Sunshine Lisa Mug

Designer: Elizabeth Downing



  1. Wipe dust from bisque with a damp sponge.
  2. Using a #4 soft fan brush (RB144) apply 3 coats of EG002 Speckled Buff Engobe to the mug starting just below the lip of the mug.
  3. Let dry completely.
  4. Using a #4 soft fan brush (RB144) apply 2 coats of SW141 White Matte to entire mug, over the engobe, stopping 2/3 from the bottom.
  5. In a ½ circle, apply 2 coats of SC097 Cant-Elope to create the sun.
  6. While the White Matte is still damp, carve the “rays” of the sun.
  7. Once the mug is dry, use the #8 Round brush (RB118) and apply 2 coats of SW001 Stoneware Clear over the rays. If this step is eliminated, overglaze will not be glossy, it will be matte.
  8. Fire to cone 6
  9. After cone 6 firing, apply lines of OG805 Premium Gold overglaze on the “rays”
  10. Let overglaze dry completely then fire to cone 019.
