Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Pour a small amount (about the size of a quarter) of both SC-24 Dandelion and SC-23 Jack O’ Lantern onto a palette very close to each other. It’s okay if the two are touching.
  3. Use the piece of thin, flexible cardboard to scoop up a small amount of both colors. Apply the glazes to the body of the fish with the cardboard, using random strokes.
  4. Next, pour out small amounts of SC-27 Sour Apple and SC-26 Green Thumb onto the pallet close to each other but farther away from the Dandelion and Jack O’ Lantern and using a different side of the cardboard, repeat step 3.
  5. Repeat step 4 with SC-13 Grapel and SC-3 Wine About It.
  6. Using the CB-408 Size 8 Round brush, paint 3 coats of SC-35 Gray Hare to the eyes of the fish.
  7. Using the CB-408 Size 8 Round brush, paint one thick coat of SC-15 Tuxedo in a smaller circle to the eyes of the fish for the pupil.
  8. Once the Stroke and Coats on the body are completely dry, draw in the scales with SG-405 Green.
  9. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan Brush, paint three coats of S-2729 Citrus Splash to the head of the fish.
  10. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan Brush, paint three coats of SG-722 Seawind to the fin and tail of the fish. 
  11. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan Brush, paint two coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing glaze to the body of the fish.
  12. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06
