Instructions

  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust making sure not to over saturate the bisque.
  2. Place some FN-017 Purple Foundations into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze to 1 part water). It should be the consistency of coffee cream. Pour this mixture into the vase and roll around to completely coat the interior of the vase. Drain out the excess glaze and keep the vase inverted until it has lost its shine.  Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge.  Allow to dry.
  3. Apply three coats of SC-97 Cant-elope onto the roof of the house using the RB-144 4 Soft Fan Brush and CB-404 Pointed Round.
  4. Using the same brushes apply three coats of SC-85 Orkid to the house.
  5. Using RB-100 0 Detail and CB-404 Pointed Round Apply three coats of SC-82 Tuscan Red to the chimney and both doors.
  6. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick load the sponge with SC-15 Tuxedo. Tap the SC-15 Tuxedo onto the ST-127/E CrackleStamp then press the stamp gently onto the piece.  Continue stamping around the piece. Allow to dry.
  7. Use a wash of SC-77 Glo Worm and the RB-100 0 Detail brush to add color on the windows.
  8. To apply the stencil to the house. Use a foam roller; roll the color SC-12 Grape Jelly over the stencil SL-433 Crooked Lines making sure not to overload the applicator. Too much color will result in a blurred messy image. Turn the stamp over onto the desired area and press down on the stamp so that the stamp is making contact with the area you want stamped. Make sure not to rub back and forth or this will cause a double image. Allow to dry.
  9. Use the CB-110 Liner brush inside the windowpane lines using SC-15 Tuxedo.
  10. Place 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.
    - Position the screen shiny side down on the piece.
    - Hold in place, starting from the center out, Rub the mixture on the screen with your finger. Lift a corner up to check if you are applying enough color.
    - Remove the screen and wash with water.  Do not let the color dry in the screen. This will cause damage to the screen.
  11. Use the DSS-118 Halloween silkscreen pack for the tree screen. When screening do not place the whole screen on the front of the house. Use a part of it for both sides.
  12. Fire to cone 06.
