Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some S-2101 Crystal Clear into a small cup and add a little bit off water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water). It  should be the consistency of a coffee cream. Pour this into the inside of the snail and roll around to completely coat the interior of the snail. Drain out the excess glaze and keep the snail inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.

  6. Load the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick 1 ¼ Inch round with SC-27 Sour Apple. Place the piece of punchinella onto the roof and sponge on top of it in various places on the roof.
