Skiing Snowman Mug

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Using a damp sponge, wipe the bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a palette knife, mix some SC-15 Tuxedo and AC-310 Silkscreen Medium together until they are about the consistency of peanut butter.
  3. Apply the silkscreen to the mug (shiny side down) and use your finger to rub the thickened Tuxedo through the screen. Once the entire image has been transferred, immediately remove the screen and rinse or place in water to clean later.
  4. Using a liner brush, apply a thin wash of SC-76 Cara-bein blue behind and around the snowman to add some weight/shading and to separate from the background.
  5. Using a liner brush, apply 1 coat of SC-14 Java Bean to the skis, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to the nose, and SC-76 Cara-bein Blue to the mittens, scarf, and hat.
  6. Using a liner or fan, apply 1-2 coats of SC-7 Leapin’ Lizard and SC-8 Just Froggy in alternating stripes around the top flare.
  7. Using a fan brush, apply 3 coats of SP-274 Hot Tamale to the inside and handle.
  8. Apply 2 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the outside of the mug, avoiding the handle.
  9. Allow to dry completely.
  10. Stilt and fire to cone 06 if cast with earthenware slip from mold.
