  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. On the DSS-0156 Llama Drama screen, locate the llama. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with excess screen around the edges.
  3. Squeeze about two tablespoons of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the plate. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more Silkscreen Medium or glaze.
  4. Place the llama’s head in the bottom, center of the ornament. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed Silkscreen Medium, and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward. Slowly pull up the screen to avoid smearing.
  5. Using the pencil, draw a candy cane in the Llama’s mouth.
  6. Using the Detail Liner, Script Liner and Fan Brush with SC-8 Just Froggy, apply two coats to the background, sides and back of the ornament. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Detail Liner with SC-73 Candy Apple Red, apply two coats to every other stripe in the candy cane. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Using the Detail Liner with SG-302 Snowfall, make a layer of snow falling off of the top of the ornament. Refer to image. Apply one coat to the fur of the llama. Avoid the screened lines.
  9. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, outline the candy cane.
  10. Using the Soft Fan, apply one coat of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze or dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze.
  11. Fire to cone 06.
