HOW TO MUG – PART 2

Tutorials

Hello lovely People of the internet!

I have been away for quite some time, and in the last blog post I promised you a follow up tutorial to show you how to use the mold we made in that tutorial.

So here we go:

You will need:

  • clay
  • a ball-tool
  • some tiny knives

MUG-1

First you have to fill up the mold with your clay.

Then remove the clay you don’t need with a knife.

MUG-3

I even removed a bit from the center, so it will easier to form it in the next step.

For the next step you’re going to take your ball-tool, and push the clay into so mold to hollow it out.

When you do this, clay will push up, which you have to remove again.

MUG-4

Use the knife to remove the excess .

MUG-5

Hollow it out even more, until you’re happy with the shape.

MUG-6

MUG-7

Now it is time to put in in the oven for around 10 to 15 min. You want to bake it a shorter amount of time, since you will have to bake it again later on!

MUG-8

When it is ready, let it cool off, and then pop your shape out.

MUG-9

Usually the edges will be uneven, so I take my knife again, to carefully remove more excess and make it smooth.

MUG-10

MUG-11

MUG-12

MUG-13

When your cup is ready we can move onto making the handle for the mug.

Roll out some clay in a thin shape.

MUG-14

Cut it even thinner.

MUG-15

Cut it to the length you will need.

MUG-16

Since our cup is already baked, it is pretty easy to attach it to the inside of the cup.

MUG-17

MUG-18

MUG-19

If it is well attached, move it around, and attach the other side to the outside of the cup.

Don’t press to hard! We want the outside to look fine, and not like the inside.

MUG-20

MUG-21

When you’re ready, you can start adding the tea or coffee or any other drink you want to fill your cup with.

I started by filling the cup with Liquid Clay.

Then I used pastels and a knife to sprinkle some fine powder over the top.

MUG-22

MUG-23

Mix it in using a toothpick!

MUG-24

Well…and then you’re ready!

MUG-25

Now all you have to do is bake it again in the oven for another 20 min. and tadaaaaaa, you’re done! Yeah!

P.S.: I am planning on blogging more often again!

Wish me luck!

Jammin’ around – A tutorial

Tutorials

I AM ALIVE!

So sorry for being gone for so long. I was just missing motivation. It’s still not fully back, but I guess I can’t sit around and wait for it to finally come back. Let’s keep busy!

This mini tutorial is from last month when I made the tiny food trays.

Unfortunately it’s not completed so you have to imagine how it good be finished.

Also, not sponsored by nivea ^^, just didn’t notice it was in frame, and now I am honestly to lazy to cut it out of the picture.

So letssssss staaaaaaart:

You will need:

  • clay in a jam colour
  • translucent clay
  • TLS
  • a ball tool

First mix your jam color with some translucent clay but not to much. This way your glas will look kinda realistic.

I am using translucent red clay, so if you’ve got that use it.

Then proceed to make little balls, flatten them, so you’ll have tiny cylinder shapes.

You can also roll the clay into snakes to what ever wideness (?) you prefer.

(can be easier! my clay was to old and broke trying this)

thumb_IMG_8779_1024

Then roll translucent clay into a snake of the same width, and attach it to the other color after you have made clean cuts on both sides!

thumb_IMG_8780_1024

thumb_IMG_8781_1024

To “fuse” both colors together roll the clay in your hand, don’t worry if it gets wider and or thinner, you can always push it back into its shape.

thumb_IMG_8782_1024

thumb_IMG_8783_1024

thumb_IMG_8784_1024

thumb_IMG_8785_1024

After you have decided on a width and height you can begin to make a dent. Using ball-tools will make this ridiculously easy. If you don’t have one you can use the end of a pen or something. Just make sure its plastic, or you might risk taking paint off of that pen.

thumb_IMG_8786_1024

thumb_IMG_8787_1024

Now it’s time to make the “jam”.

I mixed translucent red and TLS together.

Then put it inside.(twss)
thumb_IMG_8788_1024

thumb_IMG_8789_1024

thumb_IMG_8790_1024

I also wanted to make tiny spoons. I made those by simply rolling out silver clay, cutting it in small strikes and then using a ball tool to make a spoon like end. I then added more “jam” to them.

thumb_IMG_8793_1024

Now.. this is where my pictures end, but here are some pictures to show you where you could use those tiny jam jars.

You can also add tiny labels!

thumb_IMG_8837_1024

I hope this was in anyway helpful to you!

Tiny Cookie Tray Tutorial

Tutorials

Hello Lovelys!

Today I am going to show you how to create a quite simple miniature food tray, which you could either use in a dollhouse or as a fridge magnet.

You will need:

  • Clay in ‘tan’, ‘white’, ‘silver’ (optional), ‘pink’ and ‘chocolate’
  • Fimo Liquid or TLS
  • Some tools

Let’s begin!

thumb_IMG_8713_1024

First you need to warm up and then roll out the silver clay!

This will be our baking tray!

thumb_IMG_8714_1024

thumb_IMG_8715_1024

thumb_IMG_8716_1024

Yes I am using a water bottle to roll the clay out.

thumb_IMG_8717_1024

Now cut out a rectangle.

Then use the left over clay to cut out thin stripes. Those will be our tray border.

thumb_IMG_8718_1024

thumb_IMG_8719_1024

thumb_IMG_8721_1024

thumb_IMG_8722_1024

Use another stripe and a ball tool to make a spoon!

thumb_IMG_8723_1024

thumb_IMG_8725_1024

Put everything aside and begin to mix a tan and brown color to get a woodlike appearance.

thumb_IMG_8726_1024

thumb_IMG_8727_1024

thumb_IMG_8728_1024

Roll it out and cut another rectangle. You can make it bigger than the other one if you want to.

thumb_IMG_8730_1024

thumb_IMG_8731_1024

When you’re ready put it aside. Now we can start to make the bowl.

I have made myself a bowl mold. If you don’t know how to make a bowl here’s a Bowl Tutorial that I find helpful. If you wan’t to know how I made the mold, let me know in the comments.

thumb_IMG_8732_1024

Basically, what I do here is: I fill the mold with clay, cut off the excess and then use a ball tool to make a dent. Then I cut off excess clay again.

thumb_IMG_8733_1024

thumb_IMG_8735_1024

Put it to the side!

Now we have to make the cookies!

Take your tan colored clay and roll it out!

thumb_IMG_8736_1024

I use a tiny heart stencil to cut out hearts, but you can also do it free hand.

thumb_IMG_8737_1024

thumb_IMG_8738_1024

After you’ve cut out the hearts, it is time to make the glaze that goes on the cookies!

Mix pink clay (or whatever color you prefer) and Liquid Fimo or TLS!

thumb_IMG_8741_1024

I used a flat tool to mix as I find it a lot easier this way!

thumb_IMG_8743_1024

Now you can start putting the cookies onto the tray!

thumb_IMG_8744_1024

thumb_IMG_8745_1024

thumb_IMG_8746_1024

I don’t think you can see it really well on the pictures, but I put some glaze on each cookie!

thumb_IMG_8748_1024

thumb_IMG_8749_1024

thumb_IMG_8750_1024

As you can see I left 3 cookies outside of which 2 have been glazed and one is still naked.

Pick up the tray and put it onto the other rectangle. Don’t forget to add some TLS as it workes as a glue between the two layers!

thumb_IMG_8751_1024

thumb_IMG_8752_1024

Now it’s time to put the other cookies onto the tray. Use Liquid or TLS again to ‘glue’ it together.

As you can see I also added some glaze/frosting to the bowl and to the spoon.

Leave the bowl in the mold until after baking.

If you didn’t use a mold it is a good idea to glue the bowl onto the clay without frosting and then bake it for a few minutes. Let is cool down and add the frosting. This way you won’t ruin your bowls form. Then bake it for the missing time.

thumb_IMG_8753_1024

After baking you can start to clean it!

thumb_IMG_8796_1024

thumb_IMG_8797_1024

thumb_IMG_8798_1024

Use a small knife to go around the bowls edges if they’re wobbly in any way.

thumb_IMG_8800_1024

Then use super glue to glue it onto the tray!

thumb_IMG_8801_1024

Let it dry! Then turn it around to glue magnets on the back if you want to.

thumb_IMG_8804_1024

And this is the finished product!

Cute!

thumb_IMG_8884_1024

I hope you try out this tutorial or at least found it interesting!

Macaron Friendship Charms – Tutorial

Tutorials

To celebrate today’s International Best Friend Day again, I will show you how to make these super adorable friendship macarons!

thumb_IMG_8756_1024 thumb_IMG_8759_1024 thumb_IMG_8761_1024 thumb_IMG_8758_1024

These are a bit more difficult, than my friendship charm tutorial from Thursday..

Also, I am using a mold I’ve made myself. If you don’t have molds, you can either cut the forms out with cookie cutters or do it by hand. If you’re new to making macarons, here’s a tutorial for mini ones, but it’s basically the same thing.

Other than that, you will need:

  • clay
  • cookie cutters or an exacto knife
  • pins!
  • glaze (optional)

So let’s staaaart :

thumb_IMG_8590_1024

My molds, and the clay ! I am mixing the cream for inside first, and use translucent and pink clay, but you can also just use pink one.

thumb_IMG_8595_1024

Fill the mold with another clay color of your choice.

Because I am using fimo effect, which is ridiculously soft, I let the clay sit in the mold for a bit, before I make the other macaron side.

thumb_IMG_8596_1024

Since I am waiting, I can prepare the other macaron, the round one.

thumb_IMG_8597_1024

thumb_IMG_8598_1024

thumb_IMG_8600_1024

Pop out the clay and put it to the side. Now you can make the other side.

thumb_IMG_8606_1024

I noticed that the edges weren’t defined enough, so I textured it a bit more.

thumb_IMG_8610_1024

Now you can roll out the clay from the start, and then cut a heart out or free hand it.

thumb_IMG_8611_1024

Make sure it fits!

thumb_IMG_8614_1024

I smoothed out the edges to make it rounder and the look creamer.

thumb_IMG_8615_1024

Now cut out a heart in the middle, or again do it by hand !

thumb_IMG_8616_1024

thumb_IMG_8617_1024

thumb_IMG_8618_1024

Put the cream onto the macaron in the mold. This way you won’t squeeze the other macaron side.

thumb_IMG_8620_1024

thumb_IMG_8622_1024

Then put the other heart onto the other macaron side.

If you want you can check carefully if the to sides fit, by putting them together lightly. But this can be tricky.

thumb_IMG_8626_1024

thumb_IMG_8627_1024

I took out the macaron out of the mold.

thumb_IMG_8628_1024

Now repeat the steps for the round macaron!

thumb_IMG_8632_1024

thumb_IMG_8633_1024

thumb_IMG_8634_1024

thumb_IMG_8635_1024

thumb_IMG_8636_1024

thumb_IMG_8638_1024

thumb_IMG_8639_1024

Yay! Done!

thumb_IMG_8641_1024

Now you can put in the pins.

thumb_IMG_8643_1024

thumb_IMG_8646_1024

thumb_IMG_8649_1024

Now lets bake !

After baking, you can remove the dirt and dust. Either use nail polish remover, or scrape the dust away with a knife.

thumb_IMG_8679_1024

thumb_IMG_8682_1024

thumb_IMG_8684_1024

When you are happy with your results you can glaze it !

thumb_IMG_8696_1024

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you had a wonderful Monday!

And maybe you can recreated this tutorial for your best friend!

Merry-ingenious Tutorial

Tutorials

Today I am going to show you how to make perfect little meringues !

I can promise you this will be easier than doing real ones ! 😀 

My mom recently send me some of her homemade ones and daaamn those were peeeeerfect ! 

thumb_IMG_8576_1024

So let’s start !

You will need:

  • white and translucent clay
  • colored clay
  • and/or arcyl colors

If you don’t have translucent clay, thats fine ! I am going to show you different methods, and translucent is not used in one.

thumb__MG_8495_1024

When you’re using trans and white clay mix the two together real good.

thumb__MG_8496_1024

thumb__MG_8499_1024

thumb__MG_8501_1024

Then roll it into a ball ! You can start forming the meringue shape now !

thumb__MG_8502_1024

Start by making one side a bit thinner ! So you will get a cone.

thumb__MG_8503_1024

Then bend the cone slightly while still making the ends thinner.

thumb__MG_8504_1024

thumb__MG_8505_1024

Push down the sides again, if you feel like its to tall. Meringues always look kind of cute and round!

thumb__MG_8506_1024

thumb__MG_8507_1024

This is my finished “cone”, in this method we’re going to color it after baking !

thumb__MG_8508_1024

Method 2 : mix white, trans and colored clay ! And then repeat !

thumb__MG_8515_1024

thumb__MG_8516_1024

thumb__MG_8517_1024

thumb__MG_8518_1024

Tadaaa meringue !

thumb__MG_8519_1024

Method 3 : White, trans and then add bits of colors to the little ball. Mix the colors in, but only a bit! And then repeat the steps above!

thumb__MG_8520_1024

thumb__MG_8521_1024

thumb__MG_8524_1024

thumb__MG_8525_1024

Then you can add little eye pins if you wish to.

Bake the meringues!

Now lets go back to method 1 :

Choose some colors!

thumb_IMG_8542_1024

I mixed my colors with white to make it more pastel-y

thumb_IMG_8543_1024

I mixed the paint with a lot of water to get a smooth finish.

thumb_IMG_8544_1024

Then I painted the meringue.

thumb_IMG_8546_1024

thumb_IMG_8547_1024

Let it dry !

thumb_IMG_8557_1024

This is how the others look after baking!

thumb_IMG_8559_1024

And this is the one with method 3!

thumb_IMG_8560_1024

Then I cleaned dust off with my knife.

thumb_IMG_8563_1024

I added a phone strap !

thumb_IMG_8564_1024

You can add varnish if you want to ! I recommend it for method one !

thumb_IMG_8568_1024

The finished product !

thumb_IMG_8575_1024

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial ! I know I did 😛

These look super cute on your phone.

Let me know if you tried it out.

Crazy Macaron Cake Tutorial !

Tutorials

Today I will show you how to make a crazy tiny macaron cake!

I recreated the design by this lovely lady (angesdesucre), so if you’d like to purchase an actual amazing cake, go check her out!

You will need:

  1. clay in the colors you preferthumb__MG_8401_1024
  2. this tutorial on how to make tiny macarons
  3. fimo liquid and sculpy TLS →→→→→→♥
  4. some tools similar to the ones in the pictures
  5. and good light.

Let’s begiiiiiiiin !

First form a cylinder. Flatten it on both sides!


thumb__MG_8397_1024

Now you have to make the chocolate cream !

I took a little bit of clay (still to much) and put some liquid clay and some TLS on it. You may have to add more liquidy things later on.


thumb__MG_8400_1024

Than I take my spatula and cut the clay in pieces.. Depending on your tools you might want to do that before you add the TLS.

thumb__MG_8403_1024

This process will take a little way, it als depends on your clays softness.

After a while you can press it and mix it better.

thumb__MG_8409_1024

Just try your best.

thumb__MG_8410_1024

After a while it should look like this. Continue till all the lumps disappeared.

output_4RXejB-4

thumb__MG_8411_1024

When you’re finished you can start to add the cream to your ‘cake’.

thumb__MG_8427_1024

thumb__MG_8429_1024

And then suddenly it looks perfect ! JK obviously skipped some steps. Add a small glob onto the cake and drag it down the sides to get this dripping effect the original cake has.This will be sticky as..h….oney…if your cream is too sticky and won’t move you can add some fimo liquid (not TLS)

thumb__MG_8431_1024

As you can see mine is rather big and globby, but thats ok for me, even though it’s not an exact replica of the original cake.

thumb__MG_8432_1024

Now it is time to add your macarons. Now, I prefer baking them for 5 minutes before hand, so you can touch them without accidentally squishing them.

thumb__MG_8406_1024

thumb__MG_8408_1024

I wanted mine to stand 🙂

thumb__MG_8434_1024

Decorate the cake in what ever way you like !

thumb__MG_8435_1024

thumb__MG_8443_1024

I put some sprinkles on like I could see in the reference picture.

thumb__MG_8445_1024

thumb__MG_8451_1024

Yeah and this is the end !!

I hope you enjoyed this follow up tutorial for last weeks tutorial 🙂

If you’ve got any requests please let me now ! I am wondering about tutorials, as I see now use in making tutorials that have already been done.

Tiny Macaron Nation

Tutorials

Today I am going to show you how to create teeny tiny macarons.
It is rather easy. Well at least easier than you’d think.

You will need any kind of clay you prefer. I recommend soft clay (fimo).
Choose the colours you like aaaaaaaand…..

…..LETS START….

Start by making tiny balls. The size depends on what you believe you can do. If you’re insecure start with bigger ones. Just make sure the balls are kind of even ;).

thumb__MG_8365_1024

Then you’ve to flatten them out. Again that depends on your liking. I prefer flat ones 😀

thumb__MG_8369_1024

I have already started ^-^

A tip : use something to put them on, so you can maneuver around , and your head is not glued to the table. Better for your back/neck. And eyes, if your lighting sucks.

thumb__MG_8373_1024

thumb__MG_8375_1024

On to the next step. Take a needle and pick into the bottom. Make little holes, like the air-holes that appear on real macarons.

thumb__MG_8376_1024

thumb__MG_8377_1024

This is what it will look like. Don’t worry if they’re not perfect. First of all , the real ones are also one of a kind, and secondly, most people won’t be able to see them that well anyways 😛 .

thumb__MG_8379_1024

Next you’ll take your filling colour, mine will be chocolate so fimo-chocolate is my choice.

thumb__MG_8384_1024

Again, start by making small balls and flatten them out. Try to make the size fit your macaron. This is a bit difficult, you have to try a lot more, since the ball for the filling is so much smaller.

thumb__MG_8385_1024

If you want to check the size, you can pick it up with a knife, or similar thing.

thumb__MG_8386_1024

thumb__MG_8387_1024

(Excuse the lighting, it was was very cloudy day when I shot this)

Next you can put down the filling, and pick up the macaron half.

thumb__MG_8388_1024

Put it on you finger !

thumb__MG_8390_1024

thumb__MG_8391_1024

Now, there seem to be some lost pictures, but basically, pick up the filling again and place it on to the macaron-half. Then carefully pick up another half and place that on the other half.

There might be no pictures of this, as it can be quite ‘small work’. I didn’t have a free hand to take pictures.

But this is how the end result should look !

thumb__MG_8392_1024

The little cylinders in the back are for my next project. You can already find some pictures on my instagram, a link is in the down-bar ! ( click on the little triangle on the bottom of the page)

But the tutorial for this will be up next week !

So if you want to join me with the tutorial next week you can start by recreating these little macarons !

Have fun !

A motherly Tutorial

Tutorials

OK, so mothers day is on sunday so I thought I’d make a super quick and easy tutorial that anyone could totally do! So if you’ve forgotten about mothers day and you just need a quick idea this is perfect for you !

So let’s start!

You will need :

thumb__MG_8268_1024

magnets !( if you wanna make magnets!)

thumb__MG_8269_1024

SOME CLAY! the colors that you prefer 🙂

First you have to warm-up your clay!

So make a ball !

thumb__MG_8270_1024

Than you have to form a cylinder shape ! Kind of like this :

thumb__MG_8276_1024

After that try to make one end slightly more narrow. So it looks more like a cupcake base:

thumb__MG_8277_1024

Than take a tooth pick to make small indents int the base, to make it look like a cupcake wrapper:

thumb__MG_8278_1024

thumb__MG_8279_1024

Make the indents all the way around! Try to leave the same space in-between them !

thumb__MG_8280_1024

Now onto the cake bit of the cupcake : Roll and form :

thumb__MG_8284_1024

Since it need to fit the base, eye-measure if the size of your clay seems ok :

thumb__MG_8285_1024

Than flatten out the ends to make a hill-shape :

thumb__MG_8286_1024

Size check again just to me sure !!

thumb__MG_8287_1024

You can see that the “hill” doesn’t line up with the base, but thats ok , because in the next step, you will take a bit of rolled up aluminium-foil, and structure the hill :

thumb__MG_8288_1024

It should look something like this. If you want more structure you could use your tooth pick to add more. just make sure you use the other side or a new one, sometimes the color rubs off.

thumb__MG_8292_1024

Than pick it up. Mine got stuck to the glass I work on, so I used a knive, But if you’re to young you can use a piece of paper, or asked an older person

(not your mother though)

thumb__MG_8293_1024

As you can see it now fits perfectly ! 🙂

thumb__MG_8294_1024

I used the tooth pick again to structure the bottom/edge more, as I didn’t reach it with my alu-foil.

Now onto the frosting !!!

thumb__MG_8297_1024

Make a roll !

thumb__MG_8302_1024

Then make a snail-house on top of your hill _

thumb__MG_8303_1024

thumb__MG_8304_1024

I noticed that my roll was to thin, so I made it again but bigger. But do what you prefer.

thumb__MG_8305_1024

Nearly finished ! Just add a cherry on top ! (Maybe) If you want to make your piece into a charm add an eye pin now !

thumb__MG_8307_1024

Now you have to bake it for 30 minutes with 110°C ! You can notice in my pictures that there is quite a bit of dirt, I will show you how to get rid of that after baking ! While it’s baking please finish reading this! It is important that you  don’t let your clay piece cool down completely after baking.

After baking your creation should look the same :D. If you want to make magnets follow my lead 😀

thumb__MG_8337_1024

Take your clay out of the oven, but be careful it will be hot!

After a few seconds it will cool down and you can take it in your hand to cut it ! It should still be warm if you cut it ! That way it’s easier ! If you’re not old enough to use knifes , you can ask an older person. Again don’t asked your mom 😀 .

thumb__MG_8338_1024

Now you have two cupcakes ! MAGIC

thumb__MG_8339_1024

Now you can add the magnets. Use any you have at home or you can buy them at the shop.

thumb__MG_8340_1024

Mine are from amazon if you’re wondering.

No to the glue. I use special glue, but you can totally use super glue.

Depending on your age, please asked someone to help you. You don’t want to glue your fingers together, that wouldn’t be a nice surprise for your mother 😀

thumb__MG_8341_1024

Before glueing I cleaned my pieces but thats up to you.

You can either use an exacto-knife or, what I recommend for safety reason, is nail polish remover!  Just wet a q-tip with it and then go over the dirt, it should remove it, if it’s not to bad.

thumb__MG_8342_1024

thumb__MG_8343_1024

Perfect. !

thumb__MG_8344_1024

Now to the glueing part.

thumb__MG_8345_1024

Also, I broke one of my pieces, but you can super glue that, so don’t worry !

thumb__MG_8346_1024

Fixed !

thumb__MG_8347_1024

Than I glued the magnets on. ! I recommend putting the glue on the surface thats bigger, so you definitely don’t glue your fingers ! For me it was the cupcake.

thumb__MG_8349_1024

After you’ve let it dried completely you can glaze it ! if you have Fimo-glaze use that one, and if you haven’t got that you can use clear nail polish !

thumb__MG_8350_1024

All finished ! Yay! ( I didn’t have much time when I did this, so there is still dirt on the left one.. whoops.)

thumb__MG_8352_1024

I really hope that helped you out, if you forgot about mother’s day ( its on the 10th of May)

And even if you’re doing this for another occasion, I still hope you can surprise someone, ore yourself with your skills 🙂

That’s tutorially Bananas

Tutorials

G’day fellow crafters !

Today I will show you how to make super cute Banana-Splits!

DISCLAIMER: NOT FROM SCRATCH 

If you don’t have the parts to do this, you can either buy those online, or you can make them yourself with clay.

I might do a tutorial on making everything from scratch in the future.

You will need :

_MG_8112

Tiny Pipe and plastic bag

_MG_8116

Some sort of cream. I use this, as it is really good.

_MG_8126

Some sort of plate, either buy one or make it.

_MG_8127

Bananas and ice-cream.

 

I understand that this might be diffcult to make if you’re a beginner so here is youtube-tutorial so you can see how to make the Ice-cream scoop. The banana on the other hand is quite simple, just try to make the shape, and then texture it by making some slight cuts into the clay with a tool.

 

_MG_8115

 

Begin by inserting the pipe in the bag. Make sure to cut a hole into one edge of the bag before.

 

_MG_8117

 

Secure with scotch tape !

 

_MG_8125

 

Role the end of the bag like this so nothing can run out !
_MG_8128

 

Here is another close up of the bananas.

 

_MG_8129

 

Pipe the cream onto the plate in the little ‘cream dots’

 

_MG_8133

Like this !

_MG_8135

Then put the Bananas on there ! When the Cream dries everything will be super strong !

_MG_8138

 Now add some cream to a side you prefer to put the ice cream scoops on.

_MG_8140

Choose a colour combination you like !

 

_MG_8143

Here you can see that I chose to do different designs.

_MG_8145

_MG_8146

Then add more Cream, if you’d like.

_MG_8148

_MG_8149

_MG_8150

You can add sprinkles to your creation.

_MG_8151

To put on the sprinkles I wet the end of a paint brush.

_MG_8152

And then I dipped it into the micro pearls.

_MG_8157

_MG_8160

_MG_8161

The you can easily place it onto the cream without making a huge mess!

_MG_8162

 

FINISHED!  You can leave it like this  and use it for miniature doll houses

f.e. or you can glue a ring on the bottom when its all dried out.

_MG_8167

I choose to put a head-pin into it to make those Banana-Splits into necklaces.

_MG_8169

All done !

If you enjoyed this please let me know!

If you’re interested in buying those, I have listed them on my etsy !
