1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Slightly thin FN-036 Grape, pour inside the mug, turn to coat, pour out the excess glaze and drain.

3. Use the Script Liner to apply three coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the tips of the claws. Apply three coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the remainder of the claws, overlapping the colors. Apply three coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the bottom of the crab's shell.

4. Apply three coats of SC-13 Grapel to the crab's legs, arms and the middle section of the crab's body. Apply SC-33 Fruit of the Vine to the sides of the crab's body, overlapping two of the coats over the Grapel. This will allow the center of the body to be a brighter purple and the sides a deeper purple.

5.  Outline the detail on the crab's body with SC-15 Tuxedo. Tuxedo is brushed between the spaces in the claws, eyes are Tuxedo, use CB-110 Liner.

6.  Use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of NTBR Clear One Brushing Glaze to the outside of the mug.  

7.  Fire to cone 06.
