  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-015 Brick Red into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water).  It should be the consistency of a coffee cream.  Pour this into the vase and roll around to completely coat the interior of the vase.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep the vase inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the front of the vase. Allow to dry.
  4. With a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, transfer the image onto the vase.
  5. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-81 Cinnamon Stix to the bottom section of each petal. Blend that into 2 coats of SC-82 Tuscan Red in the top sections. Add SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the tips of some petals for an extra highlight.
  6. Using a CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 2 coats of FN-032 Canton Jade to the stems. Add 1 coat of SC-7 Leapin’ Lizard under the flower and along one side to shade the stem.
  7. Using a combination of the CB-106 #6 Script Liner and the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-008 Brown to the rest of the vase.
  8. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner, outline the flowers and stems with 1 coat of SC-15 Tuxedo and add in the centers. Allow to dry.
  9. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
