Starry Night Stoneware Platter

Designer: Laura Fraedrich



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan Brush, apply 3 coats of SW-101 Stoned Denim to the backside of the SB-118 12” Stoneware Platter and the rim on the front. Make sure not to glaze the bottom of the plate and wipe off any glaze that may have gotten on it.
  3. Using a pencil and the AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, transfer the pattern to the plate.
  4. Fill the AC-222 bottle with SW-508 Black Gloss.
  5. Use the applicator bottle with the Black Gloss to draw over the lines of the patter. Do not draw the dotted line around the moon.
  6. Using the CB-106 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of each of the following colors to the front of the plate according to the pattern – SW-176 Sandstone, SW-252 Blue Opal, SW-169 Frosted Lemon, SW-117 Honeycomb, SW-170 Blue Hydrangea. Let dry.
  7. Using the CB-106 Script liner, apply two coats of SW-181 Night Moth over each section of the plate except the rim, the houses, the moon and the dotted circle around it, and the stars. Paint in the direction of the swirls when glazing the sky. Apply one coat to the dotted section around the moon (not the moon itself) and the outer circle of the stars.
  8. Using the CB-202 Detail Liner, apply coats of SW-501 White Gloss and SW-502 Yellow Gloss to the houses according to the photo, and add Yellow Gloss to make a smaller moon inside the big one.
  9. Do not stilt or hang over the edge of the kiln shelf.
  10. Fire to cone 5/6.
