Snowflake Time

One of the best things about living in Florida is not having to deal with the cold white stuff on a daily basis in the winter. Most of our "cold" weather is found indoors and manufactured. One of my favorite places to find the "cold" is at ICE at the Gaylord Palms - and that is on our holiday list for Friday night. We did have a bit of a chilly weekend which has helped us get into the Christmas spirit.

I created a new pendant to wear to some of the holiday parties. It is a large snowflake on a premade coral pendant purchased at Michaels. The snowflake design is created with Margot's Miracle Mud from Unique Glass Colors. This is an amazing new product that I will certainly be using on lots of future projects! You put the mud into a cake decorating bag with a very fine tip and pipe it out just like frosting. There is enough open time to use a paintbrush to manipulate the mud into all sorts of shapes. It also dries hard, is paintable and can even be fired in a kiln. Talk about versatility!! If you want more information, just follow the link in the right hand column for Unique Glass.
