Cake lace mould results...


Okay, considering this was my first go, pretty chuft with the results. I tried acrylic paint; polymere; pva; cosmic shimmer coloured pva; iridescent medium; embossing powder. They worked. Gesso and air dry clay didn't (air dry could have but was fiddley). Here's some pics of the results:

Next time I know I need to scrape off the excess as the detail of the moulds is incredible. I used versamark on some of the butterflies to help release, but to be honest, I didn't need it.

The mat took the heat of the heat gun as well. I sprinkled the embossing powder in and heated it, adding more where I needed it. This way I could be very specific where I put the powder.

Beautiful mats - I want them all now!!

I like the Cosmic Shimmer PVA and the Iridescent Medium ones the most, but they are all lovely.

Happy Crafting!!! :) X X

I KNEW IT!!! I knew I could use those cake making mould sheets (thingies) to craft with, I just couldn't work out what would work with it to make the flutterbies and Dragonflies.

Aww Leonie, I could cover you with lipstick kisses all over your head and nose for this post (and the last one). THANK YOU SO MUCH for doing the work so that I (we) could see how they'd work for us crafters who don't want to bake with them but create with them!

Sending love and crafty hugs ~ Cobs.x
