Project Info


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With your CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, paint 1 coat of SC-54 Vanilla Dip all over the bisque.
  3. Then load the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan with SC-54 Vanilla Dip and dip the tip of the fan brush into SC-5 Tiger Tail and dab randomly over the piece of bisque. Repeat this process with SC-14 Java Bean (carefull not to apply too much.)
  4. Using the CB-202 #2 Detailer, load in SC-14 Java Bean and lightly add fine lines like you get with marble, pushing your brush down occasionally so the marble lines look thicker in places.
  5. When dry, draw on your leaves or trace on with AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper.
  6. Leaves - Paint 2 times as instructed below.
  7. Yellow Leaves - Using the CB-406 #6 Pointed Round pat SC-24 Dandelion on the inside of the leaves, then pat SC-5 Tiger Tail around the inside edge. Make sure you blend the two colors together where they meet. With some SC-14 Java Bean and a little SC-73 Candy Apple dab on some of the edges to give it some interest. Outline in SC-15 Tuxedo and paint in some veins with the CB-202 #2 Detailer.
  8. Green Leaves - Paint the same as the yellow leaves but use SC-27 Sour Apple on the center and SC-52 Toad-ily Green on the ouside. Pat SC-14 Java Bean on the inside edge of leaf and place veins with fine liner brush. Outline around the leaves with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  9. Yellow/Orange Leaves - Paint the same as above but using SC-24 Dandelion in the center and SC-73 Candy Apple on the edges.
  10. Orange Leaves - Use SC-75 Orange-A-Peel in the center and SC-73 Candy Apple on the outside.
  11. With the CB-406 #6 Round and SC-14 Java Bean diluted down with a little water, go around the leaves just patting the brush in the creases of the leaves, giving shading and depth.
  12. Using SC-15 Tuxedo place a band around the top of the mug and around the plate. Paint the handle of the mug with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  13. Apply S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing and allow to completely dry. Fire at cone 06
