  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Trace a section of the Bloom Stencil on the tile leaving space for the bees. Mark the stencil and the bisque for ease of placement.
  3. Brush for the Sassy Orange flower 2 coats of FN-009 Black, let dry (otherwise the stencil will pull off the glaze).  Apply a thin third coat of FN-009 Black, while wet apply the stecnil into the wet glaze.  Make sure to close gaps in the edges by rubbing the damp glaze into the gaps.
  4. Apply one coat of SC-16 Cotton Tail, to block out the Black Glaze, to the stencil with CB-604 Soft Fan.
  5. Apply two coats of CG-753 Sassy Orange to the flower stencil, when the gloss leaves the second coat remove the stencil.
  6. Wipe off the excess black glaze that maybe around the flower.
  7. For a whiter background apply two coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail. Let Dry.
  8. Thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter.  Place the bee screen with the shiny side down on the tile, rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen, you can continue to reuse the screen without washing as long as you continue without stopping.
  9. Brush SC-97 Cant-elope into the stripes of the bee one coat.
  10. If Cotton Tail was not used on the background, it would need two coats of S-2101 Clear.
  11. For the blue flower FN-019 Dark Blue is used under CG-718 Blue Caprice.
  12. Fire to cone 06.
