  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-011 Light Blue to the duck, avoiding the beak and eyes.
  3. Using a pencil, draw circles of varying sizes randomply about the piece. This will be where the flowers are placed.
  4. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, load the brush with SC-16 Cotton Tail and dip the tip of the brush in SC-13 Grapel. Apply a lot of pressure when you place the brush on the piece and lift as you pull through the brush stroke. Repeat this step until you’ve made it all the way around the circle then us SC-6 Sunkissed as the center of the flower.
  5. Repeat the previous step, but also using SC-11 Blue Yonder and SC-75 Orange-A-Peel until the desired amount of flowers has been achieved.
