3. Pour SG-201 Cobblestone Black into a AC-220 Detail Liner Bottle – do not dilute
  4. Pour some SC-97 Cant-elope or SC-29 Blue Grass into a AC-220 Detail Liner Bottle.
  5. Using the 2 oz. plastic cup, pour your Elements glaze into separate cups. Now add 1 tsp of water and mix to thin the Elements glaze. If doing Turtle #1 use EL-142 Grass & El-145 Ginger Root. Turtle #2 El-143 Cactus Flower and EL-145 Ginger Root.
  6. Using the RB-144 #4 Soft Fan Brush apply one liberal coat of either CG-992 Mint Chip or CG-995 Foggy Mist to the shell of the turtle (not the body).
  7. Holding on to the head or legs, pick up a cup of the glaze that has been diluted and pour over the shell, leaving blank areas for the next color.
  8. Pick up the second Element color and pour over the shell in the black areas. Turning and moving the turtle helps blend the glazes. Let the glaze drip over the edge of the shell for coverage.
  9. Use your fingers or a brush to move some of the glaze and insure that the shell is covered.
  10. Once the shell is covered with glaze, take the AC-220 Detail Liner Bottle with SG-201 Cobblestone Black – squirt the Cobblestone glaze into the wet Element glaze.
  11. Same step with the SC-97 Cant-elope or SC-29 Blue Grass. Squirt randomly over the turtle shell.
  12. Let the glaze set up and dry a bit before cleaning up the head and legs.
  13. Use a damp sponge to wipe off any excess glaze from the head and legs.
  14. Use the SG-401 Black Designer Liner to outline the facets on the turtles head and legs. Remember – Designer Liner is meant to be a thin application. If applied like a dimensional glaze it will pop off since it contains no frit.
  15. Allow to dry.
  16. Using the Soft Fan Brush apply two coats of EL-130 Sea Green to the head, legs and underneath the turtle.
  17. Fire to cone 05/06.
