So introducing the two new members of my family Nathan and Owen.
Needless to say I've been busy. My family of four turned into a family of six before a blink of an eye, and I have not had any time to craft. I did manage to put together one tutorial today that I would like to share. I purchased this clay/ play dough eraser making kit a while back and have been wanting to try it. I couldn't come back into blogging without posting at least one tutorial :) Enjoy! See video tutorial below or here.
|Macaron eraser diy. So fun!|
|This kit is the Sculpey eraser clay. The kit I bought is sold out on Amazon, but there are other types on Amazon. This one looks like the same kit but in a different package.|
|To make the macaron, roll out one ball and two cylinder "snake" shapes. The ball size is dependent on what size you want your macron. I rolled out a .75 inch ball. The snakes should be long enough to wrap around the circumference of the ball.|
|Cut the ball in half. Remold the ball edges into nice half spheres, as cutting the will mush them a bit.|
|Wrap snakes around sphere.|
|Add texture to snake shape. See video tutorial for exactly how I do this|
|Take alternate color and create flat circle shape for filling.|
|Bake according to instructions. Again see video tutorial for exact instructions and tips.|
I do hope to start up blogging again, but having four kids takes up the majority of my time. I truly want to thank all the readers that are reading this post for sticking by my blog even when I haven't. Happy crafting!
