Woodsy Owl

Designer: Marcia Roullard



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

2. Wet a blue shop towel, squeeze out the excess water and lay flat on a surface. Squeeze loops of SC-16 Cotton Tail onto the paper towel. Fill in with SC-25 Crackerjack Brown using 1/4 as much as the Cotton Tail.

3. Fold the towel in half press together, then open, if some of the surface has missing color, fill in with more SC-16 Cotton Tail. Press the paper towel to the owl. Roll over with a foam roller to transfer the color to the bisque.

4. Remove the paper towel, roll over the color with a clean, dry foam roller to reveal the color beneath the top layer.

5. Repeat to finish the owl.

6. For the log base, add more of the SC-25 Crackerjack Brown to the paper towel to darken the area. Let dry.

7. Use the Detail Brush to outline the facets with SG-408 Brown.

8. Use the Liner to paint the eyes with SC-15 Tuxedo. Lighten the Tuxedo with water to create gray for the iris.

9. Dip into NT-CLR or use the Soft Fan to apply two coats of S-2101 Clear.

10. Fire to cone 05/06.
