These were the first two I made. They are skinner blends stamped and baked. After baking, I antiqued with LPC. I think the pin sticks are too long and flexible. Both the pins and skewers bend very easily.
Next was an attempt to mimic ceramic. After texture and shaping a white base, I baked the pieces. When cool, they were colored with LPC tinted with different inks. The skewers are a bit stronger this time. I covered toothpicks with clay, textured and colored with tinted LPC.
This is the only one of the three Faux Ceramic pieces that did not burn when I zapped them with the heat gun. I am usually very good at preventing burning, but this time when I was heating the back of the piece, the front burnt. I got the trick of it by the time I got to this one.
