Striped Holly Plate

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. On the DSS-0162 Holiday Icons screen, locate the holly with 3 leaves. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with excess screen around the edges.
  3. Squeeze around 2 TBS of SC-15 onto the palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more silkscreen medium or glaze.
  4. Place the holy on the top center of the plate, going slightly off of the plate. While holding the screen firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium, and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward.
  5. Repeat, going down the center of the plate. Rotate the screen so they are not all gong in the same direction. Repeat, going down either side of the center.
  6. Squeeze 1 TSP of SC-8 Just Froggy, SC-27 Sour Apple and SC-73 Candy Apple Red onto the palette.
  7. Using the Script Liner with SC-73 Candy Apple Red, place a dot in each berry. Then dip the brush in water to spread the glaze, filling up the entire berry.
  8. Using the Script Liner with SC-8 Just Froggy and SC-27 Sour Apple, apply the glaze to a small portion of the leaves. Then dip the brush in water to spread the glaze, filling up the leaves. Alternate between colors without cleaning your brush.
  9. Allow glaze to dry completely.
  10. Using MC-001 6mm Low Track Masking Tape and MC-002 12mm Low Track Masking Tape, make vertical lines on the plate. Use the 2 sizes randomly and space them randomly. You don’t want it to look uniform or perfect.
  11. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-73 Candy Apple Red and SC-81 Cinnamon Stix onto the palette. Apply 1 coat to the areas between the tape. Do not glaze right next to the holly, leave a small gap. Randomly use each color. Do not clean your brush.
  12. Remove tape before glaze is completely dry.
  13. Using the Soft Fan with SC-15 Tuxedo, apply 2 coats to the back of the plate. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  14. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping
