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 2 coats of FN-001 White to the tile. Allow to dry.
  3. Pencil in the position of the flowers with a stem and an oval shape, four full and two half flowers.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-31 The Blues to the oval shapes.
  5. Cut some eyelash yarn about 1 inch long and make a circle with it.  Brush glazed area again so it is wet then lay in the circle of yarn, brush over with more glaze.
  6. To speed up the drying process of the circles (flowers), you can soak up the excess glaze with a paper towel.
  7. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-12 Moody Blue over the flower area that has SC-31 The Blues.  Remove the yarn after the second coat loses its shine.
  8. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply SC-12 Moody Blue to the stem.
  9. Take a strip of hamper netting, cut it so it is uneven then using a mini foam roller, roll SC-12 Moody Blue over the netting for the subtle pattern.
  10. Dab SC-6 Sunkissed and SC-27 Sour Apple into the foreground to give an illusion of small flowers growing.
  11. Use SG-401 Black Designer Liner to go over the stems to make them more predominate. Allow to dry.
  12. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
