INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a soft fan brush, apply 2 coats of FN-001 White to the bottom ¾ of the outside of the piece and apply 3 coats or roll the glaze to coat the inside.
  3. Use a pencil or carbon paper to apply your desired plant design. We used a pencil to draw on some monstera leaves.
  4. Apply 1 coat of AC-302 Wax resist to your design.
  5. Adhere masking tape to section off part 2/4 and ¾. Creating a large middle section. Also adhere 2 pieces to the center of the handle.

  7. Use a script liner to apply 2 coats of SC-88 Tu Tu Tango to create the aloe planter, top band, and handle.
  8. Draw on aloe leaves with a pencil and apply wax resist to the lines as well as over the planter.
  9. Use a soft fan brush to apply 3 coats of CN302 Bright Caribbean to the bottom section and use a script liner to apply 3 coats to the aloe leaves. Be sure to wipe off glaze build up from the wax resist.
  10. Use a fan brush to apply 3 coats of CN293 Dark Purple to the top section of the vase and handle.
  11. Remove all of the masking tape.
  12. Use a pencil to draw where the vines will go.
