Catching Harmony Plates

Catch a little creativity with the Duncan® Oh Four™ Harmony Plates! Pair fishnet with bright Concepts® Underglazes for a look that’s quite complementary.

Instructions

  1. Wipe plates with dampened sponge to remove bisque dust.
  2. Use pencil to trace pattern onto clear contact paper. Cut out two.
  3. Place cutout shape on concave edge of plates as shown.
  4. Place netting pieces on newspaper and lightly spray with Crystal Clear Tacky Spray.
  5. Carefully lay netting sticky side down on each plate, making sure netting sticks to plate.
  6. Pour approximately 1/3 cup of Bright Briarwood into clean, empty paper cup. Add a little less than 1/3 cup of water to underglaze and mix. Note: Mixture should be a milky consistency.
  7. Pour watered-down color into spray bottle, attach spray top and shake. Test spray on paper towels to check for an even mist.
