Project Info




  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean Sponge and wipe Bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 3 Coats of SC-20 Cashew Later to the face and hands, avoiding the eyes.
  3. While the third coat is still wet on the face, brush in 1 coat of SC-2 Melon-Choly on the cheeks.
  4. Remove any Glaze from the eyes.
  5. Using a CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-2 Melon-Choly on the lower lip.
  6. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, thin SC-34 Down to Earth and apply to the hair and the basket. Apply 2 Coats of SC-42 Butter Me Up to the hair and SC-51 Poo Bear to the basket.
  7. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 3 Coats of SC-80 Basketball to the hat.
  8. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner and a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of SC-32 Bluebeard to the dress.
  9. With the small flower paper punch, punch out some small flowers and scatter them on the dress by brushing the spot for the flower with water then placing the paper flower on to the wet spot. Press down with fingers.
  10. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply a couple of Coats of SC-31 The Blues mixed with some SC-16 Cotton Tail to slightly lighten. Brush over the creases in the dress and shadow areas only once so these areas remain deeper then the rest of the dress.
  11. Brush in some SC-11 Blue Yonder so the dress has a variegated blue look.
