Stoneware Deer with Tree

Designer: Tim McPherson



  1. Trace on the pattern using Clay Carbon paper.
  2. Outline the entire design using the Black Designer Liner and the metal tip.
  3. Apply 2 coats of Cotton Tail with the Pointed Round to the snow area.
  4. Side load the Pointed Round in The Blues and shade the snow.
  5. Apply 2 coats of Crackerjack Brown with the Pointed Round to the deer.
  6. Apply 2 coats of Tip Taupe with the Pointed Round to the antlers.
  7. Apply 2 coats of Java Bean with the Pointed Round to the hooves.
  8. Apply 2 coats of Ivory Tower to the spots on the deer.
  9. For the lights, apply 2 coats to each bulb with the listed colors: Dandelion, The Blues and Hot tamale.
  10. For the scarf, apply to the larger areas 2 coats of Teal Next Time, and the smaller stripes Dandelion using the mini liner.
  11. For the eye, apply 2 coats of Cotton Tail to the outer eye area, then 2 Coats of The Blues closest to the pupil using the mini liner.
  12. Squeeze out and thin a small amount of Designer Liner Green, and add the pine needles to the branches using the mini liner.
  13. Using the Script Liner and Soft Fan, apply 3 coats od Dark Green Gloss to the rim and back of the plate, excluding the foot area. Stoneware does not get stilted, so no glaze can be on the footed area or it will fuse onto the kiln shelf.
  14. Apply 1 coat of Sand and Sea to the front of the plate using the soft fan.
  15. Apply 1 coat of Speckta-Clear Peppermint over the Sand and Sea using the soft fan.
  16. Place onto a well kiln washed shelf and fire to shelf cone 5/6.
