  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With ½” Masking Tape, tape the top area on the flower pot where the ribbing stops on the pot.
  3. Using the AC-213 Sponge on a Stick, pounce on 2 solid coats of SG-302 Snowfall to the area below the tape, excluding the bottom.
  4. Cut out the flower and leaf shapes, and attach to the pot with water, pressing down with a paper towel to make sure no color goes beneath the patterns.
  5. Using aCB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply a thinned to a wash coat of SC-94 Curry Around to the top half of the pot, then a thinned coat of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral to the lower half, allowing the colors to blend in the middle where they meet.
  6. Remove the paper and masking tape.
  7. For 2 of the cup shaped flowers, leave unpainted. For the other 2 flowers, load a CB-106 #6 Script Liner with SC-94 Curry Around and apply to the cupped area.
  8. Using a pencil, lightly sketch in the oval shaped flowers.
  9. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply to the upper half 2 coats of SC-94 Curry Around, and 2 coats of SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral to the lower half.
