Silhouette Platters

Designer: Marcia Roullard



Crab Platter

  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Use the Soft Fan to apply three coats of FN-032 Canton Jade onto the front of the platter. Let dry.
  3. Use the sponge-on-a-stick to apply SC-28 Blue Isle to the MT-013 Honeycomb Mat then press to the inside of the platter. Tip: It is not necessary to get the entire press. Allowing the stamped image to have uneven edges or open spaces will add a rustic look to the design.
  4. Squeeze about 2 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo onto a palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife to create the consistency of peanut butter.
  5. Place the crab silkscreen (shiny side down) from DSS-0148 Sea Life 3 XL on the platter. While holding the screen firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward. Slowly pull up the screen to avoid smearing.
  6. Use the Script Liner to fill in the crab silkscreen with one coat of SC-15 Tuxedo.
  7. Use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of FN-009 Black to the back of the platter.
  8. Use the Clay Carbon Paper to trace the words “Walk This Way” onto the piece. Use the Liner to apply one coat of SC-15 Tuxedo to fill in the words.
  9. Fire to cone 05/06

Goat Platter

  1. Follow the directions above using FN-053 Mint for the top of the background color on the front of the platter.
  2. Use a mix of SC-27 Sour Apple and SC-52 Toad-ily Green for the mat stamping.
