("Hello everyone!") *
As I promised earlier I'm posting some photos of things I made yesterday. I'm sorry that I'm doing it now but Blogger had some problems with websites before -___-''
Like I said yesterday, I decided to make big batches of individual components first and then just play making proper items. So yesterday I started making different types of flowers for cupcakes. For some of them I used little icing cutters and the little roses are made by hand.
I don't really know how to name these more complicated flowers, but making them took me a lot of time :( The cutters are quite small and clay was just sticking to it all the time! But I think it was worth is because they just look gorgeous on cupcakes! :P
I also made some big and smaller cookies and they just killed me at the end of the day! I seriously couldn't see straight when i finished painting them! :D
I tried to paint them with crushed pastels but it just looked horrible. The triangle is painted with pastels, the middle one is mixed (acrylic paint and pastels), and the heart is painted with acrylic and "burned" on the top with pastel powder :) Yes, you can burned clay biscuits! :D Maybe just polymer clay doesn't really like powdered pastels or maybe I have crap brushes. For me at the moment acrylics are better because I can easily control the amount i put on clay. I can even wash most of it off with water if I will make mistake. With pastels is different, if I put them onto clay, they stay there for good.
I will post some cupcakes pictures tomorrow because now they are drying.
And I'm going to have some rest and go to play Final Fantasy XIII now ^_^'
Mata ashita! (^_^)'

I hope that it is correct! If anyone from Japan is reading this, please please kindly correct me if I'm wrong :D )
