Toadstool houses

I think you can tell how much I love this mould

Just creating the scene on the top of the vintage teacup set was easy to make with this mould, on the saucer I created realistic mushrooms, so much so that my Grandson thought they were real.

I was thinking that it could be sprayed with a scent or drops of essential oils dropped on to create a wonderful room fresh inner gift.

Flower Pro Toadstools and Mushroom Mould

I just couldn’t wait to show you the new addition of the KatySue Designs Flower Pro mould, this is the Mushroom/Toadstool silicone mould which is simply amazing. I love that is has a separate veiner mould with all of the texture needed for the underside of the mushroom.
I mad this using the Mushrrom mould the log slice impression mould, the fern mould and veiner and the tree bark mould, I also used Heartysoft air dry clay.

There are so many different fungi, mushroom and toadstools you can make and the new moulds with give you the perfect design.
My whole design started with an empty Pringles tube and cutting it down in size and covering it with the clay.

Rolling parts of the bark back to make the log realistic and using paints for detail and shading.

Toadstools and Mushroom Mould at its Best

I have to say as mushrooms go this mould ticks all the boxes for me, I can go from realistic to fantasy and it looks amazing, so easy to use too. The Flower Pro range is simply the best.

The texture on the mushrooms are fantastic

I also used the bark mould around the steampunk top hat and my husband came to the rescue to make me the hat stand.

Of course the scene wouldn't be complete without a fern mould as ferns are notorious for thriving in the damp ground.

I finished the top of the hat with the Log Slice impression mould.

All of the moulds can be found here, this is a brand new launch so you could be one of the first to get your hands on them
They release on Tuesday 27th October 2020

Flower Pro Poppy Mould by KatySue Designs

The Poppy Mould by KatySue designs I used to create a Remembrance Day model last year is still one of my favourite silicone moulds, It was designed by the fabulous Chef Nicholas Lodge along with the Flower Pro Fern mould. 

When you buy from the Flower Pro collection you are buying into a whole educational program that leads you buy the hand to create amazing realistic flowers with step by step videos, isn't that just fantastic?
So I used a fabric hardener (Powertex) to create this model and if I was to put it in the garden I would spray it with a weatherproof varnish.

KatySue Designs Rainbow Teddy Mould

Such a cute Mould with loads of possibilities and it launches on Create and Craft Friday 16th October at 9am and 1:30pm with Debbie Reybould
It is such a lovely character then can be made for either boys or girls and it even has a miniature blossom that you can use for decorating your bear.
Although I have used this for home decor I can just imagine how many cakes this character will be on to celebrate children’s birthday’s.
With this one I added it onto one the MDF caddy’s turning it into art storage for a little one, keeping all art  stuff safe in one place.

As you can see I modelled a little cap for my teddy.
