Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, brush 2-3 coats of SC-34 Down To Earth to the plate. This color must be dry before proceeding.
  3. Pencil in 2 circles for the flowers and smaller circles for the centers. Also pencil in the stem and leaves.
  4. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush the outer circle shape for the petals with 1 coat of SC-16 Cotton Tail, this will help the SC-6 Sunkissed color show up. Brush over the Cotton Tail with 2 coats of SC-6 Sunkissed, use in a "press and lift" motion for the petals.
  5. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush 2 coats of SC-75 Orange A Peel to the center of the flowers.
  6. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush the stem and leaf with 1 coat of SC-27 Sour Apple and 1 coat of SC-26 Green Thumb.
  7. While these colors are damp, use the sgraffito tool to outline the petals, and to make circles in the orange centers, also small lines at the base of the petals.
  8. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan you work on the top half of the plate for the blue back ground.  Starting at the middle of the plate you will work toward the top of the plate by applying 1 coat of SC-31 The Blues, but stop about 1 1/2 inches from the rim.  Then in the middle of the SC-31 use the CB-604 #4 Soft Fan brush and apply 1 coat of SC-76 Cara-Bein blue over the SC-31 The Blues all the way to the edge of the plate.  Repeat with one more coat.  This gives you subtle variation of blue
