  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 thinned with water coats of EL-103 Sea Spray to the candleholder. Allow to dry.
  3. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick load the sponge with SC-15 Tuxedo. Tap the SC-15 Tuxedo onto the ST-370 Asian Influence Stamp then press the stamp gently onto the candlestick shape in a random pattern, without overlapping the impressions. Use paper to hold over the stamped design then re-stamp the design letting part of the stamp to overlap on the paper. This will give an interesting effect. Continue stamping around the piece. You may want to cut this stamp into 3 sections. Allow to dry.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-15 Tuxedo to the edge of the candlestick. Allow to dry.
  5. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
