Make sure bisque item is clean and dust free. Wipe down with a damp sponge. Let dry.

Cut lace to a size with about 1inch spare all around the item.

With a soft glaze brush, apply one coat of medium blue glaze to the entire surface of the bisque. Let dry.

When dry, apply a second coat. While still wet, lay the lace over the surface and press lightly to imbed it into the glaze.

Let glaze dry thoroughly before going to the next step

Using the soft glaze brush, apply one coat of big Skye Blue over the entire piece. Let dry.

When dry, apply a second coat of Big Skye Blue over the entire item. Do NOT let it dry. When it loses its shine, but still wet and tacky, take a cleaning knife or other sharp object and carefully lift a corner of the lace, then peel it away from the piece.

Let the item dry completely.

With the glaze brush, apply one coat of clear glaze. Apply enough to ensure the crevices of the removed lace are filled.
