Birds of a Feather Tree
Designer: Laura Fraedrich
 
 

Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan brush, apply 3 coats of FN-48 Bright Pink to entire Jolly Christmas Tree.
  3. Using a pencil, draw bird shapes facing in different directions all over the tree.
  4. Using the CB-106 Script Liner, apply two coats of SC-27 Sour Apple to several of the birds. Repeat with SC-97 Cant-elope and SC-11 Blue Yonder until all of the birds are painted.
  5. Load a section of the BT-910 Synthetic Sponge with SC-3 Wine About It. Sponge on color to the bottom sides of the swirls of the tree using an up and down pouncing motion.
  6. Fill a clean AC-219 Designer Bottle with Writer Tip with SC-15 Tuxedo. Draw around the bird bodies, then add legs, eyes, beaks and patterned wings to each bird. Add a few lines and/or dots to the edges to the swirls of the tree.
  7. Dip the end of the Script Liner handle into a small pool (about the size of a nickel) of SC-16 Cotton Tail. Dab it onto a section of the tree between the birds to make a polka dot. Repeat this until you cover all of the areas between the birds with dots.
  8. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06
