Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Slightly thin S-2101 Crystal Clear with water (3:1). Pour thinned mixture to the inside, turning to coat interior. Pour out excess to drain, keeping inverted until dry.
  3. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, brush 2 coats of FN-001 White to the outside of the pitcher.
  4. With scissors, cut out the pattern of the eagle.
  5. Wet the paper eagle or the glaze on the pitcher with water. Stick the eagle to the pitcher, pat with a paper towel to remove the excess water, sealing the paper "mask" pattern to the pitcher.
  6. Mark a pencil line about 5" from the bottom of the pitcher in a few spaces around the shape. Draw a line to connect.
  7. Tape the edge under the line.
  8. Punch out stars for the star area of the flag motif, and the handle.
  9. Wet the paper stars with water then stick to the area above the tape line. Keep in rows to mimic a flag.
  10. Use the 2" foam roller and roll 2 coats of SC-12 Moody Blue to the star area. Roll in different directions for a worm, rustic look.
  11. Remove the paper stars.
  12. Tape the white stripes with 3/4 inch tape.
  13. Roll over the striped area in the same manner with SC-74 Hot Tamale. 2 coats.
  14. Remove the tape and the paper eagle.
  15. On a palette, with a palette knife, thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter. Place the eagle screen from DSS-0109 Large Birds in the eagle space on the pitcher. Rub the thickened mixture over the screen, remove and wash gently.
  16. When the blue and red glaze is dry, sand the hard edges with a green scotch pad or something abrasive for a rustic appearance.
  17. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, brush 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the exterior of the pitcher. OR Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze
  18. Fire to cone 05/06.
