Holiday Fairy Awning Window

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  • Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  • Trace on the candy cane shapes on the top.
  • On a palette, thicken SC-74 Hot Tamale with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife. Thicken to the consistency of peanut butter.
  • Place the shiny side of DSS-0105 Stripes, using the small size, on an angle over the candy canes, rub the thickened Hot Tamale over the screen.
  • Sponge off excess stripes from around the canes, brush on one coat of Hot Tamale over the red stripes to deepen the color.
  • Wash a thin coat of SC-97 Cant-elope around the candy canes, leave spaces for thinned SC-31 The Blues, repeat under the roof area.
  • Thin SC-97 Cant-elope to brush over the windows, remove from the centers of the top windows, with a damp sponge.
  • Thicken SG-405 Green as above in step 4. Screen the pine needles with the shiny side down, rub the thickened SG-405 Green over the pine needle to fill in around the candy canes, and under the roof.
  • Screen the small bulb in the windows, from DSS-0133 Merry Christmas with thickened SC-15 Tuxedo.
  • Brush two thinned coats of SC-27 Sour Apple to the planter box with CB-604 Soft Fan.
  • Brush the flowers with 2 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale with CB-106 Script Liner dot the centers with SG-407 Yellow, outline centers with SC-15 Tuxedo. Sgaffito the petals with the clean-up tool while the petals are still wet.
  • Brush the leaves with two coats of SG-405 Green when the last coat is damp, use a clean-up tool to score a line in the center of the leaves.
  • Float SG-405 Green around the petals and leaves on the planter box with CB-106 Script Liner.
  • Tree trunks are SC-48 Camel Back, streak with SC-90 Elephant Ears, two coats, use CB-106 Script Liner.
