Instructions


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-014 Antique White to the top of the tray. Allow to dry.
  3. Cut out the paper flowers and leaves from the pattern. Pencil in position on the tray.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush on heavily the following colors right on the paper flowers. Brush on one flower at a time. Centers of the flower petals are SC-74 Hot Tamale and the outer flower petal edges are SC-82 Tuscan Red. Brush a small section of SC-85 Orkid on the center of the flower and finish center with SC-84 Dee John.
  5. Place the paper flower paint side down in position on the tray. Press gently. Wait a few seconds then press firmly, wiping back any excess paint that will leak from under the edges of the paper with a damp sponge.
  6. Using a  CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush on glazes heavily on the paper leaves. First paint in the SC-84 Dee John in the centers of the leaves then fill in the rest of the leaves with SC-63 Popeye's Favorite. Press in position as above.
  7. Connect the leaves and flowers with vines and stems using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner loaded with SC-SC-63 Popeye's Favorite.
  8. Using the AC-213 Sponge, load the sponge with SC-84 Dee John. Tap the SC-84 Dee John onto the ST-110 Splatter Stamp and stamp on the background of the tray. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick, load the sponge with SC-82 Tuscan Red. Tap SC-82 Tuscan Red onto the ST-110 Splatter Stamp and stamp the remainder of the background of the tray.
