crackle vintage snowman




1. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Apply three coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the jacket. Use the same brush to apply one coat of SC-81 Cinnamon Stix to the jacket and allow the colour to fade into Candy Apple Red.  

3. Apply three coats of SC-45 My Blue Heaven to the scarf. Use the same brush to add shading on the edges with SC-29 Blue Grass.

4. Apply the following: two coats of SC-45 My Blue Heaven to the buttons; three coats of SC-29 Blue Grass to the mittens; two coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the hat band; two coats of SC-15 Tuxedo to the hat and two coats of SC-22 Carrot Top to the nose.

5. Use the sponge to lightly apply one coat of SC-2 Melon-Choly to the cheeks.

6. With SC-16 Cotton Tail highlight the hat. Apply two thinned coats of SC-76 Cara-Bein to the eyes; apply one coat of SC-15 Tuxedo to the pupils and to outline the eyes and mouth and fill in the eyebrows.

7. Use the star paper punch to punch out shapes. You will be using the negative part of the punch. Wet each piece of paper and gently press onto the scarf and jacket. Gently press the shapes down with a paper towel to remove excess water and ensure the edges are sealed.  Apply two coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail over the star shapes. Remove the paper.

8. Use a brush or cotton swab with water to remove any colour that may have got on the body of the snowman.

9. Apply two or three coats of CC-101 Transparent Crackle over the head and body of the snowman. Heavier application gives larger cracks; thinner application gives smaller cracks.

10. Fire to cone 06.

11. Thin a dark acrylic paint and use a Soft Fan to brush over the head and body of the snowman (antiquing). Use a soft cloth or towel to wipe colour off of the piece. Colour will remain in the cracks. Note: Do not antique the snowman right after firing or wait a day to allow more cracks to appear.
