Instructions

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

2. Apply three coats of SC-2 Melon-Choly to entire plaque using the Soft Fan. Allow to dry between coats. Make sure plaque is completely dry. 

3. Pour about two tablespoons of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing onto the plate. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes of the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more Silkscreen Medium or glaze. Add a few drops of blue food coloring. 

4. On the DSS-0156 Llama Drama screen, locate the llama on the left side of the screen, the cactus in the lower left corner and the saying "NO PROB LLAMA". Draw an outline around them in permanent marker. Cut them out with the excess screen around the edges. 

5. Place the llama's head on the left side of the plaque. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of the premixed silkscreen medium, and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward. Place the cactus on the right side of the plaque and repeat process. 

6. Using the Detail Liner and SC-87 Ruby Slippers, fill in the ears on the llama and the flower on the cactus. Do another coat after the first coat is dry.

7. Using the Detail Liner and SC-26 Green Thumb, fill in the cactus. Do another coat after the first coat is dry.

8. Using the Detail Liner and SC-6 Sunkissed and SC-11 Blue Yonder, fill in the pompoms around the llama's neck. Do another coat after the first coat is dry.

9. Squeeze about two tablespoons of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the plate. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes of the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more Silkscreen Medium or glaze. 

10. Place the llama screen back to it's previous position. It must be perfectly lined up. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of the premixed silkscreen medium, and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward. Place the cactus screen back and repeat the process. Place the "NO PROB LLAMA" screen in the center of the plaque and repeat. 

11. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze.

12. Fire to cone 06.
