Hubble Bubble...


Well here's the other Barrel.
For this one I put a piece of card in to the height I wanted, placed a flat piece over the top and then poured in some balls, I then added some dark red glass paint and stirred. Added more balls, more paint and stirred again. The glass paint I used was a set of cheap children's glass paints from the pound shop. It's really sticky but can be washed off using water and there's no smell. I've then used some very tacky glue to glue them down the sides. When it's completely dry, I'll give it another coat of glass paint. I'm really pleased with my balls and my barrels..

I love the mad scientist experiments with the balls! Now how about doing one with a few eyeballs mixed in? Maybe some worms hanging over the edge?

They are looking really good! Keep it up!

Yeh, that would be great. Eyeballs and worms.... and puupy dog tails added too!
Looks like you will be ever so busy with the last one.
I'm trying to make a pumpkin shaped cauldron with arms and him holding a spoon. I dont have the right wire but shall see how it all turns out.
Will post a picture tomorrow for you.
Its going to be for my house because i have time this evening to make something for myself rather than doing my usual sunday night lisitings on ebay.
Got it all on the go and did the face and not being able to wait to add the arms i ruined it all, so having to start all over again.
Love the second one with the red balls and the glass paint works a wonder. Shall buy some of that.
Off to my cauldron... lol

I had been making polymer clay grapes last night, so that's all I can think about right now :D

This is wonderful! It could also be grapes if arranged just so, I guess! I'll have to make a note to check back when I add to the witch's cottage agsint this October.
