Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-001 White to the top of the salad and charger plates.
  3. Section off about 1/3 of both plates and cover that section with paper.
  4. Fill an AC-222 Large Writer Tip bottle with SC-74 Hot Tamale. Drizzle this back and forth in the same direction across both the plates.
  5. Remove the paper and cut out some stars with the paper star punch. Adhere the stars to the blank section using some water or a little bit of FN-001 White. Be sure you know how many stars you apply.
  6. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-019 Dark Blue to that section of both plates.
  7. Remove the stars before the glaze dries.
  8. Using a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-004 Red to the back of the plates.
  9. For the dinner plate, use a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan and apply 3-4 coats of FN-004 Red to the top of the plate and 3 coats of FN-019 Dark Blue to the back of the plate.  Allow to dry.
  10. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05
