Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque MB-1508 Vintage Truck.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Apply one coat of AC-302 Wax Resist  top the tire and door handles
  3. Apply three coat of RK-104 Red to the body of the truck.
  4. Apply three coats of RK-105 Copper Penny to the bumper, wheels, and windows.
  5. Apply three coats of RK-107 Oil Slick to the truck bed and the bottom of the truck.
  6. Apply RK-107 Oil Slick to the top of the truck, the hood, fenders, and other places you would like to accumulate with rust. With this step, gradually decrease the area covered with glaze to mimic a fading effect - thicker in the middle and thinner on the edges. 
  7. Fire your piece in a raku kiln that is outside to about 1890 degrees F or until the glazes are all shiny.
  8. Use a metal can with a lid that a little larger than your piece line it with newspaper.
  9. Use raku tongs and protective raku clothing. Pull your piece out of the kiln and place it gentle in the can with the newspaper, allow the paper to catch on fire and cover with the lid. (Do not take the lid off the can until your piece has cooled completely).
  10. When your piece has cooled clean your piece as it comes out of the can with a stiff brush or green kitchen scrubby to lean off the carbon.
  11. Have fun and use caution when you Raku.
