Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. In a small cup, thin some FN056 Heather to the consistency of coffee cream. Pour the glaze slowly; roll the glaze around inside the vase pouring out the excess. Leave the vase upside down to fully drain. Allow to dry!
  3. Using a CB604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 4 coats of FN301 Marshmallow White to the outside of the vase. Allow to dry!
  4. Trace the pattern onto the piece using AC230 Clay Carbon Paper and a pencil. You may find it easy to cut slits in the pattern so that it will conform to the shape of the vase.
  5. Using a CB404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 1 coat of FN055 Bubble Gum to the pink flower petals. Load the brush again with FN055 Bubble Gun and side load in FN025 Raspberry Whip, stroke in each pink flower petal.
  6. Using a CB404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 1 coat of FN058 Apple Green to the green flower petals. Load the brush again with FN056 Apple Green and side load in FN021 Olive, stroke in each green flower petal.
  7. Using a CB404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 1 coat of FN059 Cashmere to the tan flower petals. Load the brush again with FN059 Cashmere and side load in FN060 Mushroom, stroke in each tan flower petal.

  9. Using a CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 1 coat of FN002 Yellow to each flower centers. Load the brush again with FN02 Yellow and side load in FN020 Medium Green, stroke in each flower center.
