Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of FN-001 White to the front of the tile.
  3. Cut out the negative space from the fish pattern taking out the fish and leaving the surrounding areas.
  4. Re-wet the tile with glaze or water, and place the paper stencil into the wet surface, use a paper towel to flatten the paper and remove excess water.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SC-88 TuTu Tango over the fish area.  Allow to become semi-dry: when the glaze loses its shine.
  6. Pour some SG-501 Sculpting Medium into the plastic bottle with the metal tip.  Practice making loopy lines on paper first, then start the line off the fish on the paper, quickly making loopy lines over the fish.
  7. Remove the paper.
  8. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SC-77 Glow Worm to the background, work in sections, brushing another coat of SC-77 Glow Worm and place the eyelash yarn into the wet glaze, brush more SC-77 Glow Worm over the yarn to get it imbedded into the glaze.
  9. Wait until the shine leaves the SC-77 Glo Worm then apply 2 coats of SC-12 Moody Blue.
  10. Apply 1 thin coat of CG-722 Seawind with crystals over the SC-12 Moody Blue.
  11. Pull off the yarn when the shine leaves the glaze.
  12. Paint an eye in with SC-16 Cotton Tail, with a SC-15 Tuxedo pupil, outline with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  13. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
