Harvest and Harmony

Harvest your creativity for the perfect balance of style and function. Decorate Duncan® Oh Four™ Harmony Ware Dinner Plates in a bounty of rich color from Cover-Coat® Opaque Underglazes and E-Z Stroke™ Translucent Underglazes for home or table décor that’ll never go out of style.

Instructions

  1. Lightly wipe ware with damp sponge to remove any bisque dust.
  2. Pour a puddle of Neon Green on a piece of foil. Using the Fan Glaze brush, apply three flowing coats to each plate, allowing the color to dry between coats.
  3. Place clay carbon paper on surface of each plate, then place pattern over the top and trace with pen to transfer design onto each plate.
  4. Pour puddles of each E-Z Stroke™ color onto a piece of foil. Apply each color to the designated areas as follows, using the No. 1 Liner and No. 4 or No. 6 Rounds:

· Ivy Green: outline each grape, fill in the leaf with strokes from outer edge toward center veins; add any additional wash on grapes to strengthen color once other colors have been applied
· Roasted Chestnut: stems
· Mesa Clay: add highlights to each grape and wash in background
· Grass Green: shade lower edges of each grape and shade around leaf veins
· Ivy Green: wash on each grape around highlight
· Roasted Chestnut: darken wash in background
· Cobalt Jet Black: thin outline around each grape, stems and leaf; wash in deepest corners and around darker side of grape cluster

  1. Check the piece over and add any needed color to deepen contrast between grapes, leaves and background.
