Instructions:

1.Lightly wipe ware with a damp sponge to remove any bisque dust.

2.Use a pencil to lightly sketch placement of square abstract flowers.

3.Thoroughly shake each of the French Dimensions™ colors to mix.

4.Squeeze an amount of each of the colors except for the Black Licorice on a piece of foil. Using the Palette Knife and working with one color at a time, pick up an amount of color and spread onto squares, alternating the color for each square as desired. Let dry.

5.Shake the Black Licorice color down to the tip of bottle and apply a loose square outline around each color block. Add a long stem extending from the flower to the base of pitcher, allowing the lines to have some wiggle in them. Add large teardrop shaped strokes randomly around the outer edge of each color block as shown. Let all colors dry thoroughly.

6.Using the Fan Glaze brush, carefully apply two flowing coats of Pure Brilliance® Clear Glaze to the entire piece.

7.Stilt and fire to witness cone 06.
