Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. On a palette, mix SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium with a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter.
    • If the mix is too thin, add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. If the mix is too thick, add more SC-15 Tuxedo.
  3. Position hare from the DSS-0101 Woodland Animals shiny side down on a piece of paper. Hold in place. Starting from the center of the hare outward, rub the thickened SC-15 Tuxedo mixture over the screen with a squeegee. Remove the screen and wash with water. Allow screened image to dry.
    • Review the Silkscreen Instructions for further information on how to properly clean your screen for additional future use.
  4. With scissors, cut out the screened image from the paper. Place the cut out image in the center of the tile and outline with a pencil.
  5. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the inside of the outlined image, going over the line slightly.
  6. Using the cut out screened image as a pattern, outline an additional shape on a piece of paper. Cut out shape from paper, wet the paper and align over the SC-16 Cotton Tail painted area. Smooth out the paper using a BT-910 Synthetic Sponge. This will act as a mask for the following steps. 
  7. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SC-77 Glo Worm to the tile, overtop the paper pattern. While the 2nd coat is still damp, place the hamper netting over the tile and gently press into the glaze. Apply 1 additional coat of SC-77 Glo Worm overtop the hamper netting. Allow to set up.
  8. Place a paper towel over the hamper netting to soak up the excess glaze from the netting. Remove paper towel.
  9. Using a squeegee, apply SG-501 Sculpting Medium over the entire tile, filling in the holes of the hamper netting.
  10. Just as the SC-501 Sculpting Medium sets up (loses its shine), using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SG-408 Orange over the SG-501 Sculpting Medium. As soon as the SG-408 Orange loses its shine, carefully remove the hamper netting. If the netting the left too long, the SG-501 Sculpting Medium will fault.
  11. Remove the paper pattern from the tile.
  12. Align the hare from DSS-0101 Woodland Animals with the blank, masked area on the tile. Rub the thickened SC-15 Tuxedo mixture over the screen with a squeegee.
  13. If desired, using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the edges of the tile.
  14. Allow to dry. 
  15. Fire to witness cone 06.
