Little Angels

I found two little angels in my button box the other day - don't know where they came from, but they're rather cute and I would like more of them! So.....I decided to do something I've been meaning to try for ages....making moulds.

Here are the buttons......

I pressed one into Fimo and baked it.....


I pressed Paperclay into the mould and when it was part-dry I cut around and neatened it.

I'm now trying out different metallic paint and wax techniques.

I'm heading towards my 12,000th visitor so its time I did some give-aways! I will do some artwork using these and give them away along with some angels (painted and unpainted) for you to use yourself. Might be useful for Christmas decorations!

More details next week.

Been out of the loop because of a wonky computer, so, missed my visits to you.

These are great pieces and such a fortuitous find!

Wow - this is all amazing!

I love what you did with the little angel - and how you made a casting yourself. I'm just now beginning to begin thinking about using clay, and wondering what to do when I have something that I want to make a look-alike. Like so my Ins dont' go Out and vice versa. Now I know how to! Thanks for the demo!

Will have to come back to explore more when I have more time. Thanks for sharing your talent with us all.
