Rainbow Mother of Pearl Tumbler

Designer: Bob Moreni



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 
  2. Using an CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-009 Black to the inside and the outside of the Tumbler. Allow to dry! 
  3. Stilt and fire to cone 06. Use a Coffee Filter to remove the Tumbler from the kiln to prevent getting any fingerprints on them. 
  4. Place the Tumbler on a Banding Wheel and center it. 
  5. Using OB-901 Mother of Pearl ¼” Shader, apply OG803 Mother of Pearl in a horizontal pattern around the Tumbler. Clean brush with OA901 Essence that is reserved for the OG803 Mother of Pearl. 
  6. Stilt and fire the tumbler to cone 020.
