Today was a day of happy accidents. The ball that I cast and cut has to be very precise. I use no adhesive for this project. The hole is cut so that the mason jar rim pops into place. Once the rim is in, it will not come back out with out breaking the topper. I usually wait until I finish all the painting, then pop in the rim. Today was no different, well just a little different. As I popped in the rim, I heard a whole different pop…………………………..
The ball I casted wasn’t as thick as I normally make them. A happy accident you ask? Yeah, because I was not happy with some of the colors. The face and straw hair were too close in color. Now, I can make the changes. I grabbed another ball, but this time I popped in the rim right after the base coating was dry. No problems this time.
This time I hope I have the colors dialed in…………… Cyn
