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 2 coats of FN-001 White to the front of the plate.  Allow to dry.
  3. Mark off 1” bands and a 5”X5” Square to create the flag outline.
  4. Apply 1” Masking tape to protect the 5” Square and every other stripe.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SG-202 White Cobblestone to the remaining stripes. Apply the 1st coat, and then just as the SG-202 White Cobblestone loses its shine, apply the 2nd coat.
  6. As the second coat of SG-202 White Cobblestone loses its shine, apply 2 coats of SC-75 Hot Tamale to the stripes using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan.
  7. When the glaze looses its shine, remove all the masking tape.
  8. Punch out the desired amount of stars from standard white copy paper.
