wp064 Ladybug Gathering
Designer: Marcia Roullard


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SC-74 Hot Tamale to the top of the tile. Allow to dry. 
  3. Cut out the ladybugs from the pattern. With a pencil, outline the ladybugs on the tile. Set cut outs aside for later use.
  4. Using CB-110 #10/0, outline the ladybugs with 2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo. Also draw in the antennas.
  5. Using CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, paint in with 2 coats of SC-15 Tuxedo, the heads, spots and lower portion of the ladybugs. Allow to dry.
  6. Wet the cut out patterns and place on top of the painted ladybugs. This will act as a mask. Smooth out the paper using a BT-910 Synthetic Sponge.
  7. Using CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of CG-2714 Herb Garden on the tile, overtop the paper pattern masks. 
  8. Remove the paper pattern masks. 
  9. If desired, using CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of Sc-15 Tuxedo to the sides of the tile.
  10. Fire to witness cone 06.
