Instructions

 

 

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-005 Pink into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it. 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 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 3 coats of FN-014 Antique White to the outside of the vase, except for the footed area.
  4. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-005 Pink to the footed area of the vase. Allow to dry.
  5. Using AC-230 Clay Carbon and a pencil, trace on the pattern.
  6. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 1 coat of SC-001 Pink A Boo to the petals of the blossoms.
  7. Using the CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, load in SC-1 Pink-A-Boo and tip in any of the red, pink or purple Stroke and Coat colors listed above. Apply to the petals from the base toward the tip. Keep the flowers different in color. Some can be more purple, others more pinke, or a mixture of both colors. Refer to color photo for ideas.
  8. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-79 It's Sage to all the leaves.
  9. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, re-load in SC-79 It's Sage and tip or side load in SC-78 Lime Light, SC-63 Popeye's Favorite or SC-26 Green Thumb and shade one side of each leaf. Side load in another green color or any of the pinks or purples and shade the opposite side.
