Faceted Star with Star Dust

Instructions

3. Using MC-001 6mm Low Track Masking Tape, tape off the inner star. Use an X-ACTO knife to trim off any excess. You don't want any tape on the inner star.

5. Leave the adjacent star facet as bisque. 

6. Using MC-001 6mm Low Track Masking Tape, tape off the next star facet. Use an X-ACTO knife to trim off any excess tape. 

7. Using the Soft Fan and SC-87 Ruby Slippers, apply three coats to the star. Allow glaze to dry between coats. Before the last coat of glaze is completely dry, carefully remove the tape.
