Instructions


Martini Glass
  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Punch out 6 hearts from a small heart punch.
  3. With a pencil trace the hearts on the base of the martini glass.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale, brushing slightly past the penciled in line of the heart.
  5. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply a heavy coat of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the back of the paper cut out hearts. Place the glazed side down on the painted heart on the base. Press into place. Remove any excess glaze with a damp sponge.
  6. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-001 White to the entire outside of the martini glass including the stem.
  7. Reglaze the area of the martini glass for the application of the scalloped bordered lace. Place the lace into the wet glaze and cut the lace to fit.
  8. Apply another coat of FN-001 White to the outside of the glass, including over the lace area.
  9. Remove the paper hearts at the base when the glaze looses its shine.
  10. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale on the lace area. Remove the lace when the SC-74 Hot Tamale loses its shine. Let dry.
  11. Cut out a heart shape from paper and pencil in 3 of these hearts on the upper part of the martini glass.
  12. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the hearts.
  13. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, float some shadow under the lace with thinned SC-60 Silver Lining.
  14. Use SA-001 White Accent to dot around the hearts at the top, and in a random pattern on the base. Use SA-001 Red Accent to dot the stem.
  15. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats FN-004 Red to the inside of the martini glass. Let dry.
  16. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
