  4. On flower vase, squeeze out one flower at a time, adding petals with a “U” shape. Add large center dot in each flower. Repeat to complete all flowers. Repeat pattern on back of vase. Let dry thoroughly.
  5. Place an amount of Sienna Suede in a cup and add enough water to thin to a rolling consistency or like light cream. Pour thinned glaze in vase, carefully rolling glaze to coat entire inside of vase. Pour out excess.
  6. Repeat thinned glaze with Forest Flannel on other side vase.
  7. Use 1” Glaze Brush to apply three coats of Crimson Chenille to remaining vase. Let dry after each coat.
  8. Using 1” Glaze Brush, apply three coats of unthinned glaze on outside of each vase with appropriate color, being careful to not flatten French Dimension details. Let dry after each coat.
  9. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06.
