Neon Flower Plate

As cheerful and inviting as a bright tablecloth spread in an open meadow, this delightful design is super-simple to do. Masking tape and adhesive shelf paper are the secrets behind the crisp edges of this floral/plaid design painted in Concepts Underglazes and highlighted in French Dimensions.

Instructions

1. Clean greenware. Fire to shelf cone 04.

2. Remove dust and condition ware, using dampened sponge.

3. Using the ¼” masking tape, section off a 4” square in center of plate pressing down to eliminate gaps. Refer to photo for placement.
