Southwest Style Rustic Tray

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Thicken SC-29 Blue Grass with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium with a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter.
  3. Find the center of the tray, pencil a line in the length and width of the tray. Where the two lines cross is where to begin the design. Use the design as shown on the tray from DSS-0140 Southwest Designs. Place the shiny side down, rub the thickened SC-29 Blue Grass over the design with your finger. Repeat to fill in the tray, overlap the end line of the design to begin the next screen.
  4. Once the tray is filled with the design, it creates an open space, in this space brush with two coats of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral. When dry, screen in the center of this area with another design from DSS-0140 Southwest Designs, as shown. Use the thickened Blue Grass.
  5.  Brush two coats of SC-75 Orange A Peel in the orange squares, and SC-77 Glo-Worm in the triangles and squares.
  6. Brush the back and edge with three coats of FN-037 Chartreuse, use CB-604 Soft Fan.
  7. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze or use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze.
  8.  Fire to 05/06.
