Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the BT-910 Synthetic Sponge, pounce to the upper ¼ of the plate SC-31 The Blues. Add a 2nd coat and add some SC-76 Cara-bein Blue.
  3. Tear long pieces of newspaper to resemble mountains. Holding the paper from the sky area downwards, pounce on 2 to 3 coats of SC-53 Toad-ily Green using the BT-910 Synthetic Sponge.
  4. Lay down the next piece of paper, and pounce on 3 coats of SC-26 Green Thumb using the BT-910 Synthetic Sponge.
  5. Lay down the next piece of paper, and pounce on 3 coats of SC-36 Irish Luck using the BT-910 Synthetic Sponge.
  6. Tear a smoother piece of newspaper and hold at the base of the mountains, and sponge on all 3 greens, SC-52 Toad-ily Green, SC-26 Green Thumb and SC-36 Irish Luck, to the grass area.
  7. Cut out a pine tree from card stock, and holding it in place, sponge on 2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo using the BT-910 Synthetic Sponge.
  8. 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 thick peanut butter. If the mix is to thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if too thick add more Stroke & Coat.  Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give you blank areas in your screen.  You can also use SG-401 Black Designer liner for more color saturation.
  9. Position the Moose screen from the DSS-101 Designer Silkscreen – Woodland Animals - on the pice. 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. Using a CB-604 # 4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-009 Black to the back of the plate. Allow to dry.
  12. Using the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the top of the plate or apply clear glaze of choice. Allow to dry.
  13. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
