Instructions

 

 

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water).  It should be the consistency of a coffee cream.  Pour this into the jar and roll around to completely coat the interior of the jar.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep the jar inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a CB-602 #2 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of CG-963 Lemon Lime to the body of the house and the chimney.
  4. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of CG-722 Sand Petal to the roofs, make sure to evenly place crystals.
  5. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 even coats of SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to the front door, shutters, and small mushroom stem.
  6. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-6 Sunkissed over the windowpanes.
  7. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-90 Elephant Ears to the chimney.
  8. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 even coats of SC-26 Green Thumb to the grass base then float the edges with SC-36 Irish Luck.
  9. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-90 Elephant Ears to the tree branches near the front door then 1 thinned coat of SC-15 Tuxedo.
  10. Apply under the small roofs SC-6 Sunkissed, adding in some SC-75 Orange-A-Peel.
  11. Apply 1 coat of SC-52 Toad-ily Green to the roofs then 1 coat of SC-10 Teal Next Time to the roofs.
  12. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply 1 coat of SG-405 Green Designer Liner to the window panes.
  13. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, outline the shutters, front door and lines under the small roof with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  14. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, outline the detail in the front door with SG-407 Yellow Designer Liner, and circles and dots on the shutters with yellow.
  15. Use SG-405 Green Designer Liner to make a vine of leaves and stems on the branches at the front door, and stems and leaves on the flowers on the small mushroom.
  16. Use SG-402 White Designer Liner to makes petals on the small mushroom and flowers in the grass and on the vine. Dot centers with SG-407 Yellow Designer Liner, and some SG-408 Orange Designer Liner dots in the grass.
  17. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the windows, shutters, front door, small mushroom stem and grass.   Allow to dry.
