Scraped Gold Faceted 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-033 Mediterranean Teal to the inside and outside of the Tumbler. Allow to dry! 
  3. Stilt and fire to cone 06. Use a Coffee Filter to remove the tree from the kiln to prevent getting any fingerprints on them. 
  4. Place some OG801 Bright Gold onto a glazed tile.  Using an OG-916G #6 Filbert (Gold Handle), apply a coat of OG801 Bright Gold to the outside of the Tumbler. Clean brush with OA901 Essence that is reserved for the OG801 Bright Gold. 
  5. Stilt and fire the Tumbler to cone 022. This is a soft firing temperature for the Gold. If left this way, it will rub off. We want it like this for this technique. 
  6. Using a Scrubby with a little Cleanser on it, rub the Fired Gold off the top surface of the Tumbler, leaving it in the deep crevices. Do not rub off the top rim. Rinse with clean water and allow to dry. 
  7. Stilt and fire the Tumbler to cone 018.
