Instructions

Stoneware Cupcakes

Creating the cupcakes

  1. Measure out and wedge about 1.5 lbs of white stoneware clay.
  2. Throw a narrow dome and close it.
  3. Use a rib to flatten the sides to create the wrapper.
  4. Apply slip to the top while the wheel is spinning to create a swirl texture.
  5. Use a wire to cut off the wheel and when it’s leather hard use a serrated rib to add texture to the wrapper.
  6. Roll a ball, slip and score to add a cherry on top.
  7. Let dry completely.
  8. Fire to shelf cone 05/04

To hand-build instead of throw replace steps 2 and 3. Connect a long, narrow slab (the wrapper) to another slab that has been formed in a bowl (cupcake top).

Glazing the cupcakes

  1. Apple 2 coats of SW-501 to the top of the cupcake.
  2. On top of that swirl 1-2 coats of any combination of colors from our stoneware gloss line (SW-501 through SW-508).
  3. Apply 3 coats of SW-178 Fool’s Gold to the wrapper.
  4. Apply 3 coats of SW-504 Red Gloss to the cherry.
  5. Wipe the bottom of the piece to make sure it is free of glaze.
  6. Let dry completely.
  7. Fire to shelf cone 5/6.

Stoneware Doughnuts

Creating the doughnuts

  1. Measure out and wedge about 1lb of white stoneware clay.
  2. Throw a closed tube on the wheel.
  3. Use a wire tool to cut the tube off of the wheel and apply slip to create the icing on the top of the doughnut.
  4. Roll out a tiny coil and cut into ½” pieces to create sprinkles and attach them into the slip icing.
  5. Let dry completely.
  6. Fire to shelf cone 05/04

To hand-build instead of throw replace step 2, extrude a tube and attach the top to bottom to create a closed tube.

Glazing the doughnuts

  1. Apply 3 coats of SW-178 Fool’s Gold to the base of the doughnuts.
  2. Apply 2-3 coats of any combination of colors from our stoneware gloss line (SW-501 through SW-508)
  3. Wipe the bottom of the piece to make sure it is free of glaze.
  4. Fire to shelf cone 5/6
