Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Stoneware bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
Lay the water based marker on the table, press the mug up against the marker and rotate around. This applies a line at the bottom of the mug which is considered the “no paint” line. Do not apply glaze past this point.
Using the soft fan brush apply two coats of SW-131 Birch to the outside of the mug. Avoid the handle.
Allow the shine to fade before applying the next coat of glaze.
Now apply two coats of SW-128 Cordovan to the entire mug, inside, over the SW-131 and Birch.
Again, let the glaze dry or shine fade before applying another coat of glaze.
Using the sponge, remove any glaze from the no paint line or the bottom of the cup.
