Making white sponge flowers

A new work on flower making. After a gap I'm here with flower making. Majorly everyone is familiar with cloth flower making and paper flower making. Here is something new with Sponge flowers. Yes flowers made out of white sponge.

The technique of making is exactly the same the only difference is material, instead of cloth or paper you need is a sheet of sponge to make these beautiful little rose flowers.

All that you need is sheet of sponge, aluminium wire, thread and green tape.

Here are some pictures of sponge flowers by which you will come to know the technique of sponge flower making.


Some more closer view on flowers.

How to do Ceramic work on Cup?

Here after a long time doing something on ceramic. I was just wondering on what should be the next things I'll be doing. As I'm making a Ceramic mural which is quite exciting for me as I'm doing it or the first time i thought of having a small ceramic work somewhere else too. So this time its a cup a normal looking plane cup.

I have done this ceramic work on cup which turned out amazingly too good.

This time ceramic does not have fevicol and all for mixing i used DINK. It is edible gum crystals are available in small pieces especially meant for eating after being cooked. It has 2 colour one clean white and brown. The brownish variety is basically used for adhesive purpose.

You need to get 1kg of DINK grind it properly and make fine powder out of it. Now soak the powder in water. The water level and DINK powder level should be same, now check out the next day and you can find it sticky and highly adhesive.

Materials used:

1. Whitening powder
2. DINK adhesive
3. Fevocil (White Glue)

How to make the dough:

1. Firstly take some amount of DINK and add 2tbsp of Fevicol (white glue)according to that add the same proportion of Whitening powder.

2. Mix all the three together nicely and make a dough. Proper soft dough.

3. To keep this dough last longer you need to keep it covered in a wet cloth inside an Air tight container.

4. Now take the required dough and make any shapes and designs you need and use it on any surface and make a beautiful looking ceramic work.

Here is the one i made on the cup. Ceramic flowers on the cup.

How is it? Comments please:)
