Instructions

  1. Pour CD-1366 Bottle Cap mold ¼” thick. Refer to casting instructions.

  2. Once it is firm enough to handle, use the sponge to smooth down any casting lines.

  3. Fire to cone 04.

  4. Using the Soft Fan with SC-37 Ivory Tower, apply 2 coats to the front and sides of the bottle cap. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  5. Use the scissors to cut out the lettering, tiki cups and outline of the drink from the pattern. Dip them in water and stick them to the front of the bottle cap. Place as pictured.

  6. Using the Soft Fan with SC-37 Ivory Tower, apply 1 coat to the front and sides of the bottle cap. If the patterns are coming up, rewet them with a damp sponge.

  7. After the glaze is completely dry, use MC-001 6mm Low Track Masking Tape to make 4 vertical lines going down the front of the bottle cap. Try to space them evenly. Now make a horizontal line through each of the 5 vertical sections. Make them staggered.

  8. Squeeze a small amount of SC-10 Teal Next Time onto the palette. Thin with water. Using the Soft Fan, apply a very light coat over the front of the bottle cap.

  9. Squeeze 1 TBS of SC-10 Teal Next Time onto the palette. Take the ST-133 Wood Grain Stamp and place it design-side up. Take the sponge on a stick and dab it into the glaze. Blot off any excess onto the bare portion of the palette, then sponge the stamp. Take the stamp and press it onto one of the sections created by the tape. Repeat until all sections have been stamped.

  10. Use the X-ACTO knife to peel up all of the paper patterns. Do this before the glaze has completely dried.

  11. Using the Script Liner with SC-97 Cant-elope, SC-88 Tu Tu Tango and SC-6 Sunkissed, apply 3 coats to the lettering as shown. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  12. Using the Script Liner with SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and SC-13 Grapel, apply 3 coats to the tiki heads as shown. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  13. Use the drink pattern with the AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper to trace the details of the drink. Using the Detail Liner with SC-88 Tu Tu Tango, SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-26 Green Thumb and SC-37 Ivory Tower, apply 3 coats to the details of the drink as pictured. Using the Script Liner with SC-48 Camel Back, apply 3 coats to the cup. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

  14. On the DSS-0147 Island Screen, locate the tiki head. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with excess screen around the edges.

  15. Squeeze about 2 TBS of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the palette. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more silkscreen medium or glaze.

     

  16. Place the tiki head over each of the 3 previously glazed locations. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed silkscreen medium and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward. Repeat for the 2 other tiki heads.

  17. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, outline the lettering and drink.

  18. Using the Script Liner with SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and SC-13 Grapel, apply 3 coats to the indents in the side of the bottle cap. Use the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo to outline the indents.

  19. Fire to cone 06.
