  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CG-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of UG-207 Flame Red to the inside of the dish. Allow to dry.
  3. With a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper transfer the image to the dish.
  4. Using SA-003 White Accents trace the transferred design.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-009 Black to the back of the dish.
  6. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of CC-101 Transparent Crackle on top on the underglaze. Be sure not to overlap the underglaze with the FN-009 Black because it will make a blue tint once it is fired. Let dry completely.
  7. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
  8. Once fired, wait a day or two then put a few drops on water in some SS-138 Flat black. Apply over the crackle glaze with a sponge and wipe away. This should leave a little black in all the cracks to make them more visible.
