Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

  3. Cut out the large sections of the pattern, the bird with the large leaves and branches.
  4. Lightly brush water onto the paper patterns and place them onto the canvas. Use a paper towel to press into place and absorb excess water.
  5. Use CB-604 #4 Soft Fan Brush to apply three coats of SC-45 My Blue Heaven to the top two-thirds of the canvas (including sides). Use same brush to apply three coats of SC-96 Aqu-ward to the lower half, overlapping where they meet. Remove the paper patterns.
  6. Brush three coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the bird, add a little of SC-15 Tuxedo to the Candy Apple Red to darken for the area around the beak, use the Tuxedo for the eye.
  7. When dry to the touch, use the sponge on the stick to tap SC-81 Cinnamon Stix to the ST-113 Circulate Stamp, then press to the cardinal for design.
  8. For the Brerries and the Cardinals claws, use the SG-403 Red Designer Liner, the stems of the berries, use SG-402 White designer Liner.
