Snake Tile

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Cut out the pattern of the snake. Trace around the snake onto a tile.
  3. Apply one coat of UG-51 China White over the snake pattern, going past the edges.
  4. Wet the snake area with water, then place the paper snake on the wet surface. Press down gently with a paper towel to remove excess water and to ensure the edges are sealed.
  5. With the plastic card pick up UG-51 China White then add some UG-46 Bright Yellow and UG-219 Marine Blue. Drag the color down the tile and over the paper snake, holding the card almost flat to apply the color.. Repeat for a second application.
  6. Remove the paper snake.
  7. Use the Script Liner to apply two coats of UG-51 Bright Blue over the snake. Use the Liner to apply UG-204 Orange for the stripes.
  8. Use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze.
  9. Fire to cone 04.
