Instructions:
  1. Wipe ware with damp sponge to remove bisque dust.
  2. Using a pencil, lightly sketch paisley shapes and hearts on box lid. Also sketch irises and pupils in eyes.
  3. Dip the No. 6 Round in the water and side load Black to float shaded Black around the outside edges of the eye recesses.
  4. Side load the No. 6 Round in Neon Red and add a shaded stroke around the outside of each eye. Repeat until the color is dark enough.
  5. Side load the No. 6 Round with Light Sapphire and add a shaded stroke on the top and bottom edges of teeth. Repeat with a very diluted, pale Neon Red around the outside of the mouth.
  6. Use thinned Light Kiwi to create green stripes above eyes and under the cheekbones.
  7. Using the No. 1 Liner or the No. 4 Round, add desired colors to the paisley and heart shapes on the lid, creating solid color or shaded strokes. Add Black to the nose cavity and pupils.
  8. Thoroughly shake and mix the French Dimensions Black Licorice and Light Pink and apply to the paisley and heart shapes. Continuing with the Black Licorice, add details such as line swirls around the top of the head and lower portion of the mouth and jaw. Create a scalloped design around the eyes and the drop strokes on the irises.
  9. Add Light Pink comma strokes around the top of the skull and chin, and tulip shapes to the cheekbones. Add drop strokes to the scallops around the eyes.
  10. After all color has dried thoroughly, carefully apply two smooth, flowing coats of Pure Brilliance to the entire piece inside and out, being very careful not to smear the color. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
