Project Info

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-001 White to the front of the plate. Apply 3 coats of FN-028 Wisteria Purple to the back and around the rim of the plate. This can be done now, or after you finish the design to speed up the drying process.
  3. Once the middle of the plate is dry use a sponge to liberally apply SC 28 Blue Isle to the child’s hand
  4. Immediately place the child’s hand in the center of the plate.
