Instructions:
  1. Wipe ware with damp sponge to remove bisque dust.
  2. Shake bottle of Pure Brilliance® well. Pour glaze into empty container to approximately a quarter full. Add a little water and thin to a milky consistency. Pour inside pitcher and roll around to coat inside. Pour out remaining back into container. Let dry.
  3. From pattern, trace fish on tracing paper. Position on pitcher and place clay carbon paper between tracing paper and pitcher. Trace over lines to transfer image. Add as many fish as desired.
  4. Pour a dime-size puddle of Light Blue on palette. Dilute color to a light watery blue. Using sponge, pounce lightly onto entire pitcher, going around outlines of fish and leaving some white speckled areas. Let dry.
  5. Trace plant life on tracing paper. Using clay carbon paper, transfer to bottom area of pitcher.
  6. Using No. 10 Round, roughly brush a thin wash of Grass Green in the area of the green foliage. Repeat step with Neon Orange, Coral Red and Violet in the remaining bushes. For the Coral colored plant, add less water to the paint for a truer coral color. Let dry.
  7. Using No.10 Round, dip into a small puddle of Royal Blue Green and brush a wash above the foliage and blend upward into the lightly sponged blue sea. This darker separation will create a depth in the water and bring out the foliage.
  8. Add a tiny touch of Black to Red Coral just to darken a bit. Using No. 6 Round and blend into coral to create the shadowed portions of plant. Refer to photo.
  9. Pour some White onto palette and mix in a small amount of Red Coral. Use No. 6 Round to dab along tops of clusters to highlight tops of plant.
  10. Repeat with green vegetation by adding a little Black to Grass Green to darken and create dark recessed areas. Mix a small amount of Grass Green to White and dab along tops of clusters just like with the coral plants.
  11. Repeat steps of shadowing and highlighting with the Violet plants.
  12. Use No. 4 Liner brush and load into the green/black mixture; brush some long, flowing leaves moving with the water. Refer to photo.
  13. Use No. 4 Liner to paint Cobalt Jet Black and Neon Yellow on Angelfish. Paint in eyes and detail with a little Cobalt Jet Black mixed in the Neon Orange.
  14. Paint big fish using a wash of Neon Orange. Shade with a wash of Neon Orange mixed with a small amount of Cobalt Jet Black. Refer to photo. Paint eye, detail fins and add spots using the No. 1 Liner in a mixture of the Neon Orange and Cobalt Jet Black. Refer to photo. Let dry.
  15. Pour puddle of Pure Brilliance® on clean palette. Gently sponge over surface being careful to not move the paint. Let dry. Repeat with a second coat. Let dry.
  16. Stilt in kiln and fire to witness cone 06.
