Instructions

 

 

  1. Roll out clay ¼ inch thick using a rolling pin on canvas. Roll a large enough piece to fit over the CD-777 Oval Hump mold.
  2. Place clay over the mold and smooth to fit the form with a damp sponge. Cut off excess clay with a needle tool.
  3. Lightly score a centerline on the form and a line intersecting for the eye placement. This will help you keep the pieces symmetrical. Use the pattern provided to cut and form pieces.
  4. Form the nose from a large coil flattened on one side according to pattern and slip attach to the face on the centerline. Score the end of the nose with a clay tool for the black color placement. Roll smaller coils for the brows and attach to the face as shown.
  5. Roll and flatten balls of clay for the eyes and slip attach under the brows. Roll larger balls of clay for the muzzle; flatten and slip attach under the nose. Make a triangle shape of clay for the mouth and attach under the muzzle.
  6. Press clay into the sun shape from CD-779 Celestial Press Mold and slip attach to the lion’s cheeks. Make small ears and attach in place.
  7. Drill small holes all around the head so the mane can be wired later.
  8. Poke holes in the back of the mask through the nose for venting.
  9. Allow to completely dry.
  10. Bisque fire to shelf cone04.
  11. Thin SC-25 Crackerjack Brown and brush over the face with CB-604 #4 Soft Fan. Lightly wipe back with a damp sponge to antique.
  12. Brush on 2 thinned coats of SC-5 Tiger Tail to the face using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan. Brush on SC-24 Dandelion with CB-404 #4 Pointed Round to the sun cheeks.
  13. Brush on 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail using aCB-404 #4 Pointed Round to the eyes. Use SC-25 Crackerjack Brown for the pupil and SC-15 Tuxedo for the iris.
  14. Paint the end of the nose with SC-15 Tuxedo using CB-404 #4 Pointed Round.
  15. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing and allow to dry. Make sure the holes are clear of glaze before firing.
  16. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
