- Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
- Place some SC-75 Orange A Peel, SC-74 Hot Tamale, SC-29 Blue Grass SC-97 Cant-elope, and SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile and sprinkle some AC-310 Silkscreen Medium on top. Use a palette knife to mix the colour and medium to the consistency of peanut butter. If the mix is too thin add more AC-310 Silkscreen Medium and if the mixture is too thick add more colour. Too thin of a mixture will bleed under the screen and give you a blurred image. Too thick a mixture will make it hard for the product to penetrate through the holes in the screen and give you blank areas in your screen. Position the screen on the piece and hold in place, starting in the center of the screen, rub the mixture onto the screen with your finger. Lift a corner up to check if you are applying enough colour. Remove the screen and wash with water.
- Screen with the shiny side up using various flowers from the silkscreen DSS-112 Flowers, on the face of the door knob box with the thickened colours, omitting SC-15 Tuxedo. Screen to fill in the space with your finger.
- Use CB-110 Liner to make small dots on the empty spaces.
- Screen the stripe with the shiny side up on the side of the box with the thickened SC-12 Tuxedo, use a rubber squeegee.
- Brush two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo on the edge trim with CB-106 Script Liner.
- When dry, brush with three coats of CC-101 Transparent Crackle use a Soft Fan brush.
- Fire to a witness cone 06.
- Let the cracks develop over a couple of days when taken out of the kiln. Thin SS-138 Flat Black and water with a 50/50 mixture and brush over the crackle. Let the colour seep in the cracks. Wipe off excess using a paper towel or old t-shirt
