Stoneware Gloss Brushstroke Mug

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with soft fired stoneware bisque; moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.  
  2. Apply 3 coats of SW-501 White Gloss to the outside of the mug, avoiding the bottom and handle. 
  3. Use the script liner to load a brush with SW-512 Coral Gloss. Dip the tip in the SW-507 Bright Green Gloss. Apply by pressing the brush down onto the bisque and as you pull back, raise and twist the brush away from the bisque to create a tear drop shaped brush stroke.  
  4. Repeat as desired until the design is filled in.  
  5. Use the mini liner loaded with SW-508 Black Gloss to outline the design; you will need to apply 2 coats. Once it is outlined, add the detail lines and thicken the outline.    
  6. Use a soft fan to apply 3 coats of SW-508 Black Gloss to the inside and handle.   
  7. Use a clean sponge to wipe the excess glaze off of the foot.  
  8. Fire to cone 5/6. (Sample was fired to cone 6)
