  3. Roll out a few lengths of coil.
  4. Scratch and attach the coils in a design using circles and squares.
  5. Add a couple of clay dots for accents.
  6. Carve down small chunks in the base tile with the loop tool to add texture.
  7. Apply two coats of each color of Stroke & Coat (except for SC-15) to each individual section, trying not to have the same colors side by side. Mix SC-16 and SC-15 to create the gray color.
