  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using CB-604 Soft Fan brush on 2 coats of SC-35 Gray Hare to the back, tail, arms, legs and head on the top of the box; apply 2 coats to the outside of the bottom half of the box.
  3. Using CB-604 Soft Fan brush on 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the face and stomach.
  4. Mix a little SC-16 Cotton Tail into some SC-35 Gray Hare on a palette. Using CB-106 Script Liner, brush this mixture over the previous two coats of SC-35 Gray Hare to create a mottled fur effect.  Apply in a consistent direction: up the tail, down the arms, etc.
  5. Thin SC-15 Tuxedo with water and use CB-106 Script Liner to shade the white areas of the squirrels body. Add thinned tuxedo to the crease and crevices on the body to provide depth.
  6. Use CB-110 Liner apply SC-15 Tuxedo to detail lines on the squirrel's body and highlight facial features (see image). The eye is SC-14 Java Bean.
