new butter cookies!
but not really. polymer clay in various sizes.
had some spare 'strawberry jam' leftover from a previous commission, so i decided to finish it up by piping it onto some cookies. the smaller ones on the rim of this plate are approx 4mm wide, so you can imagine how insanely fine the piping is -_-" i did this mostly at night, and my eyesight isn't that great then (maybe due to astigmatism, or just poor lighting), so i hadn't noticed the messy spots :( bah! i can probably scrape them off but that's a task for another time. preferably in the morn XD
the 'choco' ones were sort of an afterthought. again, leftover 'frosting' from my donut commissions. they were frosted a little differently, i'm playing around wtih the techniques, i think i prefer the 'flatter' effect.
i hate taking pics at night.
the size of the stars don't seem to match up with their heart and flower counterparts, grr.
and....another one of those julia usher inspired cookies :) i might wind up making mini 'cake' versions. am waiting for my order of microbeads to arrive...i hope to get them within the week!
on a more personal note, i've been really moody lately, and not very motivated to play with clay. i made some cupcakes and cookies which i haven't taken pics of, they're to be used concurrently with these cookies for a setting i have planned, just need to get to work on the setting itself first. having caught the flu last week, and now with a new complication, i might have to go for an earlier-than-scheduled checkup, and that always puts me in a foul mood.
