Fanciful Foundations Tile

Designer: Bailie Benson



  1. Wipe down tile with a damp sponge.
  2. Using your fan brush, apply three coats of FN-11.
  3. Allow to dry.
  4. With a script liner, create large swooping arcs with FN-42.
  5. Connect the arcs to form bending oblong feather shapes.
  6. Fill in with FN-42.
  7. When dry, add FN-36 to the center of the feathers, starting at one point and extending almost to the far end. Feather the color out for a fuzzy effect.
  8. Add accent lines of FN-37 to the feather at the tip and a few in the main part of the feather.
  9. Using the rounded back of a brush, dip into FN-49.
  10. Apply dots to the negative space around the feathers. Try to keep consistent spacing.
  11. Allow to dry.
  12. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
