I made this as a gift for Liam's teacher :) I experimented a bit and made my own mold for the flowers. I followed Donna Kato's tutorial found in her book Creative Surface Techniques. The look that I wanted to achieve was "Bas Relief" but obviously I didn't achieve it!! hahaha I think i made the flowers too thick! :) I enjoyed making the mold though. I plan to make more molds soon!
Here are pics of the project..
I made a clay flower first and after baking I pressed scrap clay (that I passed through the pasta machine using the thickest setting and then folded it into two) onto the flower to make this..
:) It's a very nice technique! Now I can use this mold over and over again. So many designs that I have in mind..hopefully I can make some more soon..
Here's the mirror..where I used the flower mold..
I think I should have used my matte varnish instead of the glossy one.:(
Last Saturday, I got these!!! (thanks so so so much to hubby for going with me!)
Steampunk push molds! so cool! I saw these at Lisa Pavelka's blog! I wished and hoped that some online shop will purchase them..and I'm really so happy that Beadlady Craft Cafe are selling it! I can't wait to try them. I love the details on each mold!
Silicon for making detailed push molds. I have to use this soon before the expiry date:) I'm just choosing what charms and cameos to use. I'm also hoping that I'll get the mixing right!
Saturday also was a picnic day for us. Liam was the one who asked us to have the instant picnic! He enjoyed it a lot and didn't want it to end! I think we're going to have more picnics this summer vacation! I love this pic! Next time Daddy should be infront of the camera and not behind it. hahaha:)
It's going to be a very busy week..Liam's "Moving Up" program this saturday! I can't wait to see him in his pig costume! haha:)
Have a great week everyone!
