INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper over the front of the tray. Trace the pattern using the pencil.
  3. Place the ½” circular stickers onto the large pot (5-10). Place the ¾” stickers onto the small pot (10-15).
  4. Using the Script Liner with CN 022 Bright Saffron/SC 24 Dandelion, apply 2 coats to the bottom 1/3 of the tray. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  5. Using the Script Liner with CN 201 Light Grey/ SC 60 Silver Lining, apply 2 coats to the inside of the large pot. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  6. Using the Script Liner with CN 182 Bright Kiwi/SC 26 Green Thumb, apply 2 coats to the corresponding dark green leaves. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Script Liner with CN 151 Light Blue Spruce/ SC 96 Aqu-ward, apply 2 coats to the corresponding light teal leaves. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Squeeze CN 182 Bright Kiwi/SC 26 Green Thumb and CN 151 Light Blue Spruce/SC 96 Aqu-ward onto the palette to make the third leaf color. Mix 1:4 parts. Using the Script Liner, apply 2 coats to the remaining leaves. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  9. Using the Script Liner with CN 253 Black/SC 15 Tuxedo, apply 2 coats to the pots. Apply over the edges of the dots, but do not completely cover. Completely covering them can cause the adhesive to stick to the tray. Allow glaze to dry between coats. Remove dots as soon as the glaze loses its shine.
  10. Using the Detail Liner with CN 253 Black/SC 15 Tuxedo, outline the leaves, stems and pots. Use the Soft Fan to apply 2 coats to the back of the tray. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  11. Use FN 254 Black Licorice or SG401 Black Designer Liner to make dots on the background. If using Designer Liner, be sure to not apply too thick or the glaze will pop off in firing.
  12. Dip in Pure Brilliance Clear Dipping or NTCLR Dipping
  13. Fire to cone 06.
