Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Thin the S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing (3:1 glaze to water ratio) to a rolling constancy, and roll glaze the inside of the vase until completely coated. Pour out remaining glaze.
  3. Using a damp sponge, remove any drips from the outside and clean any glaze from the inside neck area.
  4. Using the AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace on the pattern to both sides of the vase.
  5. Using the SG-406 Designer Liner Brown, outline and add veins to all the leaves.

    The leaves are completed using 3 colors on each leaf, thinning them slightly and blending wet into wet so there are no hard lines, as follows:

  6. Using the CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, to the Elm leaves apply SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-78 Lime Light and SC-97 Cant-elope.
  7. Using the CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, to the Oak leaves apply SC-82 Tuscan Red, SC-94 Curry Around and SC-78 Lime Light.
  8. Using the CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, to the Maple leaves apply SC-97 Cant-elope, SC-27 Sour Apple and SC-82 Tuscan Red.
  9. Using the CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply 1 thinned coat of SC-96 Aqu-ward to the background areas in-between the leaves.
  10. Using both the CB-604 # 4 Soft Fan and CB-106 # 6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats to the body of the bottle and inside the neck area with 3 coats of EL-139 Nectar.
  11. Using the CB-406 # 6 Soft Fan, apply 1 to 2 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing over the leaf area.
  12. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 05/06.
