Instructions

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

2. Using the Soft Fan with SC-16 Cotton Tail, apply one coat to the body of the truck.

3. Punch the paper using the star and circle punches. You will be using a combination of both the positive and negative shapes. For the negative shapes, use the scissors to cut them from the paper.

4. Layout where you want the positive shapes. Dip them in water and stick them to the truck. Using the Script Liner with SC-16 Cotton Tail, apply 1 coat over the shapes. 

5. Using the Script Liner with SC-45 My Blue Heaven, apply 1 coat to the body of the truck. While applying, use SC-11 Blue Yonder to shade. Allow glaze to dry. Repeat for a second coat. Remove all paper shapes before the glaze dries.

6. Layout where you want the negative shapes. Dip them in water and stick them to the truck. Using the Script Liner with SC-11 Blue Yonder, apply 2 coats to the shapes. Allow glaze to dry between coats. Remove all paper shapes before the glaze dries. 

7. Using the Script Liner with SC-60 Silver Lining, apply 2 coats to the windows, grille and bumpers. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
