Cookies and jellies
I'm back again! :D Just for a little bit to show you some quick photos.
I finished work a bit earlier the other day and I decided to play with resin :) I've always wanted to make little jellies and these little babies are my first ones that came out pretty well. I used normal silicone ice/jelly mould and glass paint. The mould itself is not smooth so my jellies look a bit frosted. I got the parcel from Japan today with different smooth jelly moulds so my next jellies will be shiny :)
I don't know what I'll make from them, maybe fridge magnets...
The next thing I've been working on were cookies and biscuits. I need a lot of them so I've made different types, here you can see only one and some wafers for ice creams. I've used makeup sponge to "bake" them and I must say that I don't know how I could live without it before! It's so easy to shade things with it and it creates totally different look than brushing with pastel powder. If anyone's reading this is just starting to make deco sweets, makeup sponge is a must! Believe me, it will make your life much easier :) .
Some of you know that I've tried to make whip cream from fimo air dry clay before, but I failed. Well I tried again :) I added less water and I made "swirl" cookies :) I don't know their real name so I call them swirl cookies :D
I also made these twisted... things. And off course I used now my favourite sponge. So easy! :)
I still have much more things to make and recently I get lost what I need more or not. I think I might have wrong way of creating things. It's like with my clothes shopping: I buy things I like without thinking and then I'm stucked with items that don't match each other. So now I'm worried that I will be left with deco that won't look good together :( I need to revise what I need and stop reading blogs for some time, not to get distracted. I just see things and I want to make them, forgetting about all the other sweets I was planning to make before. Total mess! But I am messy and chaotic :D Well, at least my room is after my crating.... ^_^'
Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for looking!
