  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some FN-019 Dark Blue 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 book vase and roll around to completely coat the interior of the book vase.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep book vase inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.

  4. Position the cut out rabbit on the book roughly trace around the shape.
  5. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of CG-975 Sky Diamonds on the area.
  6. When dry, brush with water and place on the paper cut out.  Press down using a paper towel to make sure to eliminate any gaps in the paper around the edges.
