More Details

Preparation: (see note below)

3. When whitish coating appears, lightly polish using a dry sponge

Pinstriping:
1. Apply one-quarter inch tape around top and bottom edges of the mug
2. Use three different sizes of tape to create geometric patterns
3. When patterning is complete, use fingers to ensure good adhesion of all tapes, paying closest attention to the edges

Painting:
1. Apply 3 coats of a different color of Concepts to each section of the design, allowing to dry fully between coats
2. Remove tape while third coat is still damp
3. When completely dry sponge outside with clear glaze, overlapping inside a little to ensure full glaze coverage; finish with brushed coat of clear glaze on outside and fire to cone 06.

NOTE: if you prefer a white background and/or inside of mug these preparation steps can be ignored according to your choice.

CME would like to thank Connie Wawruck-Hemmett for her contribution of this project for the pleasure of ceramists world wide.
