Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace the pattern onto the bisque.
  3. Outline the pattern using SG-406 Brown Designer Liner allow this to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
  4. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, SC-48 Camel Back on the bottom of the cornucopia. Use SC-6 Sunkissed on the top highlighted sections of the cornucopia.
  5. Using a CB-200 #0 Detail, apply SC-23 Jack O’ Lantern to the bow and ribbon.
  6. The leaves around all the fruits and vegetables are a mixture of SC-41 Brown Cow, SC-27 Sour Apple, SC-43 Lettuce Alone, SC-74 Hot Tamale, and SC-50 Orange Ya Happy. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply two or three of any of the mentioned colors. Blend them as they meet on each leaf.
  7. The husk of the corn is SC-48 Camel Back and the corn is SC-6 Sunkissed.
  8. Using a CB-200 #0 Detail, the grapes are glazed SC-53 Purple Haze.
  9. The apples are SC 74- Hot Tamale at the bottom with SC-6 Sunkissed added as a highlight on the tops.
