  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Mositen a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Trace pattern on by placing a sheet of AC-230 Clay Carbon Tracing Paper under your pattern.  Or you can hand draw if you like.
  3. Outline the tree branch with SG-406 Brown Designer Liner. Work your way from the left side of the design to the right.
  4. Use the SG-401 Black Designer Liner to outline the spider. Work your way from the inner body to the legs.  Avoid getting color in the "hour glass" area.
  5. Add SG-403 Red Designer Liner to the "hour glass" area on the spider's back.
  6. If you missed outlining any traced lines - they will burn out during firing and remain in the final design.   Allow to dry
  7. Flip plate over and glaze the back with FN-009 Black Foundations using a Fan Glaze brush. You will need two heavy coats or three medium coats making sure each coat sets up before applying the next coat.  Allow to dry
  8. Flip plate over to see your spider design and make sure it is completely dry.  Apply two coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing over the entire front of this plate making sure not to disturb the spider or tree branch when brushing.  Allow to dry.
  9. Stilt and fire to a witness cone 05 / 06.
