Apply 3 coats of SW-203 Root Beer to the Rim of the piece, Apply 2 coats to the back, avoiding the foot. If applying to the handle of the mug recede to coats! Mug handles are like slip and slides for glazes.
Place the piece on a banding wheel and while it is spinning apply 2 coats of SW-167 Sand and Sea. We left a build-up of glaze in a swirl so that will show in the firing.
Repeat the previous step, but with SW-176 Sandstone instead.
Use a sponge to clean up any glaze that may have gotten on the foot.
