  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 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-203 Dry Champagne to the pages of the book.
  3. Using a CB-604 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-009 Black to the jacket and spine of the book.
  4. While the FN-009 Black is still damp, using a CB-604 Soft Fan, apply 1 liberal coat of SG-201 over the FN-009 Black.
  5. When the shine is off of the SG-201 Black Cobblestone use a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan to apply an irregular coat of the following colors to one book vase; SC-25 Crackerjack Brown, the second book vase SC-81 Cinnamon Stick and the third book vase SC-14 Java Bean. The goal is to apply one coat over the SG-201 Black Cobblestone to change the color from black to the Stroke & Coat color.  The cobblestone will give the illusion of leather. Allow to dry.
  6. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick load the sponge with SC-15 Tuxedo. Tap the SC-15 Tuxedo onto the ST-338 Deco Diamonds Stamp then press the stamp gently onto the spine of each book. Allow to dry.
  7. Do Not Clear Glaze.
  8. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
