Instructions

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

Small Bowl
2. On palette, mix a little water with Peacock Green to thin to a milky consistency.

3. Center bowl on banding wheel. Brace painting arm on something stable at the height of the bowl lip and use the Liner to apply a solid coat of thinned Peacock Green to the upper band on the bowl. Be careful to keep color out of the inside of the bowl.

4. On palette, mix a little water with Lotus Yellow to thin to a milky consistency. Using Fan Glaze, apply to the outside of the bowl below the Peacock Green band. Begin with the area just below the lip and work down to halfway on the outside of the bowl applying three solid coats. Stagger the edges of these coats so a ridge will not be created. After the coats are dry, flip the bowl over and repeat on the lower side and bottom of the bowl.

5. Flip over the bowl right side up and using the circle template guide created for this size bowl, use a pencil to very carefully mark the divided sections onto the bowl on the Lotus Yellow area. Next very lightly sketch vertical lines down the bowl from top to bottom.

6. Again using the banding wheel, center the bowl and using a pencil, add lines or bands beginning about ½ inch below the lip and add three more lines ½ inch apart.

7. Place an amount of Medium Brown on palette. Using a fat brush handle, dip into the Medium Brown and create dots at every intersection of the lines, creating four rows of dots all the way around. Work carefully so the dots stay the same size. Wipe off the brush handle if the color collects and becomes thick. Let dry.

8. Place an amount of Papago Turquoise on palette. Using the same handle application method, repeat the dots on the top and bottom bands – applying the Papago Turquoise dots on top of the Brown dots, keeping them slightly smaller so the Brown still shows. Let dry.

9. Place an amount of Lotus Yellow on palette and repeat the dots on top of the Brown dots on the two center bands, again keeping the Lotus Yellow dots smaller than the Brown.

10. Stilt and fire to cone 04.

11. Using the No. 6 Round, apply two coats of Pure Brilliance to the entire piece.

12. Stilt and fire to cone 06.

Medium Bowl
1. Use a soft tape measure and pencil to mark on the inside of the bowl a ½ inch down from the edge of the bowl, repeating ½ inch marks to the flat portion of the bottom of the bowl.

2. Center the bowl on the banding wheel. Brace your arm on something stable at the height of the bowl lip and add a pencil line on the inside of the bowl at each of the marks creating horizontal lines inside the bowl. Leave bowl on banding wheel.

3. On palette add an amount of Dark Turquoise and use the No. 4 Liner to mix a little water to thin the paint to a milky consistency. Apply a coat to the first band on the inside of the bowl, allowing the color to flow smoothly to entirely coat the band. Be very careful not to let the color run.

4. Repeat creating a wide band of Peacock Green inside the bowl, using Fan Glaze brush and not allowing the color to run.

5. On palette, use the No. 4 Liner to mix a little water with the Samoa Taupe and thin to a milky consistency. Apply three coats of this mixture, creating the narrow band in the bottom of the bowl.

6. Place an amount of Medium Brown on palette, thinning again with a little water using the No. 4 Liner. Paint three coats to the outside band, aligning the color with the Dark Turquoise at the top of the bowl lip.

7. Using the No. 1 Liner, thin Teal with a bit of water and add a very narrow line between the Dark Turquoise and the Peacock Green, working carefully to keep this line narrow.

8. Check to see if the pencil band lines previously marked are still visible. Lightly reapply if needed, being very careful not to scratch the color.

9. Using the circle template guide created for this size bowl, flip over the bowl and very carefully mark the divided sections onto the bowl on the Medium Brown area. Transfer these marks to the inside of the bowl. Next very lightly sketch vertical lines down the inside of the bowl from top to bottom.

10. Place an amount of Medium Brown on palette. Using a fat brush handle, dip into the Medium Brown and create dots at every intersection of the lines on the Dark Turquoise band. Allow the dots to dry thoroughly. Work carefully so the dots stay the same size, wiping off the brush handle if the color collects and becomes thick.

11. Place an amount of White on palette. Using a small end brush handle, create dots at each intersection on the Peacock Green band.

12. Continue with the small brush handle and add dots of Medium Brown to the center bottom area next to the Samoa Taupe band.

13. Place an amount of French Brown on palette and thin slightly with water using the No. 1 Liner. Apply very small narrow French Brown stripes on the Samoa Taupe band.

14. Using the No. 1 Liner, add a very narrow line of Teal vertically through the Medium Brown dots.

15. Stilt and fire to cone 04.

16. Using the No. 6 Round, apply two coats Pure Brilliance to the entire piece.

17. Stilt and fire to cone 06.

Large Bowl
1. Place an amount of Peacock Green on palette and using the Fan Glaze brush to thin color to a milky consistency. Center bowl on the banding wheel. Using the banding wheel and bracing your arm on something stable at the height of the bowl lip, apply a coat of Peacock Green to the center band on the inside bottom of the bowl.

2. Place an amount of Lotus Yellow on palette and use the Fan Glaze brush to thin color to a milky consistency. Apply three coats to the inside portion of the bowl above the Peacock Green band. Be very careful to keep the color off the bottom section.

3. Using the No. 4 Liner, apply three coats Medium Brown to the outer band, aligning the color at the lip with the Lotus Yellow.

4. Flip the bowl over and center again on the banding wheel.

5. Thin a large amount of Peacock Green on palette and use the Fan Glaze brush to apply Peacock Green to the entire outside of the bowl, aligning the color up to the Medium Brown band. Let dry. Do not move bowl.

6. Using pencil, add two horizontal lines about ½ inch from the lip and ½ inch apart. Be careful to not scratch through the color.

7. Using the circle template guide created for this size bowl, very carefully mark the divided sections onto the bowl on the outside Peacock Green area. Next, very lightly sketch vertical lines at each mark from the top to the bottom of the bowl. Be sure these lines stay straight.

8. Place an amount of Medium Brown on palette. Using a fat end brush handle, dip into the Medium Brown and create dots in at each intersection of the lines on the first band. Work carefully so the dots stay the same size, wiping the brush handle off if the color collects and becomes thick. Allow the dots to dry thoroughly.

9. Place an amount of Teal on palette. Using a small end brush handle, add three dots below the brown dots as shown, ending at the second horizontal band line.

10. Use the No. 1 Liner and add Teal lines through each of the brown dots and a very narrow, straight line between the dot rows on the pencil lines.

11. Stilt and fire to witness cone 04.

12. Using the No. 6 Round, apply two coats Pure Brilliance to the entire piece.

13. Stilt and fire to cone 06.

How to create circle template:
1. Using regular copy paper, create a circle template for each bowl prior to painting. Adjust the instructions as needed for each bowl and if necessary, tape two pieces of paper together to make a sheet large enough for the large bowl.

2. Lay piece of paper flat on work surface. Flip the bowl upside down onto paper and use a pencil to draw a circle around the bowl onto the paper.

3. Cut out the circle, leaving about ½ inch of extra paper around the line.

4. Fold the paper in half, aligning the pencil lines so the circle is divided evenly. Fold again in quarters, then again in eighths and sixteenths.

5. Unfold the paper and sketch in the division for the thirty-seconds.

6. To mark the bowl, unfold the paper flat and flip the bowl upside down again aligning with the circle line. Mark the bowl at each of the fold marks and the 32nd marks. Be careful not to scratch through any painted areas.
