  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-039 Light Gray to the entire squirrel.
  3. Using the Script Liner, layer and blend SC-16 Cotton Tail, SC-35 Gray Hare, SC-48 Camel Back, and SC-92 Cafe Ole on the tail moving with the motion of the hair.
  4. Using the Soft Fan, thin SC-92 Cafe Ole' and apply as a wash over the body of the squirrel so it fills in the detail of the hair.
  5. Using the Mini Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the eyes and add SC-48 Camel Back to make the iris and SC-15 Tuxedo for the pupils.
  6. Using the same brush, apply 1 coat of SC-15 Tuxedo to outline the eyes, noes, fingers, and toes.
  7. Let dry completely.
  8. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
