Traditional Stack O’ Lantern

Designer: Elizabeth Carey



  1. Pour CD-028 Stack O’ Lantern mold ¼” thick. Refer to casting instructions.
  2. Once it is firm enough to handle, cut out the faces using the X-ACTO knife.
  3. Use the sponge to smooth down the faces and casting lines.
  4. Fire to cone 04.
  5. Use MC-002 12mm Low Track Masking Tape to tape over the faces.
  6. Pour 3oz of FN-044 Yellow-Orange into the disposable cup. Thin with enough water so that it is easily poured. Pour into the bottom of the pumpkins. Rotate until the inside is completely covered in glaze. Shake out the excess and place right-side up on a stack of paper towels. Remove the tape over the faces. Wipe off any excess glaze with a damp sponge.
  7. Using the Soft Fan with SC-97 Cant-elope, apply 1 coat to the outside of the pumpkins.
  8. Working in small sections, use the Soft Fan with SC-97 Cant-elope to apply another coat to the outside of the pumpkins. While that coat is still wet, shade the cervices with SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and the high areas with SC-55 Yella Bout It. Repeat until all pumpkins have a second coat.
  9. Using the Script Liner with SC-7 Leapin’ Lizard, apply 2 coats to the stem. Use a damp sponge to wipe off most of the glaze, leaving it in the crevices.
  10. Using the Script Liner with SC-78 Lime Light, apply 2 coats to the areas of the stem with no glaze. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  11. Using the Dagger Brush with thinned SC-48 Camel Back, float the glaze in the crevices of the pumpkins and stem.
  12. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping glaze.
  13. Fire to cone 06.
