Happy Vesak Day

Today is Vesak Day.

Vesak Day is a day commemorating the Birth, Enlightenment and Death of Buddha .... I have made many stupas for the past few years...... My own way to show my respect to Buddha.....my little offering to Him.....
My skill wasn't so good as you can see from the pictures but I really enjoyed making of stupas . I have made a lot of design but mostly copied from the the real stupa. (make them into miniature size) I used paper clay and I didn't colour them except the golden stupa I also didn't use any vanish to proctect them but you see, they can last for so many years....
Wishing all of you a Happy Vesak Day!

Toppings

You can make use beads, art sand, paints, handmade fruits and etc... for your topping of a cake or pastries. But sometimes you can't get what your want eg peanut. So I have made some of my own topping eg peanut & rainbow icing. Try to think some other things that can use for your icing......brainstorming.......er.....

Miniature Hor fun & kueh


Using Japanese air dry clay is much more easier than using paper clay. This is true, but for certain items I think paper clay will make the outlook more realistic for example a basket.

Make use of your miniature creations

You can have fun ideas on your handmade miniature dolls, cakes, animals etc. some examples :

I used paper clay did all these some of them I keep it for more than 5 yerars and it still in good condition. How long can your paper clay creations last? it all depand on the moment you make it. Let it dries completely before you paint  and  I think this is very important step.

 As time is limited in class so I have to paint when it is only half dried.
I always tell my students to parctise at home and paint after it completely dried. You will find the different .

This size is about 9 x 10 cm.
