Simple Snowman Plate

Instructions

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

  2. Using the Soft Fan with FN-001 White, apply 2 coats to the front of the plate. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  3. Cut out the 1st snowman pattern. Use the sponge to wet the bottom of the pattern and place in the center of the plate. Sponge the edges to make sure they stick down.

  4. Using the Soft Fan with FN-001 White, apply 1 coat to the front of the plate. Go over the sides of the pattern.

  5. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-11 Blue Yonder and SC-45 My Blue Heaven onto the palette. Dip the sponge in the glaze and sponge over the front of the plate. Repeat until the front is covered. Peel off the pattern before the glaze has completely dried.

  6. Cut out the 2nd snowman pattern. Put back over where the 1st pattern was placed. Take the pencil and trace over the details of the pattern. Press hard enough to make an indent in the glaze.

  7. Using the Script Liner with SC-16 Cotton Tail, apply 1 coat over the head and body. Shade around the edges with SC-60 Silver Lining.

  8. Using the Script Liner with SC-11 Blue Yonder, apply 3 coats to the pompom and rim of the hat. Apply 3 coats to the scarf. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  9. Using the Script Liner with SC-76 Cara-Bein Blue, apply 3 coats to the top of the hat and the bottom of the scarf. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  10. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-2 Melon-Choly onto the palette. Dip the sponge in the glaze and dab below the eyes.

  11. Using the Script Liner with SC-23 Jack O’ Lantern, apply 2 coats to the nose. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  12. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, outline the details on the snowman and make stick arms. Apply 2 coats to the eyes.

  13. Using the Detail Liner with SC-16 Cotton Tail, make 2 dots in each eye.

  14. Using the Soft Fan with SC-11 Blue Yonder, apply 3 coats to the back of the plate. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
