Project Info


  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 FN-004 Red to the entire piece. Allow to dry.
  3. Using ¼" Masking Tape, create a plaid design on the border.
  4. Using AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper and a pencil, trace on the dog pattern.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan or CB-406 #6 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the border. While the color is still damp, remove the masking tape.
  6. Using a CB-308 - #8 Flat Shader, block in the dog with 1 coat of SC-15 Tuxedo. Using the same brush, apply a 2nd coat - towards the edges keep the brush straight up and down, and pull in from the pattern to the outside, creating a feathered look for the hair around the edges of the dog.
  7. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the edges and larger stripes on the blanket and dog's collar.
  8. Using a CB-406 #6 Pointed Round, block in the holly leaves with 2 coats of SC-78 Lime Light.

  10. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner and CB-106 #6 Script Liner, add stripes to the blanket, collar and border with SC-78 Lime Light. Add more stripes with SC-16 Cotton Tail, then a smaller accent stripe with SC-25 Crackerjack Brown. Using the brush handle, add holly berries on the dogs collar with SC-74 Hot Tamale. Using the brush handle, add dots to the blanket's edge with SC-25 Crackerjack Brown.

  12. Add pinecones to the pine branches. Using a CB-406 #6 Pointed Round, load in SC-14 Java Bean and tip in SC-25 Crackerjack Brown, and pull in small strokes from the base towards the top, letting the strokes overlap to create the pinecones.
  13. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, load with SC-16 Cotton Tail and add a small hightlight to the base of each stroke on the pinecone to look like snow.
  14. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to block in the eye. Add a hightlight to the dog's nose with SC-16 Cotton Tail. Add the dog's iris to the eye with SC-15 Tuxedo.
