Retro Santa Napkin Holder

For best results, please read all instructions before beginning project. Refer to photo for color and design placement.


Before you begin, wipe a damp sponge over entire bisque to remove dust and contaminants.

1. Paint 1 thick coat of Dark Taupe all over the outside of the napkin holder until no white is showing.
2. When the color has lost its shine, take a slightly damp sponge and gently wipe the color off the pottery. You want to wipe lightly, removing the color from just the raised parts of the texture. This will leave the color in just the cracks, giving it an antiqued look. For best results, continually rinse your sponge in your water bowl while you wipe, as needed, and squeeze out the water well so it doesn’t drip onto your pottery.
3. Paint 2 washy coats of Really White on the eyebrows, hair, beard, and eyes.
4. Paint 2 washy coats of Bright Blush on the face, lip, and hand.
5. Paint 3 coats of Paprika Red on the hat.
6. Paint 3 coats of Paprika Red and Bright Wintergreen on the candy cane.
7. Paint 2 coats of Black on the eyes.
8. Paint 2 washy coats of Bright Wintergreen on the inside of the holder.
9. With the end of the paint brush handle, add Really White dots for eye shine on the right side of each eye.
10. Clear glaze, then stilt and fire to cone 06.
