Embellish any ceramic piece by adding an Embellie! Just use French Dimensions (see related products) or a glaze you're already using to bond Embellies to an existing ceramic piece. This Letter V Embellie bisque measures 1.5" x 1.5" x 0.15". Sold individually or in case lots of 12.
Embellie Fusing — Pre-Firing:
- Brush any glaze onto the backside of an Embellie. Squeeze a line of French
Dimensions around the outer perimeter of the underside of the bisque
embellishment, but not exactly at the edge; this will help keep French
Dimensions from rising up over the sides of embellishment when pressed
onto ware. Apply liberally in the center areas. While French Dimensions
glaze is wet, press embellishment onto desired area of ware, holding it for
approximately 5 seconds until a hold is achieved. Tip: Embellies can be
adhered to ware without the use of French Dimensions, however,
we recommend adhering with French Dimensions for added
strength. Note: You may add embellishments to ware that has already been
glazed but has not yet been fired.
- Brush 2 to 3 coats of clear glaze over entire piece or dip in clear dipping
glaze if an underglaze was used. Tip: While glaze must be applied over
underglazes for the Embellies to fuse, if 3 coats of Duncan Concepts
Underglazes are applied to the base piece and Embellie, there
is no need to use clear glaze. If Duncan E-Z Stroke Translucent
Underglazes or Cover-Coat Opaque Underglazes were used, and a
matte, unglazed finish is desired, Embelllies can be adhered using
French Dimensions without the aid of a glaze. Let dry completely.
- Make sure ware is perfectly flat on stilt and kiln shelf, as the glaze will melt
during firing and may cause embellishment to shift if not level.
- Fire to cone 06.
*For best results, it is recommended to fuse bisque embellishments to flat
and horizontal bisque ware. Attaching embellishments on surfaces that are
slanted or angled is recommended for post-firing, as glaze will melt during
firing and cause the embellishment to slide.
Embellie Fusing — Post-Firing:
- To attach an Embellie to a non-horizontal surface, decorate as desired with
glaze or underglaze. If an underglaze was used, brush on 2-3 coats of clear
glaze or dip in clear dipping glaze and fire the Embellie separate from the
base piece. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
- Once fired, squeeze a line of Aleenes 7800 Adhesive around the outer
perimeter of the underside of the bisque embellishment, but not exactly
at the edge; this will help keep the glue from rising up over the sides of
embellishment when pressed onto ware. Apply liberally in the center
areas. Attach to horizontal or vertical non-food-bearing bisque ware for
approximately 5 seconds until a hold is achieved. Let dry completely.
