Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using CB-604 Soft Fan to apply 3-4 smooth and even coats of FN-305 Milk Chocolate to the entire bunnies. Let dry.
  3. Using AC-230 Clay Carbon to transfer the designs to the bunnies. Cut the pattern into sections and cut relief points around the pattern to ease the transfer.
  4. On a tile place about a ½ teaspoon of FN-001 White and mix in some of the Silica Sand to the glaze using the Pallet Knife until the mixture has thickened to about Greek Yogurt consistency. The mixture should be fluid enough to move yet keep its shape when applying to the ware. Using CB-110 Liner to apply the mixture to the daisy petals of the pattern. Do not clean your tile in the sink as the sand may clog your drain.
  5. Repeat Step 4 with the rest of the Foundation colors in the same manner. Apply the FN-005 Pink mixture to the blossom flowers; FN-002 Yellow mixture to all the flower centers; FN-007 Green to some of the leaves and calyxes of the small flower buds; FN-022 Olive to the remaining leaves: FN-222 Indigo to the flower buds.
  6. Use SG-402 White to draw in the scrolls of the pattern. Apply one thin coat of FN-001 White over the drawn in scrolls of Designer Liner using CB-110 Liner.
  7. Stilt and Fire the pieces to Shelf Cone 05-06.
