Instructions

1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 

2. Using the Script Liner with SC-6 Sunkissed, apply 2 coats to her hair. Allow glaze to dry between coats. 

3. Use water to thin SC-48 Camel Back. Use the Script Liner to apply the wash to her hair. Blot off with the sponge. 

4. Using the Script Liner with SC-20 Cashew Later, apply 2 coats to her face and hands.

5. Use the sponge with SC-2 Melon-Choly to highlight her cheeks, nose and hands.

6. Using the Detail Liner with SC-11 Blue Yonder, apply 2 coats to the iris of her eyes. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, apply a dot to the center of her eyes to make the pupil. Outline her eyes and make eyelashes. Use SG-402 White to make a dot in the pupil.
