Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. In the plastic bottle of the AC-222 Medium Writer Tip, put SC-12 Moody Blue 2 parts and 1 part water mix well. Put the plastic applicator tip on the bottle. You do not need the metal tip.
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 heavy coats of FN-001 White to the tile, one after another.
  4. Place the tile on the floor (over some newspaper) then drip the thinned SC-12 Moody Blue onto the tile, the drops of glaze should spatter.
  5. Allow to dry.
  6. Cut out the fish from the pattern, we will be using the negative of the fish.
  7. Slightly wet the tile, without over brushing you don’t want to disturb the spatter. Then place the paper on the tile, press with a paper towel.
  8. Remove any real dark blue spatter from the fish shape with a damp sponge, as it will show.
  9. Using a CB-604 #$ Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SC-88 Tu Tu Tango to the  fish, fading into SC-24 Dandelion on the edges of the fish and fins.
  10. Using a CB-106 #4 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-12 Moody Blue to the eye. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply SG-401 Black Designer Liner to the pupil.
  11. When dry, outline and detail the fish with SG-401 Black Designer Liner. Allow to dry.
  12. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the top of the tile.  Allow to dry.
  13. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
