Mmm... Onions!

You know, when I was a kid I used to get into a lot of trouble when it came to putting my hands in the mixed pickle jar. I used to fish for all the pickled onions because they were my favourite part! Those lil' pearly white onions all succulent and sweet n' sour. Mmm.

A lady asked me to make her a cute lil' white pearl onion charm the other day, and this is what the result was.

I got to use a new clay layering technique for the subtle pink striping with the translucent white of the base. Instead of using acrylics, I though it would be fun doing something a little different. It's got three lil' grass green sprouts coming out the top and I used some tan knotted embroidery thread for some roots. I think I am happy with the result! :)

Kookie's Take On Rainbow Cake

I got so excited about rainbow cake in my last entry, that I just had to give it a try for myself. I ended up doing six layers of cake: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I then slathered on some fluffy white frosting, and generously sprinkled it with rainbow sprinkles and little crystal marble beads.

Yes, the rainbow sprinkles were all rolled by hand and nooo it isn't edible - it's all clay!

By the way, I am holding a Summer Promotion right now in my Etsy Shop! From June 25th until July 25th, anyone who buys something in my shop will be entered in a draw to win a Monster Kookies $25.00 Gift Certificate. So get on over there and grab a little somethin' somethin', because now is the best time! :) Oh yeah, and that rainbow cake is in my shop, too.
