Tree Frog Tile

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean Sponge and wipe Bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper trace the frog pattern onto the canvas.
  3. With a Bright Colored Fine Point Water Based Marker, re-trace the pattern. This will aid in seeing the pattern after it is stamped
  4. Using a DRY sponge-on-a-stick load the sponge with SC-15 Tuxedo. Tap the SC-15 Tuxedo onto the ST-367 Leafy Border Stamp then press the stamp gently onto the canvas over the pattern. Continue stamping around the piece. Allow to dry.
  5. To create a dimensional outline of the pattern, prepare SA-002 Black then outline the pattern with the Sa-002 Black.
  6. To prepare the Crystal glaze start by shaking the jar and stirring the crystals from the bottom of the jar then place on the lid and shake the jar again.
  7. Pour some of the glaze onto a palette, using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply a puddled coat of CG-795 Yadro Print to the tree trunk.
  8. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply a puddled coat of CG-982 Mixed Melon or CG-9893 Koi Pond to the frog body except the eyes and mouth area.
  9. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, drop and fill a coat of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the eyes.
  10. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 Coats of FN-203 Dry Champagne to the background of the canvas. Apply up to the SA-002 Black, but not over the frog or tree branch. Allow to dry.
  11. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 05/06.
