Instructions

Large Jar

  1. Clean the seams of the ware using a Clean Up Tool. Sand any other imperfections using the Green Grit Cloth. Wipe down the piece using a moistened Synthetic Sponge to remove any dust from the ware. Check the inside for any debris as well.

  2. Use either CB-406 Pointed Round or CB-604 Soft Fan to apply 3 smooth and even coats of the following Fundemental Under Glazes to the noted areas.
    UG-93 Wild Violet to Top portion of finial, middle section of the vase.
    UG-82 Tucson Turquoise to the bead trim on middle of lid and two smaller bead trim on pedestal.
    UG-94 Pansy Purple to the lower portion of lid, large bead trim on pedestal and lower section of the base.

  3. On a tile covered with aluminum foil, pour out some AC-302 Wax Resist. Dip the flat surface of a Sea Wool sponge into the wax. You may want to make a practice print to get the feel of veiling the wax onto paper first to avoid a mishap when working on the ware. “Print” one coat of the wax resist onto the bowl of the jar. Keep the pattern even and lacey. Rotate the sponge when printing to avoid a repeated pattern. Wash sponge with cool water and liquid detergent immediately after use. Let Dry.

  4. Apply 2 coats of NT-BR Clear One Brushing using CB-604 Soft Fan over the wax resist areas on the vase, pedestal base and lower lid portion. Do not paint the foot of the base and lid. The piece cannot be stilted during firing.

  5. Fire to Shelf Cone 04. Do not stilt the pieces and make sure no glaze is on the feet of the ware before firing.

  6. Thin some FN-36 Grape in a plastic cup. Pour the thinned glaze into the lid and jar. Working quickly, rotate the piece to cover the inside. Pour out excess glaze and invert to dry. Wipe off any excess glaze from the lip and top.

  7. Apply 2 coats of NT-BR Clear One Brushing to the finial and bead trims on the lid and jar. Glaze the underside of base/foot.

  8. Stilt and Fire to Shelf Cone 05-06.

  9. Optional Step. Apply one thin coat of Mother of Pearl to the High-Low areas of the jar lid, bowl and base using a brush reserved for the Luster. Clean brush in Luster Essence. Stilt and Fire to Shelf Cone 020.
