Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place pattern on a sheet of AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper and trace the pattern onto the bisque.
  3. Familiarize yourself with the silkscreen instructions. Pour SC-63 Popeye's Favorite onto a palette and sprinkle with SG-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife, mix the materials until it is smooth and has the consistency of peanut butter.  
  4. Apply the thickened mixture to various leaves from DSS-0111 Botanical Leaves silk screen to create a background design.  You can use a screen approximately three times  consecutively before it starts to gum up and needs cleaning.
  5. Use SG-406 Designer Liner Brown to color in the branches
  6. Use CB-106 #6 Script Liner to apply two coats of SC-97 Cant-elope to the top of the seeds, then apply two coats of SC-81 Cinnamon Stix to the bottom. Blend the two colors where they meet.
  7. Outline the left side of the seed pods with SG-406 Designer Liner Brown, the right side with SG-401 Designer Liner Black.
  8. Use SG-401 Designer Liner Black to mark dots on the seed pod and outline the branches.
  9. Apply two coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing with CB-604 #4 Soft Fan.
  10. Fire to cone 05-06.
