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-88 Tu Tu Tango, apply two coats to the hat. Allow glaze to dry between coats. 

3. Wrap the gnome in paper towels so that only the hat is showing. Tape in place.

4. Squeeze around 1 TBS of SC-97 Cant-elope and SC-81 Cinnamon Stix onto the plate. Dip the bristles of the toothbrush into SC-97 Cant-elope. Bring it close to the hat and run your thumb down the bristles to make a splatter pattern. Repeat for SC-81 Cinnamon Stix. You might want to practice on paper.

5. Squeeze around 1 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the plate.  Thin with water. Use the Script Liner to apply a wash to his beard, eyebrows and hair.  

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

7. Use the sponge with SC-2 Melon-Choly to highlight his cheeks, nose and hands. Use the Detail Liner to apply 2 coats to his lip. Allow glaze to dry between coats. 

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

9. Using the Script Liner with SC-26 Green Thumb, apply 1 coat over his shirt. Apply a second coat and shade with SC-36 Irish Luck and SC-27 Sour Apple. 

10. Using the Script Liner with SC-11 Blue Yonder apply 2 coats to his pants. Shade with SC-76 Cara-Bein Blue. Allow glaze to dry between coats. 

11. Using the Detail Liner with SC-6 Sunkissed, apply 2 coats to his belt buckle. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
