Instructions

 

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan brush apply three coats of FN-001 White to the front of the tray.  
  3. Place the SL-448 Doily Stencil on the tray. Using the foam roller roll over the SL-448 Doily Stencil lightly and in different directions with SC-6 Sunkissed. Randomly place on the tray and fill in with the stencil. It will be a shadow or background design.
  4. Place the SL-450 Lg. Poinsettia stencil in the middle of the tray, with the pencil trace around the outside edge of the last row of petals. Using the CB-106 Script Liner apply two coats of SC-6 Sunkissed to the pattern and it is okay to go outside of the lines for a yellow shadow. Let dry.
  5. The SL-450 Poinsettia Stencil needs to be flat and flush against the tray. So, with the CB-604 Soft Fan Brush wet the SC-6 Sunkissed pointsetta with water or a thin coat of SC-6 Sunkissed. Place the Poinsettia Stencil on the damp surface. Use a paper towel to press the stencil into the glaze and remove excess moisture.
  6. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan Brush apply two coats of CG-756 Firecracker to the stencil, remove the stencil as soon as the glaze sets up enough so the glaze will not move once the stencil is removed.
  7. Pencil in the leaves. Using the CB-106 Script Liner, apply two coats of SC-26 Green Thumb.  
  8. Shade the outside of the leaves with SC-36 Irish Luck, use CB-106 Script Liner.
  9. With the CB-110 Liner vein the leaves with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  10. Place the Poinsettia Stencil on the open areas of the tray. With the foam roller, roll over lightly to avoid bleed, with SC-87 Ruby Slippers.
  11. Pencil leaves, two on each flower, brush with one coat of SC-26 Green Thumb.  Shade the sides with SC-36 Irish Luck. Vein the leaves with SC-36 Irish Luck use CB-110 Liner.
  12. Use a sponge to apply SC-26 Green Thumb to ST-116 Floral Flourish Stamp.  Stamp the design randomly on the tray as an accent.  
  13. Dot the center of the Firecracker flower with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  14. Using the CB-106 Soft Fan Brush, apply three coats of FN-015 Brick Red to the back of the tray and edges.
  15. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
