Project Info


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 Coats of FN-001 White to the outside of the coaster holder and to the knob and center section of the individual coasters.
  3. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 3 Coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the trim edge of the coasters, back and the lid of the coaster holder.
  4. Cut sections of the napkins to fit the holder and the coasters.
  5. So to do this project, apply the painted napkin to the coasters or holder before they are all painted.
  6. Painting the napkin. With the AC-222 Medium Writer Tip, put plastic & metal tip on a 2 oz. bottle of SC-74 Hot Tamale then use to outline the stems of the berries and make dots for the berries.
  7. Using s CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush the leaves on the napkin with SC-27 Sour Apple leaving some space on the leaves to brush in SC-36 Irish Luck, apply heavily. Blend the colors where they meet.
  8. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, brush in the leaf stems with SC-36 Irish Luck heavily on the napkin.
  9. Apply the painted napkin to the coaster holder or the coasters after the Glaze on the napkin has started to dry. A good time to apply the napkin to the glazed surface is when the Glaze starts to skin up not when it is bone dry.
  10. After applying the napkin to the glazed surface, use a damp Sponge to pat the napkin surface, this way any Glaze that has dried will transfer from the napkin and stay on the surface.
  11. Remove the napkin.
  12. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, lightly outline the leaves and stems with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  13. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 Coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the inside of the coaster holder. Allow to dry.
  14. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
  15. Use cork tabs on the bottoms of the coasters.
