Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place the pattern underneath the tissue paper and trace with the pencil. Place the tissue paper pattern onto the plate. Trace with the permanent marker.
  3. Squeeze 1 TSP of SC-1 Pink-A-Boo, SC-11 Blue Yonder and SC-45 My Blue Heaven onto the palette. Thin with water (around 1:1).
  4. Using the Script Liner with thinned SC-11 Blue Yonder, use the brush to make puddles and spread the glaze around the bottom left section of the background. Be sure to dip your brush in water to help spread the glaze like watercolors.
  5. Alternate between thinned SC-1 Pink-A-Boo, SC-11 Blue Yonder and SC-45 My Blue Heaven as you work your way around the background of the plate. It is ok to get a little on the pattern.
  6. Using the Script Liner with SC-45 My Blue Heaven, apply 3 coats to the face and gloves. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Script Liner with SC-1 Pink-A-Boo, apply 3 coats to the nose and flower petals. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Using the Script Liner with SC-24 Dandelion, apply 3 coats to the every-other stripe on the hat and the flower centers. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  9. Using the Script Liner with SC-27 Sour Apple, apply 3 coats to the leaves and beard. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  10. Using the Script Liner with SC-11 Blue Yonder, apply 3 coats to the remaining stipes on the hat. When glazing the last coat, use SC-45 My Blue Heaven to shade the center of the stripes. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  11. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, quickly outline all of the shapes of the gnome, leaves and flowers. It will look better if you have thick and thin lines that do not go precisely around the shapes.
  12. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping glaze.
  13. Fire to cone 06.
