Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Optional:  Dremel out holes in the headlights for the bulbs, if desired. Tape over the holes when glazing the inside of the truck.
  3. Slightly thin FN-009 Black (3 parts glaze to 1 part water) and pour inside of the truck and roll to coat all surface areas. Pour out the excess glaze and leave upside down to drain the excess glaze.  Sponge off any black glaze that leaks onto the truck body.
  4. Using either the Daggar brush or CB-604 #4 Soft Fan the Brush apply 3 coats of SC-22 Carrot Top to the body.
  5. Shading:  Use the Dagger brush and load the length of the brush with SC-80 Basketball. Lay the tip against the wheel well, running board and fender and apply one coat. 
  6. Shading:  In the same areas apply one coat of SC-81 Cinnamon Stix.  This time only load 1/2 of the brush bristles with SC-81 Cinnamon Stix so it is a narrower application of color.
  7. Tip:  if the colors are too stark or look like specific lines you can apply a coat of SC-22 Carrot Top over the shading to knock down.  
  8.  For the yellow-orange sections of the truck - the fender, running board and wheel wells.  Apply two coats of SC-97 Cant-elope. Two coats of SC-97 Cant-elope is sufficient as it is a strong color. This area is smaller so the CB-106 #6 Script Liner may work best.  
  9.  Shading or highlights: Use the Dagger brush to apply SC-42 Butter Me Up to the high points of the areas.  Think of where the sun would hit the fenders.
  10. Shading or highlights:  Using the Daggar brush with the point of the brush next to the body of the truck apply 1 coat of SC-5 Tiger Tail over the SC-42 Butter Me Up. 
  11. Next:  slightly SC-15 Tuxedo and 1/2 load the chiseled bristles to apply 1 coat ver the SC-5 Tiger Tail.  i
  12. Using the CB-106 #6 Script Liner apply two coats of SC-60 Silver Lining to the grill and hub cabs (cabs can be either SC-97 Cant-elope or SC-60 Silver Lining).   Let dry before adding next color/steip.
  13. When the SC-60 is dry brush a very thin coat of SC-15 Tuxedo over the grill and bumper to shade or antique.   With the side of a wet brush rub over the grill to bring back the gray color.
  14. Brush two coats of SC-97 Cant-elope or two coats of SC-60 Silver Lining to the hubcaps.   Using the Dagger Brush shade around the edges with SC-15 Tuxedo,
  15. Use the CB-106 Script Liner to apply brush two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the tires.
  16. Windows:  You want the finish to look streaky as if light is hitting the glass.  Two options:  1.  Using the CB-106 Script Liner apply one full coat the the glass.  Then add a second coat here and there for depth.  2.  Paint the glass solid and while the second coat is still wet, lightly brush in SC-16 Cotton Tail here and there. 
  17. Apply clear glaze of choice. 
  18. Stilt and fire to cone 05/06.
  19. Pull the headlights through the holes, put a bead of hot glue around the opening, push the headlight into place.
