Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper trace on the design or sketch on your own.
  3. For the placement of the primary colors: Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-6 Sunkissed, on the far left tail feather on the bird skip one tail feather, apply 3 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale on the center of the birds tail feather. Skip one tail feather to the right of the SC-74 Hot Tamale tail feather and apply 3 coats of SC-12 Moody Blue. So now every other tail feather should have a primary color on them.
  4. For the feather between the primary colors, the colors will be mixed to create these colors.  Orange – mix SC-74 Hot Tamale with some SC-6 Sunkissed. Purple - mix SC-74 Hot Tamale and SC-12 Moody Blue. Green - mix SC-6 Sunkissed and SC-12 Moody Blue.  Visually the wet glaze will mimic the fired color, so mix according.
  5. For the foreground, stipple the blue side with SC-12 Moody Blue and SC-6 Sunkissed, and the red side with SC-74 Hot Tamale, and SC-6 Sunkissed.
  6. The body of the peacock is the mix of SC-74 Hot Tamale, SC-12 Moody Blue and SC-16 Cotton Tail.
