Instructions (Read all instructions before you begin)
Step 1- Apply 3 coats of Polar Bear to entire bowl and let dry.
Step 2- Cut several snowman shapes (see pattern below) out of paper and adhere randomly to inside of bowl using the paper technique.
Step 3- Squeeze out some Butterscotch onto a paper plate and add water to slightly thin down the color. Using a soft fan brush, apply one good coat of Butterscotch. While the glaze is still wet, lay a paper towel over the paint and lightly press down, then peel paper towel away revealing a textured pattern.
Step 4- Using a damp sponge, very lightly wipe around the edge of the bowl to remove any stray Butterscotch paint, creating a smooth white border.
Step 5- Remove paper snowmen, then trace detail patterns below onto snowmen, or follow remaining instructions to apply details freehand.
Step 6- Use a Fun Writer filled with Butterscotch to freehand draw carrot shaped noses on each snowman.
Step 7- Use a Fun Writer filled with Rockin’ Red to freehand draw and fill in scarves around the necks of each snowman.
Step 8- Use a Fun Writer filled with Black Lab to loosely scribble around the outline of each snowman, their nose and scarf, and add facial details and arms.
Step 9- Allow the bowl to dry, then dip into clear glaze and fire to cone 06.
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.)
