Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Thin NT-CLR or S-2101 Clear slightly. Pour inside the vase, turn to coat and pour out to drain.
  3. Use the Soft Fan to apply three coats of FN-001 White to the jar and lid.
  4. Thicken clear glaze with Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter. Using the rose from DSS-0149 Flowers 3 XL silkscreen, screen the image onto the jar. 
  5. Use the Script Liner to apply 2 coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the rose petals. Let dry.
  6. Mix SC-15 Tuxedo with Silkscreen medium to the consistency of peanut butter. Re-screen the rose image over the painted area, lining up the image as closely as possible to the original screen. 
  7. Use the Script Liner to apply SG-963 Lemon Lime over the leaves and stems. 
  8. Use the sponge-on-a-stick to gently dab SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the heart stamp. Apply to one hearts at a time instead of the entire stamp. This will allow you to select which image to stamp. Press the heart stamp around the jar, re-applying color as needed to stamp. 
  9. Use the heart paper punch to create paper hearts. You will be using the negative. Wet the paper and press randomly around the jar. Press gently with a paper towel to ensure the edges area sealed.
  10. Using the Script Liner, apply two coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red inside the paper hearts. Brush from the outside inward to keep the color from bleeding under the paper. 
  11. Fire to cone 05/06.
