Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With a pencil, hold the pencil on the edge of the bottle cap and run it around the edge to get a line where the top ends and the side begins.
  3. Cut out the moose patterns.  Position the patterns and trace around the edge of the moose on the bottle cap.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-37 Ivory Tower to the antlers, apply 3 coats of SC-41 Brown Cow to the bodies and legs.
  5. After drying somewhat, brush the area with water and place the paper cut outs on the proper spaces, blot with a paper towel to remove excess water. Clean up any excess color around the edges of the pattern.
  6. The paper acts as a mask for the background.
  7. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2-3 coats of SC-65 Peri-Twinkle to the background adding in SC-16 Cotton Tail to lighten the color so it is a pale blue.  Allow to dry.
  8. Use the MT-002 Wood Grain Matt to stamp the background. Using a 2” foam roller, roll the matt with SC-12 Moody Blue then stamp the color to the bottle cap.
  9. Shade around the edges of the moose with SC-58 501 Blues, using the CB-106 Script Liner and thinning the color.
  10. Remove the paper cut out moose patter before the color dries to avoid chipping.
  11. Scratch out the eye’s, apply SC-16 Cotton Tail, then dot with SC-15 Tuxedo, use SC-15 Tuxedo for the nose and a thin accent around the moose.
  12. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick load the sponge with SC-34 Down To Earth. Tap the SC-34 Down To Earth onto the ST-343 Deco Circles Stamp then press the stamp gently onto moose body. Use only small sections of the stamp. Allow to dry.
  13. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 05/06.
  14. After firing…. Using a AB-834 3/4” Base Coat brush, apply 1 coat of SS-138 Black Softees to the side of the bottle cap.  Allow to dry.
  15. Mix the MM-106 Steel Metallic well.
  16. Using an old brush, apply 1 coat of MM-106 Steel Metallic to the sides of the bottle cap. Allow to dry. Apply a second coat of MM-106 Steel Metallic, while the second coat of the MM-106 Steel Metallic is still wet/damp, spritze liberally with MM-305 Rapid Rust.  Rust will start to appear in about 30 minuets.  Allow to dry overnight.
  17. Apply 1-2 coats of MM-502 Matt Sealer. Allow to dry between coats.
  18. Add bottle/can opener for a decorative touch.
