Toilet Paper Roll Hedgehog

Designer: Marcia Roullard



1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. For the body of the hedgehog, brush two blended coats of SC-86 Old Lace with SC-83 Tip Taupe, brush mostly with the Old Lace, brushing in Tip Taupe for more interest.

3. Cut a toilet paper roll in half lengthwise then make cuts in the short side to look like fringe about two inches long, cut widths vary between 3/8 and 1/2 inch. Trim the widths so that there is a small space between them when they lay flat.

4. Start stamping at the back, sponge the toilet paper roll with SC-34 Down To Earth, tip the fringe with SC-15 Tuxedo, press to the back, you will need to repeat the stamp till the glaze builds on the cardboard roll, overlap the stamping, add in SC-14 Java bean to some of the stamps for more interest.

5.  Brush the head with two coats fo SC-86 Old Lace blending with SC-60 Silver Lining, use the fan brush. Stamp with SC-35 Gray Hare.

6. Paint the nose with SC-15 Tuxedo, eyes are first glazed with SC-16 Cotton Tail, SC-14 Java Bean for the eye, SC-15 Tuxedo outline, eyelashes, and pupil, use RB-110 Liner.  Stoke in a line for the mouth and dots for freckles use Tuxedo. Shade with SC-15 Tuxedo around the nose, under the eye and around the head, use SC-15 Tuxedo with RB-106 Script Liner.

7.  Dip into  NT-CLR Clear Dipping or use the Soft Fan to apply one coat of or NT-BR Clear Brushing Glaze.

8.  Fire to cone 05/06.
