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 3 coats of FN-039 Light Gray to the entire piece. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a Watercolor marker, sketch on the flowers, stems and leaves.
  4. Using a CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, block in the flowers with 1 coat of SC-6 Sunkissed.
  5. Using a CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-78 Lime Light to the stems and leaves.
  6. Using a CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SG-202 White Cobblestone to all painted areas.
  7. For the flowers, apply at random 1 coat of SC-74 Hot Tamale, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and SC-6 Sunkissed using a CB-106 # 6 Script Liner. If more than 1 coat is applied, the Cobblestone might not break apart in the firing.
  8. Using a CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply to the leaves 1 coat of SC-27 Sour Apple and 1 coat of SC-26 Green thumb to the stems.
  9. Using a CB-110 # 10/0 Liner, outline and add detail lines to the flower with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  10. If lettering is desired, look up a font of your choice, and trace onto the piece with AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, then using a CB-110 # 10/0 Liner loaded in SC-15 Tuxedo apply to the lettering.
  11. Stilt and fire to Shelf Cone 06.
