Instructions

 

 

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a RB-140 #8 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-001 White to the front and to the back of the plate. Allow to dry.
  3. With a pencil lightly sketch out the shape of the tree.
  4. Using a BT-910 Synthetic Sponge with SC-26 Green Thumb and SC-27 Sour Apple paint the tree. Dip your sponge in the glaze and pull it across the plate in a comma stroke fashion. Using 2 colors will give it a two-tone effect.
  5. Dip your sponge in SC-45 My Blue Heaven and pull it across the plate around the tree for sky.
  6. Using a RB-118 #8 Round, apply SC-41 Brown Cow as a the base of the tree. Use long brush strokes pulling towards you. Then dip your brush in SC-14 Java Bean and SC-34 Down To Earth doing long brush strokes on top of the SC-41 Brown Cow to give the tree trunk high and low shading.
  7. With a pencil lightly draw where the apples will be placed. Use smaller apples for lots of kids, larger apples for fewer kids pictures.
  8. Using a RB-118 #8 Round, apply 3 coats of FN-001 White where the pictures will be placed.
  9. Using a RB-118 #8 Round, apply 2-3 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale for the apple.
  10. Using a RB-118 #8 Round, apply SC-26 Green Thumb and SC-8 Just Froggy to paint one or two leaves on the top of the apples and scatter a few in the tree branches.
  11. Using a RB-100 #0 Detail Liner, lightly outline the leaves and a center vein with SC-15 Tuxedo. Allow to dry.
  12. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
  13. Create and apply the photo images and text to the plate per image transfer instructions.
  14. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 05/06.
