Rooster on a Fence

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust making sure not to over saturate the bisque.
  2. Use SL-433 Crooked Lines Stencil to trace the fence and post onto the tile for placement.
  3. Place SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile and sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife mix color and medium to the consistency of thick peanut butter. If the mix is too thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if it is too thick add more Stroke & Coat. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick of a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and result in blank areas on your screen.
  4. Position the Rooster screen from DSS-128 The Farm, shiny side down on the top of the fence and hold in place. Starting from the center out, rub the mixture on the screen with your finger. Lift a corner up to check if enough color is going through. Remove the screen and wash with water. Do not let the color dry in the screen. This will cause damage to the screen.
  5. Use the group of daisies from DSS-0138 Floral 2, screen, as above, to the background of the tile.
  6. Use the Script Liner to apply two thinned coats of SC-27 Sour Apple to the foreground of the tile. Dab with thinned SC-26 Green Thumb.
  7. Thin SC-11 Blue Yonder like water. Use the Script Liner to spread the color around the flowers and rooster in the sky area.
  8. Apply a coat of SC-24 Dandelion tipped with SC-97 Cant-elope to the daisies. Apply SC-75 Orange A Peel to the centers.
  9. Use the Liner to apply one coat of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the cone and waddle. Apply one coat of SC-97 Cant-elope to the beak and legs.
  10. Place SL-433 Crooked Lines stencil onto the tile to create the fence. The fence should be just under the rooster’s feet; leave space for the rail. Pick up SG-501 Sculpting Medium with a squeegee or card, scrape against the stencil, lift off. Repeat for the rail.
  11. Use the Liner to outline the fence with SC-15 Tuxedo. Screen daisies with SC-15 Tuxedo between the rail in some of the spaces.
  12. Use the Script Liner to apply one coat of S-2101 Clear to the tile, avoiding the fence. This will allow the fence to remain matte.
  13. Fire to cone 06.
