  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-033 Mediterranean Teal into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water).  It should be the consistency of a coffee cream.  Pour this into the vase and roll around to completely coat the interior of the vase.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep the vase inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail to the pages of the book. Allow to dry. Apply a wash of thinned SC-41 Brown Cow to the page area.
  4. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-77 Lime Light to the book cover. While the last coat of SC-77 Lime Light is still wet, blend SC-10 Teal Next Time on the outer edge of the cover and the spine. Allow to dry.
  5. with a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace on the patterns.
  6. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, load the brush with SC-36 Irish Luck ant side load with SC-29 Blue Grass. Stroke in the branches of the tree.
  7. Using a CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 3 coats of SC-24 Dandelion to the star.
  8. Using SG-401 Black Designer Liner, apply to the lettering with the metal tip on the bottle.
  9. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply some thin wispy lines to the tree braches with tined SG-401 Black Designer Liner.
