Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-92 Cafè Olè to the MB-1224 Reindeer Ornament.
  3. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-46 Rawhide to the antlers. Apply 2 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the nose.
  4. With a palette knife and a palette, thicken S-2101 Crystal Clear with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter. Add blue food coloring to tint the glaze.
  5. Using the pine cone from DSS-0106 Winter/Holiday (grain side up), take the tinted and thickened S-2101 Crystal Clear mixture and rub it through the screen with your finger. Screen the pine cones to the flat section of the reindeer. (For color placement only.)
  6. Using only the scarf from the snowman from DSS-0106 Winter/Holiday, rub the tinted and thickened S-2101 Crystal Clear mixture through the screen with your finger to the front of MB-1169 Snowman Ornament. (For color placement only.) Rinse the screen and lay flat to dry. 
    • Note: Review the Designer Silkscreen Instructions for further information and proper cleaning instructions.
