Project Info


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2-3 coats of FN-001 White on the butterfly.
  3. Create and cut out a paper pattern of the white detail that is on the wings.
  4. Working with one wing at a time, brush wing with water. Place the paper cut-out in position, then finger press. Place a paper towel over the wing then press to remove excess water.
  5. Repeat for the other wing.
  6. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of SC-42 Butter Me Up on the entire butterfly.
  7. Remove the paper after the last coat of SC-42 Butter Me Up has lost its shine.
  8. Cut a small piece of cheesecloth to fit about an inch larger than the body of the butterfly.
  9. Wet the cheesecloth and squeeze out any excess water.
  10. Lay the cheesecloth over the body then brush some thinned SC-42 Butter Me Up over the cheesecloth. This coat will prevent the cheesecloth from moving. Allow to dry to the damp stage.
  11. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of SC-14 Java Bean to the body. Pull off the cheesecloth as the SC-14 Java Bean loses its shine. Allow to dry
  12. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
