  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe the bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Apply masking tape in diagonal lines down the piece to create 2 sections (a total of 4 pieces)
  3. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SW-203 Root Beer in between the masking tape (recede the coats near the bottom of the piece).
  4. Using a RB-144 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SW-203 Root Beer to the inside of the piece.
  5. Apply 3 coats of SW-250 White Opal to the outside of the piece, avoiding the bottom (recede coats near the base).
  6. Use a clean sponge to wipe the excess glaze off the foot.
  7. Fire to cone 5 / 6 – sample was fired to cone 6.
