Instructions

  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Slightly thin some S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing Glaze with water (3:1) and roll to the inside of the vase. Remove any drips from the outside with the BT-910 Synthetic Sponge.
  3. Apply strips of equally spaced MC-001 6mm Masking Tape to the sides of MB1336 – Asian Teapot
  4. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo black to the sides, handle, spout, bottom and lid of the teapot.
  5. Carefully remove the strips of tape and let dry completely.
  6. Cut out two paper teacups from the pattern.
  7. Using CB 604 #4 Fan Brush and S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing Glaze, ‘glue’ down the paper teacup with the glaze so it adheres to the teapot. Repeat on the other side.
  8. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-96 Aquward to the front and back of the teapot.
  9. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick, load the sponge with SC-11 Blue Yonder, tap the glaze onto the MT-004 Swirls Stamp then press the stamp gently onto the front of the teapot. Repeat on back.
  10. Position the Eddy Rose Stencil on the front of the teapot and use the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick 1 ¼ Inch round to apply one coat of SC-31 The Blues through the stencil over the entire front. Use an up and down dabbing motion to apply the glaze. Remove Stencil and paper teacup. Repeat on back of teapot
  11. Using the CB-408 #8 Round brush, double load the brush with SC-16 Cotton Tail and apply 3 coats to the teacup. Repeat on back of teapot.
  12. Using the CB-106 #6 Script Liner and SC-15 Tuxedo, paint the black parts onto the teacups on the front and back of teapot using the photo as a guide
  13. Using SG-401 Black Designer liner, draw the steam swirls coming up from the teacup. Repeat on back.
  14. Load AC-211 Sponge on a Stick 3/8” Round with SC-16 Cotton Tail and gently press onto the lid, handle and spout to make polka dots. Go over each dot two more times to ensure opaque coverage.
  15. Using CB 604 #4 Fan Brush, apply 2 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing Glaze to the sides of the teapot over the black and white stripes.
  16. Stilt the lid and teapot, fire to shelf cone 06.
