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 FN055 Bubble Gum 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 3 coats of FN001 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. Do not trace the details of the leaves just the basic shape.
  5. Using a CB404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of FN055 Bubble Gum to each flower petal.
  6. When dry, take the pattern and cut out the shape. Place the pattern over the painted flower and trace the flower petals using the AC230 Clay Carbon Paper under the pattern.
  7. Using a CB308 #8 Flat Shader, side load with FN025 Raspberry Whip and shade the lower section of each flower petal.
  8. Using a CB404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of FN058 Apple Green to the leaves.
  9. Using a CB308 #8 Flat Shader, side load some FN020 Medium Green and shade the leaves.
  10. Using a CB202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 2 coats of FN002 Yellow to the center of the flower.
  11. Using a CB308 #8 Flat Shader, side load with some FN057 Periwinkle and shade around the outer edge of the flower and leaves on the background.
  12. Using a CB110 #10/0 Liner, outline and detail the flower and the leaves with EZ047 Thundercloud Grey. Allow to dry!
  13. Stilt and fire to cone 06/05.
