Tiger’s Eye & Magma

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 stoneware bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Use a pencil to mark where you would like the stripes to be.
  3. Fill one writer bottle with SW-405 Light Magma and the other with SW-406 Dark Magma. You will not need the metal tip to apply the glaze; the more glaze the more texture!
  4. Apply alternating stripes of each magma in the area that you marked.
  5. Apply 3 coats of SW-112 Tiger’s Eye to the rest of the piece, avoiding the foot.
  6. Use a damp sponge to wipe away any glaze that may have gotten on the foot.
  7. Fire to cone 5/6. Sample piece was fired to cone 6.

This project is not dinnerware safe due to the Magma glazes. For decorative use only.
