Stroke & Coat in Design at Cone 6

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with soft fired stoneware bisque. 
  2. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 
  3. Use a mini liner to apply the line work details of your design. (You may want to apply the design with a washable marker first). No need to be very tight and precise with these lines, we will clean them up later.You will want to apply 2-3 coats. 
  4. Once dry, use a mini liner brush to apply the wax resist to the lines (this is where you will want precision with your line work).  
  5. Once the wax has dried thoroughly, use a damp sponge to gently wipe back along the lines to clean them up.  
  6. Use a script liner the fill in the design details, 3 coats. Use a damp brush to clean glaze off of the wax if it accumulates there.  
  7. Use a soft fan to apply the stoneware glaze to the outside and rim of the bowl. 
  8. Use a clean sponge to wipe the excess glaze off of the foot. 
  9. Fire to cone 5/6. (Sample was fired to cone 6)
