Rustic Blooms Medallion Bowl
Combine Duncan® French Dimensions® with luxurious color from Duncan® Designer Glazes® for a piece that stands out with style. Earthy shades and tons of texture make this bowl a beautiful work of art.
1. Wipe ware with damp sponge to remove bisque dust.
2. Using a pencil and a soft tape measure, measure and mark the bowl into 16 equal sections around the rim.
3. Use the tape measure to stretch from one mark on the rim to the opposite mark on the other side of the rim and lightly trace along the line from point to point. Continue this process, dividing the bowl into pie shapes. This will help with the even placement of each section as shown in the photo.
4. Next mark bands around the inside of the bowl to create the divisions for each layer of petals. Finish the medallion pattern by lightly sketching in the petal shapes and some design details. Use a soft towel to lightly clean the inside of the bowl of any excess pencil markings or dust.
5. Using the bamboo skewers, thoroughly mix each of the French Dimensions colors to ensure that the color is smooth and even throughout the bottle. Replace the tip and cap and shake the product down to the tip of the bottle.
6. Using the photo as inspiration, begin in the center with each French Dimensions color as shown and use the product to outline the pencil lines to create the entire dimensional pattern. Work from the center of the bowl out and continue one row all around until complete before moving on to the next row of petals and details. Check the pattern carefully that everything is neat and that all the details and design work has been added to the pattern. Feel free to add as many details as desired to embellish the design. Allow the French Dimensions to dry thoroughly.
7. Before beginning to glaze, shake and mix each of the Designer Glazes thoroughly to the proper consistency. Thin with a small amount of water if needed to allow for a nice smooth, flowing coat of each color.
8. Using the No. 6 Round or the Fan Glaze brush as needed, for the first coat, be sure that the glaze is a slightly thinner consistency so that the glaze will flow right up to and over the French Dimensions for good adhesion to the dimensional product. Continue to apply three coats to each section as shown, working the glaze up next to and over the French Dimensions as needed for each petal and detail. Allow each coat of glaze to dry thoroughly. Follow color placement as shown in the photo.
9. Apply three flowing coats of Carbon Chiffon to the backside of the bowl, allowing each coat to dry thoroughly.
10. Check the piece carefully for any misplaced color and touch up as needed.
11. Stilt the bowl and fire to witness cone 06. Use a stilt stone to remove the stilt marks after firing.
