Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Add a color of gel food coloring to UG-501 White to tint. On a palette, mix the tinted UG-501 White with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to thicken to the consistency of peanut butter. 
  3. Using the peacock from DSS-0109 Aviary - Large Birds, align the image in the center of the plate, grain side up. For color placement, rub the tinted, thickened UG-501 White mixture over the image to screen onto SB-118 12" Oval Platter.
  4. Using flowers from DSS-0112 Flowers, align the flower image on the border of the platter, as shown. Using the same tinted, thickened UG-501 White mixture, screen flowers along the platter boarder. 
    • Note: It may be necessary to clean the screen in-between screening. Refer to the Silkscreen Instructions for further information.
  5. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SG-407 Yellow mixed with SG-408 Orange for the center of the flowers. Apply 1 coats of SG-408 Orange to the remainder of the flower.
  6. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SG-409 Bright Green to the stems and leaves.
  7. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SG-410 Bright Blue to the peacock "eyes of the feathers" and the remainder of the tail feathers brush 1 coat SG-409 Bright Green.
  8. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush 1 coat of SG-410 Bright Blue to the peacock's body.
  9. On a palette, with a palette knife, mix SG-401 Black with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to thicken to the consistency of peanut butter.
