Fondant Arts and Craft

What we need

  • White fondant
  • Food colouring, Yellow and black
  • Divide your fondant into 3, one white, make yellow for the body and black for the eyes, and stripe details o the body.
  • Next role the body out into an oval like shape.
  • Then place some small round black dots for the eyes,
  • Roll out a thin stripe, this is to create the wings, wound around the body of the bee.
  • Then make some wings from the white fondant. Make sure the wings of your bumblebee are not too thick, this would make them heavy and would stay up.
  • Make as many as you want, why not try making them in different sizes also.

Creating London Colourful Terrace houses out of recycled milk cartons.

First things first, spend time collecting used milk and juice boxes, rinse out thoroughly leave to dry out for a day.

Select your choice of paint. I choses these Baker Ross Pastel Ready Mixed Paint for Kids. they are pastel colours good as a replica of the NW3 London postcode town houses.

Cover your work surface with bine liners or old newspapers, set aside some to place painted cartons to dry overnight. the boxed will require several coats of paint, I did 4 coats of paint.

Set painted cartons aside to dry. Once dry, use your white chalk pens to draw in the details. This next step dries up very quickly.

There you go, your houses are all set, Enjoy!
