Sweets Overload

Just spent the day making miniature sweets to use for my granddaughters to give away to their friends for Christmas. Itty bitty teany tiny charms. I made pancakes with butter and syrup, a chocolate donut, peas, carrots, pumpkins, tomatoes, suckers, chocolates, snow cones and a big hand full of candy corn. I also made a tiny pitcher using the play dough flower cane for decoration.

I then made ivory/bone beads and faux jade beads. When I did the faux jade I used Pearl Ex to tint the translucent clay. The neat thing is that when the light hits the beads just right they have the green shimmer from the Pearl Ex. I used some left overs to do a natasha bead focal bead with the ivory.bone mix and jade caps.

I also used gold clay to get that fascinating mica shift by using a tiny ribbon of violet clay and then clop and flip to get the shine and veins. Wow did all of these turn out great.

I took pics of the candy corn as I made them to use for a tutorial which I will post soon. So easy and so cute.

I will post the pics of the other treats this week I hope.
