Our first pottery class

Besides the first mosaics class, we also had our first pottery class at the resort in the summer holiday.

It was our first time and was more difficult than I imagined.

It was difficult to make the shape that I wanted on the tuning table.

I wanted to make a pen-holder. But I could not control my fingers well.

Sometimes, I made it concave by accident. And sometimes, I made it bent irregularly carelessly.

So as my husband and my son, they found that quite difficult to make a good shape!

Finally, the teacher helped us to make the desired shapes. We only did the decorations on it, lol!

Our First Mosaics Projects

This summer holiday, we went to a resort.

There are some art classes in the resort, such as clay, shoe / tshirt / cap design, pottery, bottle drawing classes.

We attended a few of them. The class that I liked most is the mosaics class.

This was the first time my son and I did the mosaics projects. We felt so exciting!

In the class, we were given a wood photo frame as the foundation to adhere the tiles on.

There were so many pretty tiles for our choice. Some of them were complete and more of them were in pieces.

If we wanted to cut our shapes, we can use a cutting tool.

Captain America Shield Cake for Daddy

Besides the rainbow color key holder, we also baked a cake for Daddy.

To be consistent, we tried to make a cake related to 'Hero'.

Finally, my son and I decided to make a Captain America Shield cake.

But.... how to decorate it?

I do not have much experience on decorating big cake.

So my son and I searched information on the web.

Wow! There is a lot of related cakes.

Though decorating the whole shield with cream seems more pretty, we both don't like red cream which looks like ....blood.

Thus, we decided to use fruit for decoration. This must be healthier.

Finally, we use white cream, blueberry, strawberry and some red sparkle gel for cake to decorate it.

For the cake top, we used 'You are our Hero!'

Below is the cake that we made. How do you think?

Father's Day Key Holder - You are our Hero!

In this Father's Day, we made a special key holder for Daddy.

We used glass decoration colors to decorate one side of the plastic key holder.

First, we wrote 'You are our Hero!' inside the key holder. We wrote the mirror image of the words.

After letting the words dry completely, we decorated the background.

We used rainbow colors as background. This is my son's favorite when doing crafts.

I think we had put the color too thick. The blue and purple colors are too dark that we hardly see the word 'Hero'.

On the other side of the plastic key holder, we printed and put a small family photo.

That looks so great. Daddy loves it so much!

Why we use the words 'You are our Hero!'? Because we watched the movie 'The Avengers' recently. lol

We have also baked a cake with the same theme. Will post it later.
