Pumpkin Flourish Containers

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Squeeze out around 1 Tbsp of SC-5 Tiger Tail, SC-25 Crackerjack Brown, SC-46 Rawhide, and SC-51 Poo Bear onto the palette.
  3. Using the Soft Fan with SC-5 Tiger Tail, apply 2 coats to the front of the plate. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  4. Position the plate so that the handle is going away from you.
  5. While the glaze from Step #3 is still wet, take the Script Liner and make random vertical lines on the front of the plate using the glazes from Step #2. They should be thick lines of glaze, with some overlapping.
  6. Dip the Soft Fan in water and go back and forth vertically over the front of the plate. This will blend the colors together.
  7. Cut around the pattern, so that it will fit on the plate. There is a separate pattern for each plate (small/large). You can also make your own pattern. After the front of the plate is dry to the touch, place the pattern over the top and lightly trace with the pencil. You want to see a faint line in the glaze.
  8. Using the Soft Fan with SC-48 Camel Back, apply 3 coats to the back and edges of the plate. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  9. After the front is completely dry, use SG-401 Black to outline the design on the front of the plate.
  10. Dip into NT-CLR Clear One Dipping.
  11. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
