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 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the inside of the food canoe.   Allow to dry.
  3. On a palette, mix some SC-30 Blue Dawn with SC-16 Cotton Tail to create a soft blue color.  With a sponge, sporadically sponge on the sky, and solidly on the water area.  Allow to dry.
  4. Place some SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile and sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife mix color and medium to the consistency of thick peanut butter. If the mix is to thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if too thick add more Designer Liner.  Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give you blank areas in your screen.  You can also use SG-401 Black Designer liner for more color saturation
  5. Position the Sailboat screen on the piece. Hold in place, starting from the center out, rub the mixture on the screen with your finger.  Lift a corner up to check if you are applying enough color.  Remove the screen and wash with water.  Do not let the color dry in the screen. This will cause damage to the screen
  6. Use a mosaic round stencil and use a 2” mini foam roller to roll lightly over half of the stencil, in the sky area with  SC-30 Blue Dawn.
  7. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-30 Blue Dawn to the back of the food canoe.  Allow to dry.
  8. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the piece or dip in Clear Glaze of Choice.  Allow to dry.
  9. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
