Instructions

1. In wet greenware cut out the windows with an Exacto knife, clean and fire to cone 04.

2. Thin slightly SC-15 Tuxedo brush over the chimneys with CB-604 Soft Fan, sponge off the excess leaving the glaze in the detail.

3.  Brush the roofs with SC-36 Irish Luck, leave it heavy in the detail and around the edges, wipe back to show the detail in the thatch.

4. Brush the doors with 2-3 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale, brush SC-73 Candy Apple Red into the door for a highlight.

5.  Brush the trim and shutters of the house with 2 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale, use CB-106 Script Liner.  Brush one coat of SC-15 Tuxedo over the frames around the windows with CB-106 Script Liner.

6.  Float SC-15 Tuxedo in the shadow areas of the house use a dagger or CB-310 Flat Shader.

7.  Brush one coat of CG-750 Noel over the body of the house, keep the crystals to a minimum then brush over with one coat of S-2101 Clear to everything but the roof with CB-604 Soft Fan.

8.  Use CB-110 Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo to outline the planks of wood in the doors and shutters, and around the wood trim.

8.  Use a stiff brush or a palette knife to apply SG-302 Snowfall to the roofs, apply so that it looks like it is melting so some of the roofs are visible.

9.  Fire to cone 06.

10.  Select lace trim that is heavy and has open areas for the light to show threw. I purchased from JoAnn Fabrics. Use mod podge to stiffen the lace, dut to fit the windows, hot glue in place.  Use battery operated tea lights to light up.
