An Ornate Fairy Box by Linda Cain, Prima Modeling Material, + More

New Prima Modeling Material!  
    The BRAND NEW Prima Air Dry Modeling Material is HERE! I've been drooling over this stuff, and I'm so happy it's finally in stock. It works like a dream, and is SO easy to use. Plus you get a TON OF IT in each bucket. Yes, you get a bucket and you will use it. I've been told it has a shelf life of 2 years, which I'm sure you won't need.
    Linda Cain has been playing with this magical stuff this week. See what she had to say below!

Play Time with Linda!  
    Linda has been playing with the Prima Air Dry Modeling Material and the verdict is in! It's WONDERFUL!
    She said it's very easy to work with and takes paint really well (no gesso needed). A dusting of cornstarch in the molds first wouldn't hurt, but wasn't necessary with this stuff. If you plan on gluing your cast pieces to a curved surface (like a knob), let the clay dry about half way, and then glue to your surface while still a bit wet and pliable! 
    Linda created the knobs below with the Curio Trinkets Mold and our Wood Knobs. And of course the clay. 
    These knobs make a GREAT embellishment for mixed media projects!!! They don't have to be functional knobs. They certainly can be, but have tons of other uses too.

    See a quick video on using the Prima Air Dry Modeling Material!

Ornate Fairy Box by Linda Cain!  
    Design Team Member Linda Cain created this gorgeous Fairy Box, that highlights the new Finnabair Stamps and Antique Labels so nicely. Linda Cain is so amazing at combining Rubber Stamping with Mixed Media and Assemblage pieces. And because the pieces in our Kits come flat, it's easy to stamp them up before assembling. I often forget about this, so thanks for the beautiful reminder Linda! You can see Linda's full post with tips and links here:

Altered Tin Video by Finnabair!  
    We love this altered tin by Finnabair. You can find many of the goodies to make it in the shop HERE. And keep in mind, you don't have to limit the techniques to a tin. Many of our Shrine Kits and Shadow Boxes would be perfect too. You can find the full video by Anna HERE or by clicking the photo below!

    I was excited to get a mention in the video also. I was the one who made the "white and blue chocolates"!!!
    (See my chocolates below!!! They were a blast to make and even more fun to eat. YUM!!!)
