Instructions

  1. Wipe ware with damp sponge to remove any bisque dust. Let dry.
  2. Using a pencil, lightly sketch large sunflowers randomly all over the inside of bowl. Refer to photo.
  3. Cut a small piece of clay carbon paper and place on flower center or where desired on one of the flowers, then place bumblebee pattern on top of clay carbon paper and trace over design with pen to transfer design onto bowl. Repeat twice more in desired locations on flowers.
  4. Using the No. 6 Fan Glaze, apply three flowing coats of Green Apple to the backside of bowl, letting color dry thoroughly between coats.

  6. Pour a puddle of Sunflower Yellow on a piece of foil and slightly thin with water to a creamy consistency. Using the No. 6 Round, apply the Sunflower Yellow to each of the petals of the flowers with long, flowing strokes and with some petals overlapping others. Let dry and apply a second coat over each petal.
  7. Pour a puddle of Chutney Spice onto foil and slightly thin with water. Dip the No. 6 Round in water, tap out excess on a paper towel and side load bristles in Chutney Spice. Add a stroke between the petals along the edges to create shading and depth.
  8. Fill in flower centers with Chutney Spice, using brush bristles to stipple color in to create texture. Let dry and repeat with a second coat.
