  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. On a 6" tile, using a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, trace the bird pattern.
  3. Using scissors, cut out the flower shapes from the pattern. Arrange on the tile and trace.
  4. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush the flower shapes with thinned colors using SC-97 Cant-elope, SC-96 Aqu-ward, SC-2 Melon Choly, and SC-12 Moody Blue for centers.
  5. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush the bird with thinned SC-97 Cant-elope leaving the breast area and around the eye unpainted. Deepen the color under the wing with another brush stroke of Cant-elope.
  6. Using CB-106 #6 Script Liner, brush the wing and branch with a brush stroke of SC-83 Tip Taupe.
  7. Using CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner, outline the bird and branch with SC-15 Tuxedo.
  8. On a palette, with a palette knife, thicken SC-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter.
  9. Using various flowers from DSS-0112 Flowers, align the flowers (shiny side of screen down) over the glazed areas. Using your finger, rub the thickened SC-15 Tuxedo over the screen. Repeat for additional flowers. Gently wash the screen in water, laying flat to dry.
