1.Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 Bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Slightly thin FN-43 Bright Jade, pour to the inside and turn to coat. Pour out the excess glaze and drain the piece.

3. Use the Soft Fan to apply three coats of SC-50 Orange Ya Happy to the shell.

4. Use the Soft Fan to apply one coat of thinned SC-7 Leapin' Lizard to the turtle's body leaving the breast unpainted. Applyone thinned coat of SC-77 Glo Worm on the highlights of the body. Thin color even more then apply to the highlights of the chest.

5. Use the Soft Fan to widely float SC-26 Green Thumb around the body. Use the Script Liner to create a narrow float of SC-8 Just Froggy.

6. Using a palette knife, thicken S-15 Tuxedo with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium to the consistency of peanut butter. Use the large pineapple screen from DSS-0147 Island. Use sections of the screen on the shell of the turtle, with the shiny side down, rub the thickened Tuxedo over the screen, gently wash then re-use to go around the shell.

7. Use the Liner to apply SC-27 Sour Apple to the eyes and SC-15 Tuxedo to the pupils. Outline the eyes and mouth with SC-15 Tuxedo.

8. Dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze or use the Soft Fan to apply one coat of S-2101 Clear to the outside of the turtle.

9. Fire to cone 05/06.
