You’ll love this fun and fast bubbles technique for applying color and patterns to the Duncan®Oh Four® Simplicity Salad Plate. Use different Concepts® colors and a tiny bit of dishwashing soap to create an abstract look that’s sure to get compliments.


  1. Wipe ware with damp sponge to remove bisque dust.
  2. Fill each plastic container with a different Concepts® paint color.
  3. Add water to thin the color to a milk-like consistency.
  4. Add one drop of liquid dish soap to each container with paint. Mix together.
  5. Use drinking straw to blow air into the paint/soap mixture to create bubbles.
  6. Lower the outside of your bisque onto the bubbles. The bubbles will pop right on the ware, creating delicate bubble-shaped circles of color. Repeat as many times as you need to get the pattern coverage you want. Let dry.
  7. Repeat these steps for each color you want on your bisque. Let dry.
  8. Pour Pure Brilliance into a clean small plastic container. Use Fan Glaze brush to lightly brush on three coats Pure Brilliance. Let dry after each coat.
  9. Let dry and fire to witness cone 06.
