Camo Tree

Designer: Macia Roullard



  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Trace on the pattern.
  3. Punch out 5 round shapes from the circle punch.
  4. Using the RB-106 Script Liner apply 1 coat of SC-24 Dandelion to the plate where the ornament will go.  Then paint one coat of SC-24 Dandelion to the paper dot.  Press the dot onto the painted spot on the plate.  Use a sponge to wipe back any excess glaze that squeezes out.
  5. Place SL-441 Spots Stencil on the plate. Use a sponge on a stick to apply a soft coat of SC-65 Peri-Twinkle to the stencil. It is a light application of glaze for a slight background, not solid coverage. applied to a curved area press on the stencil to flatten then use a press a twist motion with the sponge on a stick. Stay away from the traced tree pattern.
  6. Fill a AC-220 Detailer Bottle with SC-73 Candy Apple Red.  Fill in the detail of the tree and the trunk with the bottle of glaze.
  7. Remove the paper circles. Remove paper before the glaze is dry so the edges do not chip.
  8. When the red glaze is dry silkscreen the bell onto the yellow dot.  Using a palette knife mix SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium  to the consistency of peanut butter.  Use the small bell ornament from DSS-0133 Merry Christmas. With the shiny side down, rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen in the space left from the paper circle shapes.
  9. Fill in with SC-73 Candy Apple Red around the ornaments, as the circle shape may have been a tad larger than the silkscreen.
  10. Brush two coats of SC-24 Dandelion over the star.  Use the RB-110 Detail Liner to outline the star  with SC-15 Tuxedo and add a hook to the ornament so it looks like it is attached to the tree and outline the star.
  11. Optional:  Float a shadow under the tree with RB-106 Script Liner use SC-73 Hot Tamale.
  12. Stilt and fire to cone 05/06.
