Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile and sprinkle some AC-310 Silkscreen Medium on top. Use a palette knife to mix color and medium to the consistency of thick peanut butter. If the mix is to thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if too thick add more Stroke and Coat. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give you black areas in your screen. You can also use SG-401 Black Designer Liner for more color saturation.
  3. Position the DSS-116 Stylized screen on the piece and hold in place, Starting in the center, rub the mixture onto the screen with your finger. Lift a corner up to check if you are applying enough color. Remove the screen and wash with water.

  5. Use the RB-104 #4 Liner brush and SC-15 Tuxedo to puddle in the color for the heart-shaped nose and eyes.
  6. Use the dandelion puff from the Stylized screen to create the line from the nose.
  7. Use the same screen to overlap the circular pattern around the eyes, cheeks, forehead, and chin.
  8. Add the scrolls and leaves to add more design around the puffs.
  9. Allow the screened images to dry completely.
  10. Use the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan to apply 3 coats of FN-002 Yellow to the inside of the mug.
  11. Use Liner Brush to apply 1 coat of each of these colors to the piece: SC-33 Fruit of the Vine, SC-78 Lime Light, SC-82 Tuscan Red and FN-002 Yellow to apply 1 coat of color. Use your imagination to select which colors go where.
  12. Once those colors are dry, use the Soft Fan to apply 2 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing Glaze.
  13. Fire to cone 06.
