Instructions

  1. Begin with a mb0867 bauble. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove dirt.
  2. On the DSS-0157 Under the Sea screen, locate the crab. Draw an outline around it in permanent marker. Cut it out with the excess screen around the edges.
  3. Squeeze about two tablespoons of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the plate. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more Silkscreen Medium or glaze.
  4. Place the crab in the bottom, center of the ornament. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed Silkscreen Medium, and gently rub in circles starting in the center and working outward. Slowly pull up the screen to avoid smearing.
  5. Using the pencil, draw two presents resting on top of the crab's claws. Refer to image.
  6. Using the Detail Liner with SC-73 Candy Apple Red, apply two coats to the crab. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  7. Using the Detail Liner with SC-8 Just Froggy, apply two coats to the bottom present. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  8. Using the Detail Liner with SC-78 Lime Light, apply two coats to the top present. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  9. Using the Script Liner and Detail Liner with SC-45 My Blue Heaven, apply two coats to the background of the ornament. Allow glaze to dry between coats.
  10. Using the Scrip Liner and Fan Brush with SC-74 Hot Tamale, apply two coats to the sides and back of the ornament.
  11. Use SG-403 to make a bow on the presents.
  12. Using the Detail Liner with SC-15 Tuxedo, outline the presents and bow.
  13. Using the Script Liner with SG-401 Star Dust, apply one coat to the crab.
  14. Using the Soft Fan, apply one coat of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze or dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze.
