Retro Snowman

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Use the Soft Fan to apply three coats of SC-91 Seabreeze to the jacket. Apply three coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the mittens and hat band.
  3. Use a sponge-on-a-stick to apply SC-31 The Blues to the ST-343 Deco Circles Stamp, the press onto the jacket.
  4. Apply one coat of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the snowman’s body.
  5. To shade, float SC-12 Moody Blue around the jacket, the snowman’s body and scarf.
  6. Punch out medium paper snowflakes – you will be using the negative space of the snowflake. Wet the area of the jacket for the snowflake, press the paper onto the jacket then press with a paper towel to remove gaps. Brush two coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale over the open space of the snowflake, remove the paper.
  7. Repeat the paper masking process to stick the large snowflakes onto the lower part of the snowman’s body. Sponge two coats of SC-91 Seabreeze and SC-31 The Blues on the open snowflake area, going toward the edges. Remove the paper.
  8. Use the Pointed Round to apply two coats of SG-302 Snowfall to the scarf. Scratch detail lines into the Snowfall to reveal the Moody Blue.
  9. Use the Script Liner and Liner to apply two coats of SC-50 Orange Ya Happy to the nose and SC-31 The Blues to the eyes. Use a sponge to apply SC-2 Melon-Choly to the cheeks. Apply two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the hat and buttons.
  10. Apply two coats of NTBR Clear Brushing Glaze to the snowman, except for the Snowfall area.
  11. Fire to cone 06.
  12. Brush the scarf with a gloss or matte sealer, sprinkle on glitter.
