Summer Vase

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Pour around 1/4 cup EL-151 Deep Water into the disposable cup. Thin with around 1 TBS of water. The glaze should be easily poured. Pour the glaze into the vase and rotate the inside. Place upside down on a few paper towels for a minute. Turn the vase over and wipe off any excess glaze with a damp sponge.
  3. Squeeze around 1 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the palette. Place the stamp down on a flat surface, textured side up. Dip the sponge on a stick in the glaze and sponge the stamp. Take the stamp and press it vertically on the lower half of the vase. Repeat until the lower half is covered.
  4. Using the Script Liner with SC-2 Melon-Choly, apply 1 coat to the flowers made by the stamp.
  5. Using the Script Liner with SC-26 Green Thumb and SC-27 Sour Apple, apply 1 coat to the leaves made by the stamp.
  6. Using the Soft Fan with NT-BR Clear One Brushing, apply 2 coats over the bottom half of the vase, including the bottom. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Soft Fan with EL-151 Deep Water, PC-601 Clear Cascades, EL-151 Deep Water and PC-602 White Cascades, apply 1 coat of each glaze to the upper half of the vase, in that order. Make sure glaze is dry between each coat.
  8. Fire to cone 06.
