The popup window can be closed after each detail is painted as each section has a link to the picture required for the area being discussed.  However, if you do not close the individual windows, you can return to them by clicking on the buttons on your task bar to bring each window to the front of your screen as you need it.  Each time you click on a button, a new window will open; so if you already have the feature open, use the task bar button rather than the popup window button.  This will avoid reopening the same window several times.  After a few times of using the technique sheets, you will find which method is more suitable to your needs and your computer.  You may want to leave the full face picture open and minimized as it takes slightly longer to reload than the other pictures.  All of the windows can be resized to suit the size of your workspace on your computer.

1st FIRING:  CONE 017

OVERALL WASH:          Bisq Tone 1000      Mix with Area Medium.    Make your sponge into a pad by pinching it between your thumb and index finger and pounce it into a small puddle of area medium.  Pounce several times onto your tile AWAY from the medium again in order to load the medium fully into the sponge.   You do not want to leave pools of medium on the head.  The goal is to apply a thin coat of medium over the entire Bisq area in order to allow your paint to spread easily.   To load your sponge with paint, pinch the sponge between your thumb and your index finger and pounce several times into your paint mixture to "load" the sponge.  Apply paint to head with sponge.   Make sure that paint is applied smoothly with no puddling in the creases.  This is not a difficult procedure, and is most successful if you apply the paint to the facial features in a "cross" effect.  Start sponging the paint on the forehead, work downwards over the lip and chin area.  Using the same sponge, apply paint around the eye area and continue back to include the ears.  Take a dry, clean shader and pull the paint into the nostrils, lower areas of the ear, the mouth, etc.  Using the same sponge, but without loading any more paint on it, smooth the paint applied to the front of the face around to the back of the head, adding more paint only if required.  Smooth with a clean sponge using a circular motion.  Do not try to remove all the paint, just smooth it out.  Then polish with the large China Mop.  The Bisq Tone Paints are very forgiving if you don't overwork them.    Your color should be a smooth and beautiful rose color not too pale.  Bru's were not done with a shiny finish, but had a smooth matte look to them.
