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 Brushing Glaze into a small cup and add a little bit of 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 vase and roll around to completely coat the interior of the vase.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep vase inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge.
  3. Wipe out the glaze in the neck of the vase. Allow to dry.
  4. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-032 Canton Jade to the outside of the vase; next apply 1 coat of SC-91 Seabreeze to the vase, then apply some SC-78 Lime Light to the right side of the vase. Allow to dry.
  5. With a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace the pattern onto the vase.
  6. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply a couple of coats of SG-501 Sculpture Medium to the flat vase and the flower, it is not necessary to brush to a smooth finish.
