- MB-1163 Rectangle Tray
- EL-119 Burnished Steel
- EL-120 Black Ice
- EL-121 Copper Adventurine
- EL-122 Malachite
- CB-425 Oval Mop
- CB-604 #4 Soft Fan
- BT-910 Synthetic Sponges
- AC-220 Detailer Bottle
- Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
- Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-004 Black to the front and back of the tray.
- Once shine is gone, apply 2 sloppy coats of EL-122 Malachite with the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan to the center rectangular portion of the tray. This does not need to be precise, just eyeball it (see the picture).
- While waiting for the center portion of the tray to dry, dip a CB-425 Oval Mop Brush into EL-121 Copper Adventurine, covering the bristles with glaze. Touch the side of the brush to the tray around the edge, depositing a ‘blob’ of color. Repeat around the rim of the tray, re-coating the brush each time. Each blob will be one thick coat of El-121 Copper Adventurine. While that dries, move to the next step.
- Pour some EL-120 Black Ice into the AC-220 Detailer Bottle. Use the bottle to drop puddles of EL-120 Black Ice onto the center of the tray, creating the ‘raindrops’.
- Once the Copper Adventurine blobs on the outer edge lose their shine, dip the CB-425 Oval Mop Brush into the EL-119 Burnished Steel and press the bristles over the outer half of the EL-121 Copper Adventurine blobs, as shown in the picture.
- Do not apply Clear Glaze.
- Stilt and fire to shelf cone 05/06.
Tips: For a fee-based class, add on three small dishes and market as a set. These can be bisque, painted to coordinate with the tray (have attendees paint dishes while waiting for other areas to dry).
