Faceted Trees in Green Ombre

Designer: Marcia Roullard



1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Using the RB-144 Soft Fan Brush apply two coats of CG-750 Noel to the entire tree (tall tree).  For the smaller tree brush on two coats of CG-963 Lemon Lime to the entire tree.

3. Both trees: Leave the very top section of the branches as is. To create the ombre look you will add and blend colors to sections of the tree. Estimate two rows of branches as a section. When applying the next section of color overlap the previous color for a seamless transition. Using the Soft Fan, apply two coats of SC-93 Honeydew List to the next 2 1/2 rows. Apply two coats of SC-27 Sour Apple to the next 2 1/2 rows and two coats of SC-8 Just Froggy to the last 1 1/2 rows.

4. Base of Tree: Use the Script Liner to apply three coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale.

5. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
