General information about the paper technique: The paper has to be applied with a glaze under it as in this technique. It cannot stick directly to bisque because when the bisque dries it will fall off. Also the paper must be wet in order for it to stick to the glaze. When using smaller paper pieces you can dip right into the water, apply, and use a sponge to dab off the excess. If the paper stencil is large you won’t be able to dip it into the water because it will be to flimsy. Instead, you will need to use a soft fan brush and wet the brush and apply it to the area that you’ll be putting the pattern on. Do this lightly so you don’t mess the design, then dab it with the sponge to remove excess water. This technique doesn’t work well if the paper is applied to wet glaze from recent application. Glaze must be dry to the touch. (If you want to do this technique right onto the bisque without any color you would need to use contact paper instead of regular copy paper.)
