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

  2. Using the Script Liner with SC-16 Cotton Tail, apply 2 coats to the eyes. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  3. Using the Soft Fan with SC-11 Blue Yonder, apply 3 coats to the body and bottom. Allow glaze to dry between coats. Make sure glaze is bone dry before moving onto the next step.

  4. Squeeze around 1 TBS of SC-76 Cara-Bein Blue onto the palette. Thin with water. Using the Soft Fan, brush over the body of the bird. The glaze should pool into the crevices. You can dip the Soft Fan in water to remove any excess glaze.

  5.  Squeeze around 1 TSP of SC-2 Melon-Choly onto the palette. Dip the sponge in the glaze and sponge the cheeks of the bird.

  6. Using the Script Liner with SC-23 Jack O’Lantern, apply 2 coats to the beak.

  7. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, outline the details on the bird.

  8. Using the Soft Fan with SC-76 Cara-Bein Blue, apply 3 coats to the inside of the bird.

  9. Fire to cone 06.
