Instructions

 

 

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-019 Dark Blue into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water). It should be the consistency of a coffee cream. Pour this into the planter and roll around to completely coat the interior of the planter. Drain out the excess glaze and keep planter inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. Slightly thin SC-12 Moody Blue, using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply to the snails body, wipe off the excess with a damp sponge to antique.
  4. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of CG-722 Sea Wind to the shell and the lower body of the snail, make sure to use the crystal.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SC-12 Moody Blue to the lower snails body, wipe off some from the ruffled edge.
  6. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply SC-12 Moody Blue in the spiral of the snail’s shell, and to darken the shell where it meets the body with.
  7. Continue brushing in a spiral direction on the shell with SC-24 Dandelion and SC-9 Jaded, 2 coats, brush over the edges of the SC-12 Moody Blue.
  8. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-203 Dry Champagne over the head and neck of the snail.
  9. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-215 Aztec Jade over the ruffled section of the body.
  10. Using a CB-202 Detail Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the eye area. Apply 2 thinned coats of SC-76 Cara bein Blue to the iris and 1-2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the pupil.
