Unicorns & Rainbows

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan brush apply two coats of FN-001 White  to the front and sides of the MB-1352 6×6 Square Clay Canvas. Allow to dry.
  3. While the glaze is drying mix SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to create a paste for the DSS-146 Princess & Unicorn silkscreen. Refer to the Mayco Channel on YouTube for directions.
  4. Position the Unicorn and Rainbow on the Clay Canvas and apply the mixture to screen the image.
  5. Put the silkscreen in water to soak and clean.
  6. Use the palette knife to stir the CG-963 Kaleidoscope glaze. Mix it up, shake it up and pour out a dollop onto a palette.
  7. Using the CB-106 #6 Script Liner apply one good coat of CG-964 Kaleidoscope to the Unicorn body and legs.  Make sure and stay between the lines from the silkscreen and not cover the eye and mouth lines.
  8. Apply a wash of SC-11 Blue Yonder over the crystals on the unicorn.  This just helps separate the unicorn from the background a little more since Kaleidoscope has a white background. 
  9. Using the Liner paint one coat on the mane and tail of the unicorn – alternating the following colors:  SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-11 Blue Yonder and SC-75 Orange-A-Peel. 
  10. Paint the horn SC-6 Sunkissed.
  11. Paint the hearts SC-74 Hot Tamale.
  12. Using the Script Liner apply two coats of the following colors to the rainbow: SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-27 Sour Apple and SC-75 Orange-A-Peel.
  13. Mix up the glaze and water to blow bubbles.  The formula is 1 tablespoon of SC-31 The Blues, 2 tablespoons of water and two drops of liquid dish soap.  Mix well.
  14. Using a straw blow into the mixture creating bubbles.  Let the bubbles build up over the top of the cup then take the straw and push onto the canvas.  Apply the bubbles horizontally across the unicorn.
  15. Use the Soft Fan to apply one coat of CG-964 Kaleidoscope to the sides of the canvas.
  16. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 05/06.
