  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats SC-27 Sour Apple over SW-106 Alabaster. Make sure to brush the Stroke & Coat in horizontal bands.
  4. Using a palette knife, mix UG-50 Jet Black with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium, adding small amounts to get the consistency of peanut butter.
  5. Using your index finger, rub the mixture, through the screen image onto the mug. Note: The same screen can be used right after screening.
  6. Allow the image to completely dry.
  7. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SW-002 Matte Clear to the outside of the mug. Take care to slightly overlap the Alabaster/Stroke & Coat with the SW-002 Matte Clear.
