In the Studio

I am waiting patiently for Spring to arrive.  The Witch Hazel is blooming, and the snow has pretty much melted away.  To keep myself busy on these chilly Winter days I have been playing with Ice Resin. ice resin bonbon heartsThese little heart bonbons were made using a heart candy mold.  I added a little charm and some pretty script paper for the backing.  They will be turned into pendants, I think.

I am also working on creating tutorials for the latest Gilded Girl Stash Society Box from A Gilded Life.  Here’s what I was sent to work with. 2014-02-22 10.47.18

Gorgeous, right?

I have a few projects in mind, and started working on one today.  Here’s a sneak peek!

  • I am a frequent but silent visitor to your lovely blog. Love your heart “bon bons” and all of the lavish projects using your Gilded Stash. If its not a trade secret…. what did you fill the candy mold with to get such lovely translucent hearts? – Amy Bauer

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment, Amy! I used Ice Resin in the candy molds, and am having a blast experimenting with it.

  • Thanks for the info! It is wonderful how generous the crafty blog is with sharing tips and techniques.
