Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With a pencil and AAC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace on the pattern.
  3. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the red letters, and part of the rocket, stroking in some SC-16 Cotton Tail into the red on the right side of the letters, add a little SC-15 Tuxedo to the Hot Tamale to the left side of the letters to shade.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply SC-76 to the blue letters with SC-31 The Blues to the right side, add a little SC-15 Tuxedo to the Cara-bein Blue on the left side for the last coat. Apply 2 coats. Apply the same for the blue rocket area.
  5. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of S-2731 Kaboom to the stars, with crystals, and the centers of all the bursts of fireworks, apply 2 thinned coats of SC-76 Cara-bein Blue to the stars over the S-2731 Kaboom.
  6. Use SG-404 Blue Designer Liner and SG-403 Red Designer Liner to make the red and blue lines from the rocket and stars, and fireworks.
  7. Outline all the letters with SG-401 Black Designer Liner.
  8. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the inside of the platter, brushing around the stars, though its okay to overlap them.
  9. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-004 Red to the back of the platter.  Allow to dry.
