Instructions

  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 2 coast of FN-001 White to the book and 3 coats to the pages.
  3. Punch out 28 1-inch paper circles from the paper punch.
  4. Wet the paper circles and stick them the top and bottom border of the book so that half of the punch shows, so it will look like a scallop.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply a heavy coat of SC-94 Curry Around to the front and back of the book and SC-88 Tu Tu Tango to the binding.
  6. Lay the lace in the glaze while the glaze is wet, and brush back over with the same color that is under the lace.
  7. Allow to dry so that the color will not come off when you touch it.
  8. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SC-93 Honeydew List over the lace. Remove the lace after the second coat.
  9. Using a CB-106 # Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral into the scallops.
  10. Apply 1 coat of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral to the flowers, and the top section of the bird.
  11. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply SC-15 Tuxedo to the feet, beak and eye.
  12. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply SC-10 Teal Next Time to the vines, and using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-9 Jades to the leaves, tipping with SC-10 Teal Next Time.
  13. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral to the inside of the book.
  14. Thin SC-94 Curry Around to brush over the pages, wipe off excess. Allow to dry.
  15. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
