Southwest Llama Plaque

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With the fan, brush on 2 coats of FN-001 White to the body of the llama, when dry, re-wet with water, stick on the various punches of dots to the white glaze. Press with a paper towel to set the paper dots.
  3. Use the fan to brush on 2-03 thinned coats of SC-86 Old lace over the body of the llama, remove the dots after the last coat.
  4. Brush the blanket with 2-3 coats of thinned SC-17 Cheeky Pinky with the fan brush.
  5. Sponge off the excess Cheeky Pinky from the fringe to antique. Clean off the old lace glaze from the tassel fringe around the neck, brush over with SC-17 Cheeky Pinky one coat.
  6. Brush inside the ears with two coats of SC-2 Melon-Choly, sponge on the cheeks.
  7. Float SC-48 Camel Back around the body to separate the legs and tail, around the face and tip the hair to create dimension using the Script Liner brush. Float heavier around the hooves.
  8. Thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium using a palette knife to the consistency of peanut butter.
  9. Use the screens from DSS-0140 Southwestern to create the pattern on the blanket, hold the shiny side down, with your finger, rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen. Use the cactus from DSS-0156 Drama Llama in the center of the blanket, thicken tinted with food coloring S-2101 Clear with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium, screen the cactus screen with this mix for a pattern.
  10. Brush two coats of SC-43 Lettuce Alone over the cactus, when dry, screen over the thickened Tuxedo. Brush into the blanket design with SC-11 Blue Yonder and some SC-43 Lettuce Alone, use the Detail Liner brush.
  11. Brush strokes of SC-43 Lettuce Alone, and SC-11 Blue Yonder into the fringe and tassels, when dry brush over with very thin SC-81 Cinnamon Stix to antique.
  12. Eyes are SC-48 Camel Back, pupil and outlines are SC-15 Tuxedo. Lightly outline with Tuxedo, around the fringe, tassels, blanket, mouth, legs, and hooves with the detail liner brush
  13. Dip in clear of your choice.
