Springtime Tumbler

Designer: Cassidy Chester



  1. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.  
  2. Use the Soft Fan and Script Liner to apply 3 coats of SC-9 Jaded on the inside of the cup and on the bottom. Let dry.  
  3. Using a sponge, dab the following colors in large swatches around the cup: SC-74 Hot Tamale, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel, SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-27 Sour Apple, SC-11 Blue Yonder, and SC-13 Grapel. You can blend them where they run into each other, but it doesn’t have to be perfect! Let Dry.  
  4. With a clean, damp sponge, wipe away the color on the raised areas of the cup. Take care to leave color in the indentions. Use a clean part of the sponge with each wipe so you take the paint away rather than pushing it around. Let dry.  
  5. Use the Writer Bottle + Tip with SC-15 Tuxedo to draw a circle around one of the indents. Then, create 5 petals coming from the center to finish the flower. Add a stem from the flower to the base of the cup (wavy or straight lines) Then, add leaves to the stem. Continue around the cup, painting flowers at 1” – 2” inch intervals. Let dry.  
  6. Using the same writer bottle, draw grass in a flicking motion from the base. Fill in all the spaces between flowers with grass. Let dry.  
  7. Use the Script Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo to line the rim – approx. ¼” thick. Let dry.  
  8. OPTION: Use a toothbrush or stiff brush with SC-15 Tuxedo to add splatters by flicking the brush with your finger towards the piece. Let dry. 
  9. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze. 
  10. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
