Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. For the evergreen tree MB-1377 Bottle Cap Ornament, use AC-213 Large Sponge on a Stick and pounce 1 even coat of SC-30 Blue Dawn onto the surface.
  3. With a palette knife and palette, mix SC-36 Irish Luck and AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter.
  4. Using DSS-0110 Botantical - Trees & Grass, with the grain side up, align the evergreen tree overtop the SC-30 Blue Dawn surface.
  5. With your finger, rub the thickened SC-36 Irish Luck mix over the screen.
  6. Using CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner (the handle end of the brush works too), make small dots onto the screened evergreen tree with SC-74 Hot Tamale and SC-24 Dandelion.
    • Tip: The various colors of Designer Liners work great also.
  7. For the stylized tree MB-1377 Bottle Cap Ornament, using a palette knife and palette, mix S-2101 Crystal Clear with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter. Add a small amount of food coloring to tint mixture. (This is for color placement only.)
  8. Using DSS-0116 Stylized, with the grain side up, alight the stylized tree on the surface of MB-1377 Bottle Cap Ornament.
  9. With your finger, rub the thickened and tinted S-2101 Crystal Clear mixture over DSS-0116 Stylized to screen the stylized tree.
