Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque tile. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, transfer the pattern onto the tile.
  3. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 heavy coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the owl outline, brushing slightly past the penciled line.
  4. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan and CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply one coat of S-2701 Peacock Eyes to the tile, keeping glaze off of the owl area.
  5. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 heavy coats of SC-52 Toadily Green to the leaves, brushing SC-97 Cant-elope in the center.
  6. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-95 Pinkie Swear and SC-97 Cant-elope in different sections of the flower.
