Spring Bloom Birdhouse

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-301 Marshmallow to the outside of the birdhouse.
  3. Using a CB-202 #2 Detail Liner and the CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of any of the Stroke and Coats to apply the flowers. I made a random assortment using brushstrokes and did it all the way around the mug. See pattern for some inspiration for shapes.
  4. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-34 Down to Earth to outline the flowers.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-029 Rich Chocolate to the top and base of the birdhouse. Also, get the pearch and around the opening.
  6. Let dry completely.
  7. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
