Trippy Mushroom

Designer: Alana Cassel



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Draw out your shapes on the top of the mushroom, no wrong or right shapes, but make sure you have ample space between shapes on because you will be painting with the jungle gems and they can run a bit! Make sure you have 8 shapes/sections to paint. Start with a shape on the tip/top of the mushroom then continue with the rest!
  3. Draw out the funky shapes on the stem of the mushroom – both are open to your creativity. Start towards the bottom of the stem and just build around it!
  4. Number or label your sections with a letter or number to correspond to each Jungle Gem color you’re using. Paint 2-3 coats of each glaze in a shape.
  5. Once that is dry, you can paint the underneath of the mushroom a Stroke & Coat if you would like – sample was left white to match the top.
  6. When painting the stem, numbering what colors you want to go where is suggested. Paint 2-3 coats of each color – start with the section closest to the bottom and work to the top. Use any colors you want. The colors in the sample match the colors in the Jungle Gems.
  7. Clear glaze the top of the shroom if you left some white/bisque.
  8. Fire to cone 06.
