Instructions

Dog Bowl:

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, brush 3 coats of SC-65 Peri-Twinkle to the sides of the box bottom and the middle section of the lid.
  3. On a palette, with a palette knife, mix S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing food coloring to tint. Then mix in AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to thicken to the consistency of peanut butter.
  4. Using the DSS-0119 Dogs, with the shiny side down, screen with the thickened mixture to the inside of the box, for color placement.
  5. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush the dog's tongue with 2 coats of SC-2 Melon-Choly; the chest with 2 coats of SC-91 Seabreeze, and the rest of the dog with SC-30 Blue Dawn, omitting the eye.
  6. Allow to dry.
  7. On a palette, with a palette knife, mix SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter.
  8. On the lid, align the chihuahua image from the dog screen, with the shiny side down. Using the thickened SC-15 Tuxedo mixture, screen the images to allow five heads to fit around the center with the ears almost touching.
  9. Using the thickened SC-15 Tuxedo mixture, re-screen the dog in the bowl. Take care to align the screen to the previous screened image. Also, screen the paw prints along the side of the dog.
  10. With SG-401 Designer Liner, outline the bottom of the bowl, write the bubble and word "woof" next to the dog.
  11. Clean the stamp with soap and a scotch brite pad, this will allow the glaze to stick to the surface. Pat the ST-115 Houndstooth Stamp with SC-15 Tuxedo using AC-213 Lg. Sponge on a Stick. Press the stamp to the sides of the button box. To stamp the lid, cut a circle out of paper to fit the middle section of the lid, using as a mask. Then stamp the section with the Houndstooth Stamp.
  12. Allow to dry.
  13. Brush or dip with clear, 2 coats brushing withCB-604 #4 Soft Fan and S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing.
  14. Silt the lid and the bottom of the box, fire to cone 05/06.
  15. Make a handle with hemp, threading through the button holes, and wrapping around the threaded hemp. Note: to create a finger space, place an object under the threads before beginning to thread the button holes.
