  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. On a palette, with a palette knife, thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter.
  3. Place the bird screen from DSS-108 Aviary - Small Birds with the shiny side down on the tile, rub the thickened mixture over the screen. After finished screening the image, lift up and rinse in water to wash gently.
  4. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, paint three circular shapes above the bird using SC-6 Sunkissed, then add a smaller, inner circular shape inside using SC-75 Orange A Peel, 1-2 coats.
  5. Once dry, outline the petals and center with SG-404 Blue.
  6. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, float SC-76 Cara-bein Blue around the edges of the flowers, bird, and branch, fill in the sky with thinned SC-11 Blue Yonder.
  7. Using CB-110 #10 Mini Liner, draw small flowers at the ends of all the branches with SC-78 Lime Light, with SC-75 Orange-A-Peel centers, and outline with SC-15 Tuxedo.
