Never More Canvas

Designer: William Pulse



  1. Use a moistened Synthetic Sponge to wipe down the ware to remove any dust.
  2. Use a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon to transfer the basic shape of the moon and raven.
  3. Starting with the left side of the moon, use CB-404Pointed Round to start dabbing in SC-55 Yella Bout It, transition to SC-42 Butter Me Up as you move up towards the top of the moon around the Raven. Towards the middle top of the moon introduce SC-24 Dandelion. As you move around to the left side of the moon bring in some SC-50 Orange Ya Happy then to some SC-25 Crackerjack Brown and finally some SC-81 Cinnamon Stix about middle of the moon. Then start reversing the order of the colors towards the bottom of the moon where it meets the Raven. Repeat this step for the applications of the colors and blending them as you apply each coat. Work the colors back and forth over one another to aid in the blending process. Slightly extend the color past the moon’s edge as well.
  4. If necessary, redefine the outline of the moon and Raven. Apply 3 coats of SC-33 Fruit of the Vine to the Raven using CB-406Pointed Round.
  5. Trace the details in the Raven and lettering onto the ware. The detail in the bird excluding the beak and pupil are reversed from the pattern. i.e., the markings in the bird as shown would be what you don’t paint. They will show as highlights in the bird. Paint in the beak outlines and detail and the pupil excluding the highlight with SC-15 Tuxedo using CB-110 Liner. Apply 1 coat of slightly thinned SC-15 Tuxedo to the bird using CB-110 Liner or CB-404Pointed Round. Carry a full brush of color when painting. Start at the head and work backwards and downward omitting the highlights in the Raven. If you paint the brushstrokes as the feathers would lay, any thin applications of color will show hints of the purple underneath further enhancing the Raven.
  6. Apply 2-3 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the background around the Moon and Raven using CB-106 Script Liner, CB-404Pointed Round and CB-602 Soft Fan.
  7. If you are painting in the lettering, use AB-706 Filbert loaded with SC-81 Cinnamon Stix. Use CB-110 Liner to outline the lettering with a fine line of thinned SC-15 Tuxedo. Let dry.
  8. Shake well SG-701 Star Dust Clear. The specks have a tendency to settle in the jar. To the background excluding the moon and Raven apply 1 good even coat of SG-701 Star Dust Clear using CB-404Pointed Round and CB-602 Soft Fan. Let dry.
  9. Stilt and fire the ware to Shelf Cone 05-06.
