Cactus Collection

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Thin slightly FN-50 Coral pour to the inside of the barrel cactus and the tall cactus, turn to coat, pour out excess, drain.
  3. For the tall cactus, set it up so the color can drain off. Brush on 2-3 coats of SC-43 Lettuce Alone thinned with water. Thin enough so when applied with CB-604 Soft Fan, it runs off the cactus.
  4. Next color is SC-9 Jaded, applied the same as in step 3, apply two coats.
  5. Next color is SC-8 Just Froggy, thinned applied just in the v sections of the cactus use a dagger brush or the CB-106 Script LIner.
  6. Thin SC-15 Tuxedo, shade the crease in the sections of the cactus.
  7. Barrel cactus is painted in the same manner as the tall cactus, the first color used is SC-93 Honeydew List, the second color is SC-9 Jaded and the last color is SC-43 Lettuce Alone.
  8. Cactus Tray, starts with SC-78 Limelight, the second color is SC-7 Leapin’ Lizard, floated with SC-8 Just Froggy in the creases. Brush three coats of FN-20 Medium Green on the back.
  9. Fire to cone 05/06.
