Show and Tell Monday

It's Monday again which means it's Show and Tell! For us at Make Mine Pink, Show and Tell Monday is a day where we share and blog about what we have done in the past week, it could be anything.

This piece was also made in Hong Kong. I know it's a tad early for Christmas, LoL but I wanted to learn it in advance for this year. Also, I plan to make a few variations to this. I'm currently obsessed with doors. I brought the piece back home to make further reinforcement work to the cake. What happened was that the clay didn't dry quickly enough for me to slice and decorate, so my teacher told me it would be best to let it dry completely before doing anything.

I had a hard time deciding what colour I wanted for this. I was torn between this and pink. But knowing I would be making another Pink Door, I decided to change this time and opted for a mint green. Now, I also have plans to make a Blue, Turquoise, Purple, Yellow Door. I think the different colours would bring out different feel to the piece.

The original design was slightly different from mine. I wanted Macarons, and so I made a Macaron mountain. I so love it! It's colourful and look yummy.

I started work on my Pink hopefully I have something to show soon.

Measurements for this piece: 15.2cm (height) by 5.9cm (width)
