1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Use the Soft Fan to apply three coats of SC-11 Blue Yonder inside the container. Or, slightly thin the color and pour inside, roll to coat, pour out excess and drain.

2. Brush on three thinned coats of SC-20 Cashew Later to the flesh. Use a sponge to sponge the cheeks with SC-2 Melon-Choly.

3. Use the Script Liner to float or shade around the edges of the flesh areas with SC-48 Camel Back.

4. Use the Liner to apply 2-3 coats of SC-45 My Blue Heaven to the bikini top.

5. Use the Sofrt Fan to apply three coats of SC-45 My Blue Heaven to the top of the fishtail and into the middle. Add SC-11 Blue Yonder to the brush to darken the sides and middle (around and into the My Blue Heaven area) to fade the colors.  Add SC-29 Blue Grass to the Blue Yonder brush for the remainder of the tail. Remove the glaze in the tail detail with a toothpick so the detail shows.

5. Use the Liner to apply one coat of SC-29 Blue Grass to the shell in the mermaid's hair. Wipe off so the glaze stays in the detail.

6. Use the Script Liner to apply 2-3 coats of SC-80 Basketball and SC-22 Carrot Top to the mermaid's hair. Apply in the direction of the hair hair, alternating the color and overlapping. Use SC-89 Ruby Slippers to brush into the shadow areas of the hair.

7.  Use the Liner toi dot the beads with SC-16 Cotton Tail. Scrape out the glaze from the eyes, then apply two coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail. Apply two thinned coats of SC-76 Cara-Bein Blue to the iris. Apply SC-15 Tuxedo to the pupil and eyelashes.

8. Use the Soft Fan to apply one coat of SG-701 Star Dust to the mermaid's tail. Apply one coat of NT-BR Clear to the remainder of the mermaid.
