Stylized Iron Wash

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 stoneware bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Mix together SW-301 Iron Wash and AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to make a paste and apply the octopus from the DSS129 Stylized 2 silkscreen.
  3. Place the silkscreen in the center of the plate, shiny side down, and press the paste through the silkscreen with your finger. Immediately remove the silkscreen and place in water or wash.
  4. Using a script liner brush, apply 1 coat of SW-303 Manganese Wash to the rim of the plate.
  5. Using a fan brush, apply 3 coats of SW-204 Amber Topaz to the entire plate, avoiding the foot. Practice caution when applying the first coat as to not smear the Iron Wash.
  6. Fire to cone 5/6. Sample was fired to cone 6.
