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-52 Tangerine 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. Brush three coats of FN-51 Strawberry to the outside of the large finial jar, omit the rings with CB-604 Soft Fan.
  4. Brush three coats of FN-50 Coral to the small finial jar.

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. Stamp the entire surface of both jars with the Mini Fern stamp using SC-81 Cinnamon Stix.
