Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!
My first project for December is this silver and gold Holiday Canvas I created using the items found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club, with just a few staple items to go along and a cut file to use as a template for my poinsettias.
This project was rather simple to go together! There was a bit of elbow grease used to roll out the clay for my poinsettias, but after I knew what direction I was headed it just came together! Check it all out in my video:
After I really smooshed the clay into the Prima Mould I let it start drying to make it easier to pull out of the mould. I also found that I could bend the mould some and let those pieces dry before taking them out. The mould flattens back out, while the ornaments stay curved! If my word-y description is clear as mud, I show my methods in my video!
For my poinsettias, I used a cut file from the Silhouette store to make templates that I pressed into some rolled out clay and cut out with a craft knife, then hand-shaped and set aside to dry. The centers of the poinsettias are just some little balls of the clay I rolled with my fingers before letting them dry.
After my clay pieces were all in place I coated everything with the silver paint from the kit. Then things got really wet when I just started adding on the PearlEx powders! There was a lot of water, a lot of letting the powders flow how they wanted, and a lot of heat gun use! (And yes, in the video you see me using two heat guns to get the job done!)
Thank you for joining me here at my little corner! I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit!
