Just uploading pics from my phone, then I'll log onto my PC and edit in explanations
Challenge: October Detention
My first go at colourwork! this hat is for my daddy for christmas... and as any knitter will tell you colourwork definitely requires constant vigilance!
Challenge: Bean, shrimp
I thought I'd really challenge myself, and shrink down the biggest thing I could think of.... dinosaurs! These diplodocus are now each less than 4" from head to tail tip
I used this gingerbread recipe
and added 100g of dark chocolate roughly chopped in before I rolled and cut the dough
My first go at batik on paper, then turned into a bookmark. I used a thingy for making fondue to melt down old candles and then painted with the wax
I wanted to use all stock for these bookmarks, so I had to adapt my designs to work with what I had!
Patina is a goddess in the discworld novels, a parody of Aphrodite... and patina carries a penguin everywhere she goes
I had anticipated this being a very simple craft but actually I had difficulty finding an ink that would adhere to the paintchips well, and it took a fair amount of experimentation... you can see my first and final attempts in the picture to see the difference
