  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

  3. Refer to the picture for color placement. Start with SC-6 Sunkissed on the right side of the sound hole. Add SC-16 Cotton Tail to stroke next to the sound hole for a highlight. As you work down the right side, add SC-75 Orange A Peel to the brush leave the brush strokes show. Add in SC-97 Cant-elope to the lower edge, then a spot of SC-11 Blue Yonder. Use CB-106 Script Liner, 2-3 Coats.

Brush SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the area under the strings, and brush into the Tuxedo area as pictured, let the brush strokes show. Apply 1 heavy coat over the Tuxedo, and 2-3 coats of the Candy Apple Red, brush the red into the Orange A Peel.

  8. Brush the background and sides with 3 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo, leaving a narrow space of bisque on the side of the guitar. Use CB-604 #4 Soft Fan.
