Stoneware Gloss Bicycle Plate

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Stoneware bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a fan brush, apply 2 coats of SW-502 Yellow Gloss to the face of the plate.
  3. Allow the glaze to dry and apply your first layer of tape/paper in a vertical striped pattern.
  4. Apply 1 coat of SW-506 Bright Blue Gloss to the face of the plate. Be sure to pay attention to your brushstrokes!
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 – 2 more times. Apply the tape/paper overlapping previous pieces and some in new spots, this will create a variety of color saturations amongst the striping.
  6. Remove the tape/paper when the glaze is no longer wet, but before it is completely dry.
  7. Mix together SC-15 Tuxedo and AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife. Combine until it is the consistency of peanut butter. Adjust ratios as necessary.
  8. Place the bike from DSS-142 Hipster Silkscreen onto the plate, shiny side down. Use your finger to work the thickened wash through the screen. Remove the screen immediately and rinse or place in water to preserve the screen.
  9. Using a fan brush, apply 3 coats of SW-506 Bright Blue to the back of the plate, avoiding the foot.
  10. Use a sponge to dry foot the piece and allow to dry completely.
  11. Place on a properly kiln washed shelf and fire to cone 06.
