Zombie Platter

Designer: Laura Fraedrich



  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 Soft Fan Brush, apply 3 coats of SW-140 Black Matte to the back sides and the front rim of the platter. Do not glaze the bottom or the foot.
  3. Using the carbon paper and a pencil, transfer the pattern onto the platter.
  4. Using the SG-401 Black Designer Liner, draw over the lines from the pattern. Color in the pupil of the right eye.
  5. Using the SG-403 Designer Liner Red, draw in the zig zags on the shirt, the squiggles between the black lines in the hair, and color in the x on the left eye.
  6. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan, apply three coats of SW-137 Storm Gray to the areas around the zombie, even over the hair. The Designer Liner lines will show through the glazes once fired. Use a CB-106 Script Liner to get into the tight areas. Apply 2 coats to the right eyelid.
  7. Using the CB-106 Script Liner, apply three coats of SW-148 Lime Shower to the face, neck, arms and legs of the zombie.
  8. Using the CB-106 Script Liner, apply three coats of SW-207 Chambray to the shirt and the iris of the right eye.
  9. Using the script liner, apply 2 coats of SW-001 Stoneware Clear to the eyes and the teeth.
  10. Do not stilt or hang over the edge of the kiln shelf.
  11. Fire to cone 5/6.
