Last of February crafts

February 25, 2014

The remaining crafts from me and my son for this month.  I’ll start off with the mug I made him.  First I followed an interesting and easy technique to get the design on the mug.

Then I traced the design with sharpie markers and “fired” it.  Disappointingly the colors didn’t even stay close to true.

After "firing" it in the oven, colors look completely different.

Next is the mini figure head cake I made for the boychild’s birthday party.  It’s OK, not one of my better ones I think.

Finally is the picture my son painted that I liked and his lego message to me.
