Self Portrait Peg People

Designer: Kathy Cano-Murillo


  1. Remove any dust or debris from your peg person with a sponge.
  2. Use a pencil to lightly sketch your design:
    1. Hair line
    2. Facial features (many peg people do not have mouths or nose, some do)
    3. Clothing lines
    4. Arms to hang down (not all peg people have arms, your choice)
  3. Start by painting three coats of Cashew Later on the head, neck and arms.
  4. Add three coats of the hair color, following your sketch.
  5. Add the glaze for your clothing – it can be a dress or pants and a shirt. Three coats.
  6. Get creative and use contrasting glaze colors for adding pockets, buttons, patterns for the outfit.
  7. Use Designer Liner to add dots for the eyes and outline the clothing.
  8. Use the pencil to lightly sketch out your word of the year.
  9. Apply White French Dimensions over the pencil lines of your word.
  10. Fire to cone 06.
