  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-76 Cara-Bein-Blue to the inside of the book vase.
  3. Using a CB-425 ½” Oval, apply SC-14 Java Bean sporadically to the outside of the book vase in an up and down brush stroke. While it is still wet add SC-6 Sunkissed in the same manor. Blend the colors in some areas. You may choose to go back and add more of the SC-14 Java Bean until the color is satisfactory. Allow to dry.
  4. Place some SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Using a palette knife mix to the consistency of thick peanut butter otherwise it will bleed. If the mix is to thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium or if to thick add more SC-15 Tuxedo to thin.  You can also use SG-401 Black Designer liner for more color saturation
