It is quite appropriate, after having celebrated Women’s Day here in South Africa on the 9th of August, to post these really pretty pink girlie Cowgirl Boots I made for a client last week. Arusha asked me to make a pair of boots for a cake order she had for a young girl’s birthday. After searching the internet for a pattern for cowgirl boots and finding some rather odd looking examples, I decided to buy a child’s pair of wellington boots and form these boots around the original boots. I added my black modelling chocolate pieces onto the boots, cut and added stitching detail to the paste, allowed them to dry for a few hours and then removed the front and back pieces carefully from the wellingtons.
The pink embossed pieces I added once the black boots were dry once again adding stitching detail. The last addition were clusters of Aragon minikins, to complete a pair of boots any cowgirl would be proud to show off! Arusha I wish your young client many happy birthdays as she grows into a young woman and may she proud to walk in the footsteps of the brave young South African women who have walked before her.
So clever and beautiful Lisa!
Thanks Kim, that means so much coming from you. Your work is always perfect!
