Happy Santa Plate

Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

  2. Locate the Santa and holly on DSS-0162 Holiday Icons screen. Draw an outline around them in permanent marker. Cut them out with excess screen around the edges.

  3. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more silkscreen medium or glaze.

  4. Place the Santa in the center of the plate, shiny side down. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium and gently rub in circles staring in the center and working outward. Next, place the holly on the plate and repeat.

  5. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-11 Blue Yonder and SC-45 My Blue Heaven onto the palette. Take the sponge and dip it into the glaze. Sponge the background, alternating between the 2 colors.

  6. Using the Script Liner with SC-26 Green Thumb and SC-98 Slime Time, apply 2 coats to the holly leaves, Santa pants and gloves. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  7. Using the Script Liner with SC-74 Hot Tamale, apply 2 coats to the berries, Santa hat and coat. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  8. Using the Detail Liner with SC-6 Sunkissed, apply 2 coats to belt. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  9. Using the Detail Liner with SC-20 Cashew Later, apply 2 coats to Santa’s face. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

     

  10. Using the Script Liner and Soft Fan with SG-704 Peppermint, apply 1 coat over the background.

  11. Using the Script Liner with S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze, apply 1 coat over the screened images. Use the Soft Fan to apply 2 coats to the back. Or dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze.
