  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove dust.
  2. Trace the pattern onto the bisque.
  3. Outline heavily with SG-401 Designer Liner Black, outline about three petals, then spray water with the spray bottle over the wet Designer Liner Black, this will soften the black and run the color. Outline all the petals and leaves.

  5. Dot around the centers with SG-401 Designer Liner Black, add a few dots inside of the centers, spray with water. From a palette, pat SG-405 Designer Liner Green with the tip of CB-106 #6 Script Liner, to the centers, pat SG-408 Designer Liner Orange only less than the Green to the centers.

Apply SG-407 Designer Liner Yellow to the petals with the tip, in a scribble fashion, before it dries, use CB-106 #6 Script Liner to flatten and spread the color, outline inside of the black line with SG-408 Designer Liner Orange, spray after a few petals with water. Highlight some of the petals with a brush stroke of SG-402 Designer Liner White for a highlight.
  7. From a palette, brush on both SG-405 Designer Liner Green and SG-409 Designer Liner Bright Green to the leaves, use the dark and bright green to shade the leaves, 1-2 coats.
