July 4th Pickup

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. On 04 Bisque, remove loose dust with a dry brush and make sure the inside is free from dust.  For the headlights, drill out the headlight bisque to fit the bulbs with a dremel using bit #562 Tile Cutting Bit.
  2. Slightly thin FN-009 Black and pour inside the truck bed. Turn to coat then drain out the excess glaze.
  3. Use the Pointed Round or Script Liner with SC-35 Gray Hare to create a wide shade around all of the detail of the truck. Let dry. Shade again with a more narrow angle using SC-15 Tuxedo.
  4. Use the Script Liner to apply three coats of SC-60 Silver Lining to the grill and bumper. Let dry. Thin SC-15 Tuxedo to the consistency of water and brush over the grill and bumper to an antique. R back some of the black with the side of the brush to expose the Silver Lining on the high areas of the grill and bumper.
  5. Use the Script Liner to apply SC-15 Tuxedo around the edges of the windows. Add SC-60 Silver Lining to the brush to streak the centers of the windows to make the glass look transparent. Apply two coats. Use the same brush to apply two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the tires.
  6. Use the Liner with thinned SC-15 Tuxedo to outline the lines on the truck.
  7. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze or use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze to the truck.
  8. Fire to cone 06/05.
  9. Push the headlights through the dremeled holes, hot glue around the opening, push the bulb through the hole to secure.  We find it is easier to wrap a piece of stiff wire around the headlight wire. This will allow you to easily direct the bulb through the hole.
  10. Adhere the 4th of July Stickers to the truck.
