Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SC-15 Tuxedo to the entire outside of both cups. Once it is dry to antique the surface, wipe back with a damp sponge.
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of EL-133 Autumn to the inside of the mug. Allow to dry.
  4. Using a combination of the CB-106 #6 Script Liner and the CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 3 coats of EL-133 Autumn to the frame of the face, eyes, lips, nose, cheeks, and eyebrows.
  5. With the same brushes, apply 3 coats of EL-132 Rust Red to the rest of the mug including the lip and foot.
  6. Using a CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to fill in the middle of the mouth if it got wiped away.
  7. Using a CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the teeth. Allow to dry.
