Instructions

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

2. Using the Clay Carbon Paper, trace the pattern onto the bisque.

3.  Use SG-401 Black to outline the vase and table.The lines should be a little thicker than normal. While the SG-401 is wet, spray with water to get the color to move.Hold the canvas vertically or to the side to get the color move in that direction. This gives a shadow effect.

4. Using the SG-401 Black, outline the flowers and stems again with thicker lines.Tip:  Work in sections so the glaze stays wet. Now spray the section with the water bottle to get the fuming or shading effect onto the canvas. 

5.  Flowers:  All of the flowers will use three colors: SG-403 Red, SG-407 Yellow and SG-408 Orange.  To fill in the flowers you will use both the bottle tip and the Script Liner. 

6.  Squeeze in the color, scribbling back and forth.Make sure and overlap the colors so the colors blend seamlessly versus hard stops. Use the Script Liner to blend edges.The flowers will have a textured and rough look, that’s what you want.

7.  Highlight the flower with SG-402 White over the color.

8.  Use SG-401 Black to add the center to the flowers.

9.  Continue to spray with water as you work the canvas while the color is wet.   The spraying tints the background from the color of the flower. 

5.  Scribble and brush in the leaves with SG-405 Green and SG-409 Green then streak with SG-403 Red.

6.  Scribble and brush out SG-410 Bright Blue in the background on the left side of the canvas. Refer to the picture.

7.  Use a plastic card to scrape on SG-401 Black onto the sides of the canvas. Fill in the open spots with a coat of SG-410 Bright Blue.

8. Clear glaze with either NT-ClR or brush two coats of NTBR Clear One Brushing to the canvas with the Soft Fan.

9.  Fire to cone 05/06.

Stroke & Coat Option:

This same project may be done with Stroke & Coat®.  Designer Liner moves and shades a little easier and only requires one coat due to the heavy pigmentation.  Stroke & Coat will fire smother but still have a pleasing effect.
