With a damp sponge wipe the surface down making sure all dust and debris from surface and cracks is removed. Let dry

With a soft bristle brush, apply two coats of chosen foundations to entire surface except stem. Dry thoroughly between coats.

Pour each SC color in a separate small container/cup or squeeze bottle. Thin the SC with small amount of water until it will move freely.



Drizzle the chosen Stroke and Coats – one at a time, over the base-coated surface, creating a marbled look. You do not need to let dry between colors. Dry thoroughly when all colors are applied.

Apply three coats of Teal to the stem of the Green pumpkin or three coats of Blueberry to the Purple pumpkin. Dry thoroughly between coats.

Fire stilted to cone 06
