Project Info

Instructions


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place FN-227 Celery into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water).  It should be the consistency of a coffee cream.  Pour this into the vase and roll around to completely coat the interior of the vase.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep vase inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-045 Taupe to the outside of the vase. Allow to dry.
  4. Apply Stencil Adhesive to the back of the Fern Stencil following instructions on the adhesive packaging.
  5. Place the stencil onto the vase. Make sure all the edges are securely down on the vase.
  6. Using a rubber squeegee or a AB-834 ¾” Basecoat Brush, apply 2 coats of SG-501 Sculpting Medium over the stencil. Remove any excess glaze from the stencil.
  7. Using a AB-834 ¾” Basecoat Brush, apply 1-2 coats of FN-227 Celery on to the fern design. Remove the stencil after the second coat of FN-227 Celery so the Sculpting Medium does not chip (when removing the stencil, make sure to lift straight up, not on an angle). Allow to dry.
  8. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 05/06.
