- Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
- Position the bird screen on a piece of paper, with the shiny side down. Hold the screen on the paper with one hand and rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen onto the paper using a finger. This will create a template/mask.
- Cut out the body of the bird from DSS-0108 Aviary-Small Birds in paper. Trace around the bird on the tile.
- Using CB-106 Script Liner, apply two coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the bird area.
- Brush a coat of water over the cotton Tail, and press on the paper bird, to act as a mask. Blot with a sponge to adhere completely.
- Using CB-604 Soft Fan, apply two coats of FN-053 Mint over the tile, but not over the entire bird.
- Place SL-431 Bloom on the tile under the bird, and roll with 2" foam roller with SC-79 It's Sage. Roll lightly in all directions to avoid glaze seeping under the stencil.
- Remove the paper bird.
- Place some SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile and sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife, mix color and medium to the consistency of peanut butter. If the mix is too thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if it is too thick add more Stroke & Coat. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick of a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give blank areas in your screen.
- Match up the bird screen from DSS-0108 Aviary-Small Birds to the Cotton Tail, and with the shiny side down, rub the thickened Tuxedo mix over the screen.
- Using the music lines from DSS-0124 Music, place shiny side down, and screen.
- Fire to cone 05/06.
