Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place the SL-439 Hexagons Stencil even with the edges of the clipboard. Use the 2" foam roller to apply SC-31 The Blues over the stencil. Hold the roller handle at the tip and apply very gentle pressure. Too much pressure can result in color bleeding under the stencil. Move your roller in different directions to allow for even application. You may wish to practice on paper first. Move the stencil and repeat the rolling process to fill in the clipboard. Note: Do not load foam roller with a lot of glaze. Take your time and the color will gradually fill the spaces.
  3. Tape off the bottom 1 1/2"of the clipboard.
  4. Sprinkle a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium over SC-15 Tuxedo. Using a palette knife, mix color and medium together to the consistency of peanut butter. Place the Eiffel Tower silkscreen from DSS-0117 Vintage-Retro onto the clipboard, shiny side down. Rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen. Remove the screen and clean.
  5. Use the CB-604 Soft Fan to apply two coats of SC-91 Seabreeze onto the clipboard, extending over the edge of the taped area. Let dry.
  6. Using AC-230 Clay Carbon paper, trace the shoe pattern onto the clipboard. 
  7. Use the CB-106 Script Liner and the CB-110 Liner to apply two coats of SC-11 Blue Yonder to the Bike’s frame, two pf SC-97 Cant-elope to the seat and basket, two coats of SC-35 Gray Hare to the handle bars, chain and brake line.
  8. Use the CB-110 #10 Liner to apply one coat of Tuxedo to the tires.
  9. Fill in flowers with SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral, SC-2 Melon-choly, SC-97 Cant-elope and SC-11 Blue Yonder. The leaves and vines are SC-26 Green Thumb.
  10. Use SG-401 Black to outline the bicycle, basket and flowers and to write the words "Bike Love" (or whatever words you like).
  11. Remove tape from the bottom of the clipboard.
  12. Place an AC-224 Plastic Detailer Caps onto a bottle of SC-15 Tuxedo, SC-31 The Blues, SC-97 Cant-elope and SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral. Squirt lines of color in this order: SC-15 Tuxedo, SC-31 The Blues, SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral, then SC-15 Tuxedo, SC-97 Cant-elope, SC-31 The Blues, SC-15 Tuxedo.
  13. Pull the color down to the bottom, without scraping the tile, with Xiem 10238 Deco Rib.
  14. Dip into clear glaze or apply one coat of brush on one coat of S-2101 Clear with CB-604 Soft Fan.
  15. Fire to cone 05/06.
