  3. Using a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace the design of the snowman onto the center of the plate and the holly pattern evenly spaced on the edge of the plate leaving a larger space at the bottom.
  4. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 2 Coats of SG-302 Snowfall to the face and the shoulders of the snowman leaving a space for the eyes and nose. Allow to dry between Coats.
