I am finally playing around with the new "In Colors". I have to admit, they were not my favorite collection. I've really liked the past groups, with the deep colors. I still miss Poppy Parade and Concord Crush. This new collection is very soft. I knew I would like Strawberry Slush, and the colors themselves are all very nice, but they just sat on my desk, poor little colors! Then I got the new Ribbon this week! WOW is that ribbon pretty!! It's ruffle-y and slightly stretchy and just beautiful!! I just had to use it ASAP! So, since I was in a new products mood, I decided to use a new stamp set and the new clay molds as well! My first attempt at the molds went pretty well. I read on some message boards that it was easier to remove the buttons from the molds if you set them in the fridge for a bit, so I did that. I was surprised by how light they are, and even the next day they are still slightly squishy, more of a foam than a clay. The clay was very easy to color. I just added some drops of re-inker to a bit of clay and mushed it in a plastic baggie.
This little bit of clay was enough to make 5 buttons, so I am happy at how much you can make with the pack of clay, it seems it will last quite a while.
Look at that pretty ruffle! And I really like how the colors work together! I am sure I will be using the new colors a lot. I am glad I gave them a try!!
