Storage: If you anticipate using Designer Liner frequently, you may want to store the bottle with the metal tip left on the bottle. Place the metal straight pin (provided) into the metal writer tip as this will help keep the writer tip free from clogging. An alternative storage method is to remove the metal writer tip and reattach the white plastic tip to the screw cap. You will want to soak the metal writer tip in warm water to remove any traces of the designer liner from the nozzle. In either case it is important to minimize air exposure to Designer Liner. Always store at room temperature.

Designer Liner has been formulated to mature at cone 06/05. However most will maintain their color at higher temperatures. Their performance at cone 6 is noted on each individual product label. We recommend testing on your clay body and in your kiln prior to use.

Remove the white cap then gently puncture plastic tip with the metal writer tip.

After placing the metal tip onto the bottle cap, push the included pin through the small ziptop bag and seal (this makes it easier to keep track of the pin). Turn the bag into a flag!

Keep the pin in the metal writer tip when not in use.

Designer Liner is clay based. As such, it is the nature to dry quickly, which can promote clogging in the narrow passages of the metal and or plastic tips.

Clear or transparent glazing is necessary for gloss finish. Designer Liner will fire matte when no glaze is applied over top.

Design work could be distorted when applied on top of moving glazes. Such as, Elements™, Crystal or Stoneware glazes.

Wipe tip periodically on a damp sponge to keep clean.

Keep the metal pin to unclog the tip and keep the metal writer tip free from debris.

If Designer Liner begins to dry in the bottle you can add a few drops of water to reconstitute Designer Liner. Stir and test for proper viscosity. Add water in small amounts to avoid over-thinning the Designer Liner.

Place some Designer Liner on a tile and use a CB-110 #10/0 Liner Brush for extra fine outlining or detailing.

Designer Liner is not a dimensional product. If applied too thick or heavy, Designer Liner will crack and possibly pop off.

The 1.25 oz. squeeze bottle fits nicely in the hand, permitting complete control and refinement for outlining, drawing, and detailing. Works great with Fundamental Underglazes!
