Throw the vase on a potters wheel using Icelia porcelain.
Dry until soft leather hard, then gently flatten the face of the vase while applying counter pressure on the back side.
Spray on a gradated tone of green underglaze.
Scratch (sgraffito) the portrait through the underglaze back down to the porcelain with a stylus and wire brush.
Underglaze the details.
Dry until bone dry.
Bisque fire.
Apply zinc-free clear glaze
Final fire at cone 6.
