Designer: Josh Clark



  1. Fire bisque to shelf cone 04, and wipe bisque with a damp sponge before starting to paint.
  2. Start by using SG-401 Black Designer Liner to draw in the details of the eyes, nostrils, mouth, and fingernails.
  3. Using SW- 253 Green Opal paint two coats over the eyeballs. Next Using SC-16 Cotton Tail paint 2 coats over the teeth. Next to mask off those areas carefully paint AC-302 Wax Resist over the eyeballs and teeth.

  5. Once the SW-120 Northern Woods is completely dry, paint two coats of SW-155 Winter Wood over the entire piece.
