Stamped Bird Canvas

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with a properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Create a one-inch border all the way around the canvas. Use the ruler to pencil the width of the ruler on the border.
  3. Tape off the first color, stamp using ST-116 Floral Flourish Stamp, tapped with SC-81 Cinnamon Stix, press to the taped off area.
  4. Continue around the border, stamp using the ST-113 Circulate Stamp tapped with SC-29 Blue Grass. Next, tape and stamp with SC-5 Tiger Tail using the ST-129 Mini Fern Stamp. Lastly, tape and stamp with SC-39 Army Surplus, using ST-131 Postage Stamp. Use a sponge on a stick to apply the glaze to the stamps.
  5. Use the ruler as a guide, to outline the center square, with SG-411 Purple.
  6. Use the C-604 Soft Fan Brush to apply three coats of the following colors over the stamped sections. FN-209 Floral Pink over the Cinnamon Stix, FN-214 Pastel Jade over SC-29 Blue Grass, FN-206 Lemon Ice over SC-5 Tiger Tail, FN-227 Celery over SC-39 Army Surplus, use CB-604 Soft Fan.
  7. Brush the center square with three coats of FN-201 Golden Clear.
  8. When the shine is off the glaze, begin prepping the Silkscreen Medium. Thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium and mix together using a palette knife. Work the glaze into the consistency of peanut butter. With the bird screen shiny side down, rub the mix over the screen, remove, wash gently.
  9. Thin SC-80 Basketball slightly to brush to the breast, thinner near the wing, SC-14 Java Bean to the branch. Use CB-106 #6 Script Liner and CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner.
  10. Fire to cone 05/06.
