Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque tile. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-001 White. Let dry.
  3. Using AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper and a pencil, transfer the pattern to the canvas.
  4. Using AC-213 Sponge on a Stick, apply SC-97 Cant-elope to ST-113 Circulate (be sure to dab off excess glaze before applying to the stamp). Apply stamp to one of the umbrellas. *You don't have to worry if you go outside the edge of the umbrella.
  5. Repeat the previous step, but with SC-27 Sour Apple and ST-345 Large Deco Circles and apply to a different umbrella. *I used sections of the circles to create a pattern.
  6. Using a sponge, wipe away any stamping that may have gotten outside of the umbrellas.
  7. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, on every other section of the large umbrella, blend 2 coats of SC-27 Sour Apple to SC-16 Cotton Tail. Use SC-28 Blue Isle to blend the remaining sections.
  8. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-27 Sour Apple to 2 of the remaining umbrellas and SC-28 Blue Isle to another one.
  9. For the final umbrella, use SC-97 Cant-elope to shade each section. Keeping it most concentrated in one corner and fading it out towards the top. Repeat for 2 coats using CB-16 #6 Script Liner.
  10. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of FN-224 Key Lime to the umbrella stamped with SC-27 Sour Apple and 1 coat of FN-226 Squash blossom to the other stamped umbrella.
  11. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-2 Melon-Choly to the background and with a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats to the outside edge of the canvas.
  12. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-15 Tuxedo to outline the umbrellas.
  13. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-15 Tuxedo in a stripe pattern around the outside edge.
  14. Let dry completely.
  15. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
