Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Familiarize yourself with silkscreen instructions. Mix SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silk Screen Medium using a palette knife.  Mix to the consistency of peanut butter.
  3. On a plain piece of paper create a template of the snowman from DSS-106 Winter Holiday.  Let dry.
  4. Cut out the shape of the snowman, minus the stick arms.
  5. While holding the paper template in place on the tile, use AC-213 Sponge on a Stick to lightly ponce SC-11 Blue Yonder over the entire tile.  Lightly pouncing will help prevent defined, circular patterns from the sponge - which we are seeking to avoid. Remove the paper template.
  6. Place snowman screen on your tile and apply the Tuxedo paste to the screen; remove and wash the screen.
  7. Using CB-110 #10/0 Liner apply one coat of SC-74 Hot Tamale into the scarf stripes and dot the berries in the hat.
  8. Using CB-110 #10/0 Liner apply one coat of SC-75 Orange A Peel to the nose.
  9. Use AC-213 Sponge on a Stick to lightly dab SC-26 Green Thumb to the top area of the tile. We're not looking for solid coverage - use the image (above) for reference on how to apply Green Thumb.
  10. Place the pine cone sprig screen from DSS-111 Botanical leaves at the top of the tile. Apply the Tuxedo paste to the branch and needles portion of the screen.  Prepare a paste using SC-34 Down to Earth and apply this paste to the pine cone.
  11. Use a palette knife to apply SG-302 Snowfall to the snow area under the snowman.
  12. Apply two coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the tile excluding the Snowfall area.
  13. Fire to cone 05/06.
