I was so excited when I unpacked all the Alice in Wonderland goodies that I couldn’t wait to get started. The acrylics were so wonderfully bright and bold that I decided I needed to create something totally different to my usual style. So, it is the tea party set that I have chosen to share with you all this month.
I did the same with the saucers and I also used a little bit of wallpaper on the top part of the cups.
I then used the gorgeous acrylic paints to paint splodges of colour onto the clay. I left this to dry for a short time before using a damp sponge to gently wipe the paint back off the surface of the clay.
More ivory stone art clay was added to the handle, spout and outer edges of the teapot. Lots of daisies were made using stone art clay in the daisy mould and these were piled onto the teapot (leaving some space for Alice) and secured using a little Powertex underneath the flowers.
The little Alice figure was also painted using the acrylic paints and powertex.
The brightest most funky piece I think I have ever made – I have a feeling I may have been converted from the dark side (well… temporarily at least!)
