Candles in small glass containers

Hi !!!!

Have made these candles in small glass containers for my friend.

These candles are very easy to make. You just need to melt the wax and mix colors accordingly. Bright colors will do wonders, since these are glass and dark colors acts as a contrast to its  transparent surface, making it very attractive and beautiful. While pouring the wax  inside the containers you just need to be sure that it is not molten hot. Using these container candles are also quite easy as it doesn't makes the surface messy. Those who have just started candle making this is a very easy and a must do project.

Take care and have a nice weekend !!!!!

Crochet Edging

Hi !!

This project is a crochet lace/edging which I have made for the neck of my kurta. I haven't attached it as yet, but this is how it is going to look.

This multicolored lace is very simple to make, I have picked up this design from a crochet book lying with me.

1. Make a chain of desired length.
2 Row 1 , make SC in 2nd chain from the hook and in each following chain to follow.Make 4 chain and turn.
3.  Row 2, make 3tr cluster at the base of turning chain. This way you have a cluster of 4tr. Ch 7, again a cluster of 4 tr in the same space. Skip 6 sc, then repeat , cluster of 4 trebles with 7 chains in between. Cont. till you reach the end of the row.
4. Row 3 , in each loop make 3sc, picot(chain of 4 then sc at the end of the chain). Follow this step thrice in the same loop. This way you have 3 picots in one loop. Cont. till end of the 3rd row. Fasten off.

 I also plan to attach a more wider lace on the arms of kurta. As soon as I have decided the design for the same, I will share it with you.

Till then take care, be safe and happy.

Clay work

Hi !!!!!! My computer is still down, and I do not know how long it is going to take to get it repaired.Hopefully, it will get o.k ASAP and I would be able to post pics of my work. Currently I am using my son's iPad to do this blog post. But I have no idea how to download pics in this. Well "something is better than nothing" and this fits aptly in my situation.

 Anyways, today we will find out various forms of clay dough that can be made easily at home to create beautiful artifact.

 1 There is lamasa clay which is made by mixing cornflour, white glue,glycerine,zinc oxide and lemon juice. We have to cook it until it becomes thicker in consistency.Oil colors are mixed in the dough to give various shades/color to the art projects.

 2 Another form of clay is the one made of ceramic,white glue and little bit of glycerine. It's very easy to make and no cooking is can use acrylic colors to paint the finished projects.

 3 Then there is cold porcelain dough which is again a very soft form of clay that is used to mold various form of flowers,figures etc.The ingredients that goes into the formation of this clay is quite similar to lamas a with minor difference. Can be made by mixing cornflour,white glue,glycerine,lemon juice,Vaseline and little bit of water. You need to cook this mixture until it takes oatmeal consistency. After that knead the mixture into a soft dough. Apple cold cream in your hands before kneading. In these projects oil colors work best. But you can use acrylic paints on the finished objects.

 4 By mixing  flour,salt and food colors also one can create another form of dough which is best suited for kids project as it does not involves any kind of chemicals. in this case the finished projects are baked. 


 To prevent the clay from drying out soon, it should be kept in airtight containers.

Lemon juice, zinc oxide are various forms of preservatives added to avoid formation of termites since it involves food ingredients.

To make things easier various cutters are available to make different flowers/leaves.

 This info that I am sharing with you is solely based on my own personal knowledge of the same. I have worked with these clay and this is how I make them. In case you have your own version of the same, pls feel free to share it in this blog.
