Instructions

  1. On 04 bisque, thin slightly FN-213 Saffire Blue, pour to the inside, roll, pour out excess.
  2. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan brush on a thin coat of FN-211 Sheer Bue under the area of the fish stencil.  Lay the stencil in the wet glaze.  This will make the stencil stick, and prevent bleed throughl.
  3. Use a rubber squeegee to apply the SG-501 Sculpting Medium over the stencil. Let the Sculpting Medium dry a bit, then use CB-106 #6 Script Liner to apply SG-404 Blue Designer Liner over the Sculpting Medium.  Remove the stencil.
  4. Use a pencil to draw coral at the bottom of the piece.  Brush on 2-3 coats of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral with CB-106 #6 Script Liner.
  5. Pick a couple of fish from the ST-389 Fish Stamp, use the sponge on a stick with SG-404 Blue to tap the individual fish, press to to the shape, around the fish and coral.
  6. Outline the coral with SG-401 Black Designer Liner. Add dots to the coral using Black Designer Liner, and then add a white dot using SG-402 White Designer Liner under each black dot.
  7. When all the glazes are dry, brush three coats of FN-211 Sheer Blue to the surface, brush only one coat to the coral, brush the remaining coats, close to the coral brushing over the edges. On the second and third coat, of the Sheer Blue, brush back over the fish with some water to remove glaze.
  8. After apply the third coat of Sheer Blue, while it is very wet, spatter FN-213 Saffire Blue to the dot with a stiff toothbrush.
