Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Cut out your pattern out of contact paper. Trace pattern on with a pencil so you can see the placement for cat.
  3. Place some SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile and sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife mix color and medium to the consistency of thick peanut butter. If the mix is to thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if too thick add more Underglaze. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give you blank areas in your screen. You can also use SG-401 Black Designer liner for more color saturation.
  4. Silkscreen on the standing cat on the tomb stone.
  5. Silkscreen your cat on a piece of paper and cut it out.
  6. Using CB-104 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the cat. Dampen the cat that you sreened on paper, and lay it over the coated cat for a mask. Make sure the edges are all pressed down so no paint can seep underneath.
  7. Cut out the paper circle, and trace it on your canvas for the moon. 
  8. Apply 2 coats of SC-24 Dandelion to the moon with CB-604 #4 Fan Brush.
  9. Apply 1 coat of SC-24 Dandelion to the paper moon cut out. Apply SC-97 Cant-elope, SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral, and SC-95 Pinkie Swear on top of SC-24 Dandelion in a circular motion. Before the paper dries lay the paint side down to the moon on the canvas and gently press to get out the air bubbles.
  10. Apply 2 coats of FN-009 Black using CB-604 #4 Fan Brush to the remainder of the canvas. Let dry.
  11. Use a CB-604 #4 Fan Brush, load one side of the brush with SC-13 Grapel and the other side with SC-71 Purple-licious, and in a horizontal sweeping motion apply to the background. Leaving a little of the FN-009 Black showing. Let dry.
  12. Using CB-104 #6 Script Liner,sweep SC-97 Cant-elope, Sc-13 Grapel, and Sc-95 Pinkie Swear in a circular motion around the outside of your paper moon to create a glow.
  13. When your piece has lost it wet shiny look, peel off the paper from your moon, peel off the contact paper and peel the paper off the cat.
  14. Clean off any glaze that seeps under the contact paper.
  15. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
  16. Paint SS-138 Flat Black acrylic to the white bisque areas.
