  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Thin FN-009 Black with water (3:1 glaze to water ratio). Pour inside MB-1404 Can-It Gallon to coat interior. Pour out excess glaze and clean off any glaze from the exterior and/or rim.
  3. Fire to cone 05/06.
  4. With properly glazed fired MB-1404 Can It Gallon, moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  5. Using CB-604 Soft Fan, apply one coat of MM-106 Steel Metallic to the exterior of MB-1404 Can It Gallon. Allow to dry completely.
    • Note: Be sure to shake MM-106 Steel Metallic well to properly mix. Use an older CB-604 Soft Fan as the MM-106 Steel Metallic will leave metal residue on the brush head.
  6. Prepare the MM-305 Rapid Rust in the Liquid Spray Bottle and set aside for future use. 
    • Note: Be sure to shake the MM-305 Rapid Rust well to properly mix. 
  7. Using the same CB-604 Soft Fan, apply one additional coat of MM-106 Steel Metallic on top of the previously painted exterior.
  8. Immediately following application of the second coat of MM-106 Steel Metallic, spray MM-305 Rapid Rust heavily over the previously painted exterior. 
  • Allow MC-1404 Can-It Gallon to dry completely, overnight.
  • Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, brush on SS-81 Shimmering Silver to the outter rims of the can, both top and bottom. Brush also on the handle connector areas on the sides.
  • Apply one coat of MM-502 Matte Brush-On Sealer to can if desired. This will stop the oxidation process.
