Stitched Holiday Plates

Designer: Carmen Allen



1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Using a sponge, apply 1 coat of SC-16 cottontail to the top of the plate.

3. Once dry, dip the sponge in both SC-16 Cotton Tail and SC-83 Tip Taupe and apply 2 more layers to the plate. Refrain from overworking the glaze so it does not get completely mixed. This will help give the look of a felted texture.

4. Using AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, transfer one of the images onto the plate.

5. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, use 3 coats of SC-41 Brown Cow, SC-81 Cinnamon Stix, and SC-86 Old Lace to fill in the details.

6. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner, add the stitch details using 1 coat of SC-34 Down to Earth.

7. Let dry completely.

8. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
