Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Pencil lines to create the different areas for color on the cat's body.
  3. Brush three coats of SC-45 My Blue Heaven to the light blue areas, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel to the orange, and SC-27 Sour Apple to the bright green area. Use CB-106 Script Liner and CB-604 Soft Fan to apply.
  4. Tape the various sections to avoid over stamping. Stamp ST-126 Dots and Squiggles to the orange stripe with SC-15 Tuxedo, apply with a sponge on a stick to the stamp.
  5. Use a pattern from ST-100 Game Board to stamp SC-26 Green Thumb to the Sour Apple area. Stamp SC-12 Moody Blue using ST-133 Wood Grain Stamp to the My Blue Heaven color next to the tail.
  6. Pencil a checkerboard pattern on the bisque section of the sweater, use CB-308 Square Shader to apply two even coats of SC-29 Blue Grass to every other square. Stamp over the blue squares with ST-129 Mini Fern using SC-12 Moody Blue.
  7. Thicken SC-29 Blue Grass with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife, with the shiny side up, screen the chevron pattern over the My Blue Heaven area of the sweater.
  8. Use SG-404 Blue to shade the cats face, ears, legs, and tail with CB-106 Script Liner, thin SG-404 Blue. Outline the sweater and the checkerboard with SG-404 Blue.
  9. Use SG-403 Red for the cat's mouth, SG-4-1 Black for the whiskers and nose, eyes are SG-410 Bright Blue, outlines with SG-401 Black, including eyelashes, use CB-110 Liner.
  10. Brush on two coats of NTBR Clear One Brushing with CB-604 Soft Fan to the outside of the cat and FN-034 Big Sky Blue to the inside of the cat. Alternatively, you may dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze.
  11. Fire to cone 05/06.
