I probably don't need to explain how I made these, but I do it anyway. :-)
Then it's ready to paint and decorate. So on to the next project.
I started with cutting the 'ears' of the wooden piece, and painting it white.
I wanted to fill up the gaps of the wooden lasercut piece with something sparkling. I mixed airdrying clay with black and white water colour paint (did not have grey), to contrast the white, and loads of glitter.
But that was not glittery enough for me, so I added some more, pure glitter.
Oh, and this is something every miniaturist (or scrapbooker, card-maker, etc) should have: a metal-coloured wax. I turns anything -plastic, paper, etc- in looking like being made of metal. Rub it lightly, and textures will show themselves. It's just FANTASTIC! I don't understand why it's so hard to get, any decent hobbyshop should sell this!
I might add a glossy varnish on top of the cake-stand, not sure yet.
Hope you enjoyed it!
