  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

  3. With a pencil, draw two spirals inside the previously traced circles. 
  4. Using SG-401 Black, outline the traced circles. Also using SC-401 Black to the large circle indent on the top of the MB-1410 Button Box lid.
