2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Painting Pottery: Lace Stenciling on: October 01, 2010 10:44:16 AM


This is one of my favorite techniques for painting pottery!

Lace-stenciling:

Prep: Tape off any areas that you do not want to paint with painters tape.

Step 1. Paint 2 thin coats of a light color of paint (I used white), allowing the first coat to get tacky before painting the second.

Step 2. Paint a thick coat of white paint, then press the lace into the paint right away. The lace will be held in place by the paint.

Step 3. Paint 3 thin coats of blue paint over lace with a sponge, allowing paint to get tacky between coats. Be careful not to lift the lace while painting, or else the paint will seep under the lace.

Step 4. Peel off the lace and painters tape.

Tips: The smaller the holes in the lace, the more difficult it is to use this technique. I like to pick lace that has a geometric pattern and larger openings.

Mandyhello - I'm really enjoying this icing right now because it's so flexible. If it's too thick, you can add milk, and if it's too thin, you add powdered sugar. Just takes a little trial and error to get the consistency right at first.

It looks like exactly the same thing! I hadn't seen that site before but it looks like a great resource for instructions and diagrams!

There are some books (like this one http://www.amazon.com/3D-Origami-Step---Step-Illustrations/dp/4889960570/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1285874234&sr=1-1) that give designs for all sorts of shapes with the same basic piece. I'm going to try a penguin next!
6  COOKING / Dessert / Halloween Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies on: September 30, 2010 11:52:19 AM


This is a fun variation on classic sugar cookies for fall. Two-tone glace icing.

Recipe:

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies

Ingredients:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (a mix of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice)
1 cup butter (salted)
1 egg
1-1/2 tsp vanilla

Prep. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Step 1. In mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla.

Step 2. In a separate bowl, combine flour and pumpkin pie spice with a fork. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, while mixing.

Step 3. Roll dough 1/4-inch thick, refrigerate for 20 minutes, then cut shapes. Transfer shapes to cookies sheets and bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees F. Cookies are done when edges begin to turn golden brown. Transfer cookies to racks to cool.

These swans are are a lot easier to make then it looks - there is one basic step that is repeated, then used to build the swan. This guy was made with wrapping paper, but any thin paper can be used.
