Snowman are a favorite of mine. I love their down to earth, simple, yet complex aura. They exude such warmth in spite of their cool exterior, don’t cha think? Approachable, oh heck yeah. Loveable, no doubt. Hug-able, unquestioningly yes! Oh, and let’s not forget how much fun they are. I have painted my fair share of snowmen over the years. There are 3 molds that I have painted so many times because I just love them and I love to give them to those who appreciate them.
This snowman has dual duties, not only does it sit and look adorable but, you can hide candy or other treasures inside. It is a two piece “Bloomer Snowman” from one of my favorite mold companies, Dona’s.
So far, I have his shoes and hat painted in a textured hunter green glaze and his face has its prerequisite coats. I will matt glazed his “snow” parts, I don’t want them to be too shiny. The inside is also glazed so that it is food safe. Now to get it fired so I can really get down to the fun stuff!
The beauty of this mold is that there are several different seasonal tops to go with the bloomer bottoms, I think I have 4 of them. Naturally, I have never made them interchangeable. Too much fun to detail out the bloomers for each season. I will show you what I mean soon……………. Cyn
