Instructions

 

 

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With a pencil sketch on the trunk of the tree and branches.
  3. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick load the sponge with SC-15 Tuxedo. Tap the SC-15 Tuxedo onto the ST-367 Leafy Border Stamp. Position the stamp so that it makes sense for the branches, just stamp one leaf or the small group of three leaves at a time.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats SC-77 Glow Worm for some of the leaves and SC-26 Green Thumb for the others.
  5. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-90 Elephant Ears to the trunk of the tree and branches.
  6. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, streak in some of the SG-401 Designer Liner to the trunk and branches.
  7. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-76 Cara-bein Blue the sky background, then one puddle coat of CG-975 Sky Diamonds.
  8. The foreground should be unpainted at this time. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick load the sponge with SC-75 Orange-A-Peel, tap onto the ST-113 Circulate Stamp leaving some open space then load and tap on SC-24 Dandelion in the open area. Press the stamp gently onto the piece to the foreground overlapping some onto the blue area.  Allow to dry.
  9. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply SC-26 Green Thumb to some patterns of the stamp.
  10. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing glaze over the stamped areas and the tree trunk and blanches, its okay to get it on the crystal glaze. Allow to dry.
