The base is polyclay with liquid polyclay/pigment powder used to do a faux ceramic finish.
I accidentally baked the glaze too hot and the back of the originally white polyclay discolored in a mottled brown, but I think it looks cool! WIN! Sending it off today with some homemade pecan roca. Pecans and pine needles all foraged within 5 miles of home I hope she likes it.
I think the mottled look is more natural
That’s truly lovely.
This is absolutely stunning. And I love the stoneware appearance of the base!
It is stunning! I think it’s extra special you bith worked on it. It will be loved for a long time.
Gorgeous basket! And mmmmmm pecan roca
Beautiful!!! I would never want to put anything inside that basket… I’d probably hang it on a wall…
This is so great. What a beautiful keepsake!
It turned out so lovely, Kira! I love that it represents a bit of your lifestyle…foraging in the woods!
This is just amazing! What a beautiful gift.
Oh wow! This is so beautiful!
Ooooh, so lovely!
Omg It’s just so gorgeous!!! truly a great gift. I’m sure it will be treasured.
This is lovely and I love that both of you worked on it.
What a pretty and thoughtful gift! I think the mottled bottom makes the poly clay look more natural/organic. WIN!
Oh, that came out beautiful. All the details are perfect, including the rustic burnt bottom!
Very special gift!
