Picture of Graceful Gecko

Graceful Gecko

This web-footed wall climber looks right at home on the Duncan® Oh Four® Wide Tribal Vase thanks to the natural looks of Granite Stone® textured applications.


1.Wipe ware with damp sponge to remove bisque dust.

2.Using the Fan Glaze brush, apply two flowing coats of Quartz to the entire vase. Allow the color to dry thoroughly after each coat.

3.Place pattern over graphite paper and position onto vase. Use pencil to carefully trace over the gecko pattern, transferring the design onto vase. Be careful not to smear the graphite to the unpainted areas.

4.Using the Liner, apply two flowing coats of Sand onto the gecko design. Let dry after each coat.

5.These are self-sealing colors, so sealer is not needed.
