Another new and exciting product from Crystal Candy was the inspiration for this vintage Music Box and ballerina figurine from my previous post. This time the new Bas Relief Mould with its vintage feel, was the perfect finish for my sugar paste music box.
I dusted the Bas Relief Mould with Crystal Candy’s Pearlescent Lustre in Antique Champagne and then pressed my sugar paste mixed with chocolate modelling paste (coloured a deeply dark grey) to fit snugly into the mould. I popped the mould into the fridge for approx 15 min (time always varies with me – depending on how distracted I get while waiting!) This, below, was the result after gently peeling the paste out of the mould.
I cut this into 3 equal sections to wrap around the music box that I had formed using chocolate modelling paste and then made another vintage piece for the lid. The chocolate modelling paste mixed with the sugar paste allowed me time to press the lid to fit in line with the bottom of the box. To cover the joins I used a strip of pearls mould & the same paste to create a line of tiny pearls stuck over each join. The fun part was dusting the entire box again with a light dusting of the Pearlescent Lustre, Antique Champagne and watching each relief come to life!
With an added embossed key the music box was perfect for my ballerina figurine who balanced gracefully in her pink and lace tutu. Thank you Ray for trusting me to try out this wondeful new Bas Relief Mould.
