Instructions


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

  3. Condition a sponge by wetting with water. Squeeze out all the water then roll in a paper towel to remove any remaining moisture.
  4. Place the following colors onto a palette: SC-74 Hot Tamale, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and SC-76 Cara-bein Blue.
  5. Using the conditioned sponge, pick up one of the colors at a time and sponge the color onto the stamp. Repeat with the remaining colors till all of the stamp is covered.
  6. Position the stamp onto the piece. Using your fingertips, press the stamp all over the back surface of the stamp. Remove the stamp.
  7. Repeat steps #5 and #6 till the piece is covered with the desired amount of stamping.
  8. Clean the sponge and stamps.
  9. Using a conditioned sponge, pinch the sponge and load it with SC-76 Cara-bein Blue. Run the sponge around the outside edge of the piece creating a border. Allow to dry.
