Fondant Frenzy…..

Day 2…..  I had laid out on paper just what I needed to accomplish everyday to complete my mission.  The kitchen table was going to be my work station, it was ready for me to get started on the next animal as soon as I came home from work.  Laptop open, deer fondant colors ready to go, tutorial ready to press play!  Here we go.  I was actually excited to get my fingers into something creative.  It had been such a long time.

My first attempt was wonderful until he started to slump.  My deer became the incredible shrinking puddle.  Well, that’s an extreme exaggeration, lol.  I had not used enough of the  CMC Powder, which gives the fondant some strength to hold its shape.  So, by adding more to the body itself and a bamboo skewer, my deer held his own when I placed his head.  The shrinking ceased!

The details to the body were easy in comparison.  I was gaining confidence by the animal!

 

So far so good…..

I needed to wait to see if the slumping occurred over night.

Yahoo, my baby was holding his own….. Mr. Fox you’re next!  Cyn

About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
