  • Time: 1½ hours


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using a CB-602 #2 Soft Fan, apply 2 coats of FN-011 Light Blue to the top of the tray
  3. With the same brush apply 3 coats of SC-20 Cashew Later, SC-26 Green Thumb, SC-27 Sour Apple, SC-73 Candy Apple Red, and SC-74-Hot Tamale in the egg divots. It depends on how many elf faces you want as to how many SC-20 Cashew Later ones you will have; the others were applied randomly to the leftover divots.
  4. Once those are dry you may draw the faces. You can either freehand and make your own or use the template that is provided with AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper
  5. Using a combination of CB-106 #6 Script Liner, CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, and CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner paint the faces with at least 2 coats of the detail colors.
  6. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1-2 coats of SP-245 Speckled Blue Heaven depending on how many speckles you would like. It is done after the designs and not as a base coat because the speckles will come through any glaze that is painted on top of it.
  7. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-006 Blue to the back of the tray. Allow to dry.
  8. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
