Yarn Quirky Frog

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. 
  2. Using the Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SC-93 Honeydew List to the breast of the frog.
  3. Using the same brush, apply 1 coat of SC-8 Just Froggy to the rest of the frog, omitting the eyes.
  4. Have the jute cut and ready to use.
  5. Using the Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of the same colors onto the frog.
  6. Press the jute into the wet glaze. Create any design or pattern you want with the jute.
  7. Brush a coat of the same color over the jute to seal the fiber onto the bisque. This will keep the next color from seeping under the jute. Allow the color to set.
  8. Use the soft fan brush to apply 2 coats of SC-98 Slime Time over the frog EXCEPT the belly.
  9. Paint the belly with 2 coats of SC-93 Honeydew List. Add in a little SC-8 Just Froggy around the edges to deepen the color.
  10. Allow to dry until the shine leaves the glaze, then remove the jute. NOTE: Do not let the glaze completely dry as it will chip when removing the jute.
  11. Add water to the Script Liner and thin down the SC-36 Irish Luck to add a little shading to the sections of the frog’s body.
  12. Brush a watered down coat of SC-98 Slime Time over the belly to deepen the jute detail.
  13. Remove any glaze from the eyes.
  14. Apply 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail using the Script Liner and the Detail Liner.
  15. Using the Detail Liner paint the pupil with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  16. Using the Soft Fan Brush apply 2-3 good coats of FN-009 Black to the inside of the container. Allow to dry.
  17. Dip into NT-CLR.
  18. Stilt and fire to cone 05/06.
