Cobblestone Llama Plaque

Designer: William Pulse



  1. Wipe down the bisque with a moistened BT-910 Synthetic Sponge to remove any dust and debris from the ware.
  2. Using CB-604 Soft Fan to apply 3 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the blanket on the Llama.
  3. Apply 3 coats of SC-54 Vanilla Dip to the remaining portions of the Llama using CB-604 Soft Fan.
  4. Place some SC-92 Café Ole’ onto the Pallet/Tile. Using CB-604 Soft fan loaded with water, tip one side of the brush with color and wet shade around the blanket, between the legs, around the tassel neck decoration, tail, around the eyes and top mane hair as well as the contours of the hair.
  5. Use a pencil to sketch on the diamond pattern onto the blanket. Space the diamond pattern to where there are three half diamonds along the bottom edge of the blanket that are evenly spaced. Work from the bottom edge upwards to complete the diamonds in the pattern. Sketch in a line on the inner portion of the diamonds. Then sketch in a smaller diamond in the center of each diamond.
  6. Apply 2 coats of SC-88 TuTu Tango to the inner line on the diamonds using CB-202 Detail Liner.
  7. Apply 2-3 coats of SC-76 Cara-bein Blue to the inner diamonds using the same CB-202 Detail Liner.
  8. Using a BT-910 Synthetic Sponge to apply some thinned SC-14 Java Bean to the muzzle/ nose area on the Llama. Trail the color slightly down the neck from the nose area. Darken the nose area with some thinned SC-34 Down To Earth. Keep this color very light on the nose area.
  9. Paint in the iris of the eye with SC-14 Java Bean using CB-220 Detail Liner. Apply a line of SC-88 TuTu Tango to shade the iris of the eye. Paint in the pupil of the eye with SC-15 Tuxedo using CB-110 Liner. Apply a highlight of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the pupils. Apply a fine line along the bottom edge of the eye and a slightly heavier line to the eyelid with a couple of fine lashes. Apply lines to the nostrils and mouth area using SC-15 Tuxedo.
  10. Apply one coat of SC-2 Melon-Choly to the inner ear using CB-404 Pointe Round. Use a sponge to apply color to the cheeks of the Llama. The color should be strongest along the cheek ridge and fade out to nothing.
  11. Apply thinned SC-8 Just Froggy to the rope tie around the neck using CB-404 Pointed Round. Apply thinned SC-9 Jaded, SC-11 Blue Yonder, SC-88 TuTu Tango and SC-97 Cant-elope to the tassels in an alternating pattern. Darken the lines in the rope and tassels with the appropriate colors using CB-110 Liner.
  12. To the fringe along the blanket edge, apply thinned SC-88 TuTu Tango using CB-404 Pointed Round. Color should be darker in the separations in the fringe.
  13. Apply thinned SC-34 Down to Earth to the hooves on the Llama using CB-404 Pointed Round. Shade the crease and upper edge of the hoof with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  14. Shake and Stir CG-981 Fruity Freckles. Place some color onto a tile with the crystals well mixed into the color. Add some AC-310 Silk Screen Medium to thicken the color. A few pinches is all that is needed to make it thick enough to hold its shape when applied. Load the color into AC-220 Detailer bottle with plastic tip and using Scissors to cut the tip to about 1/8” opening. The hole should be large enough for the color with crystals to flow out of the bottle when applying the color. Apply the thickened crystal glaze color to the diamond pattern. Watch how the color trails out of the bottle to ensure that there are enough crystals being applied. The color should stand about 1/8” to 1/4” in height. Let dry. If there are any areas in the line of crystal glaze that doesn’t have some crystal in it, apply some from the bottle with a brush. Let dry.
  15.  Condition a CB-404 Pointed Round with some liquid detergent. Apply 1 good coat of AC-302 Wax Resist to the tassels, hoofs and blanket edge where it meets the Llama. Wash the brush immediately after with warm water and liquid detergent.
  16. Apply 2-3 coats of SG-202 White cobblestone to the to the Llama excluding the face area using CB-604 Soft Fan and CB-404 Pointed Round. When one coat of glaze has dried to a dull look, apply the next coat of glaze. Do not let the glaze to completely dry between application. Trail the glaze thinner up the neck and do not apply any on the face area. The heavier the application of the Cobblestone will create larger break up pattern to the glaze. Too thin of the glaze will not show up as a breaking up in the glaze surface for contrast over the Vanilla Dip.
  17. Stilt and Fire the piece to Shelf Cone 05/06
